About this title


Heinrich Wittenwilers Epos 'Der Ring' (Konstanz, um 1408/10) ist ein amusanter, raffiniert erzahlter Versroman, ein Stuck bester Unterhaltung (es wurde in den letzten Jahren dreimal ubersetzt). Der Konstanzer Kurienadvokat verarbeitet in einzigartiger Weise personliche Welterfahrung und gruppenspezifische Sichtweisen und Interessen mit einer gelehrt-philosophischen Tradition der Weltdeutung zu einer allegorischen Dichtung. Das baurische Liebespaar des 'Rings' steht gleichnishaft fur eine Weltsicht, die in der Tradition des lateinischen allegorischen Epos wurzelt: Danach hat das Elend dieser Welt seinen Ursprung in der Abkehr des Menschen vom liebenden Gott hin zur 'geistlichen Hurerei' - zur 'spiritualis fornicatio'. Wirkliche und literarische Welt Wittenwilers werden hier erstmals im Zusammenhang entziffert und in ihrem Verhaltnis zueinander beschrieben.
