Five experts present their viewpoints on four of the most important figures in recent intellectual and cultural history. Professor Egon Schwarz evaluates Hofmannsthal as a critic; Professors C. V. Bock and Lother Helbing combine forces in an analysis of Gundolf; Professor Yakov Malkiel has provided an evocative, ornately styled document luimain on Kantorowicz; Professor Evans presents the first substantial study of Curtius. The combined insight of the authors gives us a new and better understanding of these cultural figures, their associations with and influences on each other, and the broad impact they still have.
