Leseliste Amerikanistik


Die nachfolgende Leseliste versteht sich als Vorschlagsliste.
Die Studierenden sind nicht verpflichtet, alle aufgeführten Werke zu lesen. Sie können sich jedoch aus der Liste die für die Ablegung der Examina erforderlichen Texte zusammenstellen sowie wertvolle Anregungen für eine kontinuierliche studienbegleitende Lektüre erhalten.
Dabei ist es ihnen unbenommen, andere Texte zu wählen, wenn es ihre Interessensgebiete erfordern. Insbesondere im 20. Jahrhundert ist die Liste als vorläufig zu betrachten; hier wird die Eigeninitiative der Studierenden am stärksten zur Geltung kommen. Für die Lyrik sind jeweils exemplarische Titel vorgegeben, die zu ergänzen den Studierenden vorbehalten ist.

Die Liste umfasst nur Primärwerke.
Fast alle relevanten Gedichte und Short Stories finden sich in der Norton Anthology of English Literature, der Oxford Anthology of English Literature, oder der Norton Anthology of Poetry.
Für neuere Lyrik wären außerdem insbesondere zu konsultieren:
Simon Armitage and Robert Crawford, eds. The Penguin Book of Poetry from Britain and Ireland since 1945 (London: Penguin, 1998), oder
Michael Hulse, David Kennedy and David Morley, eds., The New Poetry (Newcastle upon Tyne: Bloodaxe, 1993).
Eine Lyrikanthologie, deren Anschaffung sich für das Studium lohnen würde, wäre z.B. Arnold Löffler und Eberhard Späth, eds., English Poetry: Eine Anthologie für das Studium, UTB 494, 3. Aufl. (Wiesbaden: Quelle & Meyer, 1998).

Wie lässt sich die Leseliste zur Vorbereitung von Prüfungen verwenden?
Generell sollten die für die Prüfungen eingereichten Lektürelisten (siehe Wegweiser) eine angemessene Streuung bezüglich der Genres und Epochen aufweisen.
Für die Prüfungen gelten die in den Meldebögen vorgegebenen Mindestanforderungen (siehe Rubrik "Prüfungen") – eine umfassendere Lektüre ist selbstverständlich ratsam.
