Undergraduate article in 'German Life and Letters'

24 June 2020

Two Bristol students, a current undergraduate and recent PhD, have published articles in German Life and Letters, one of the leading journals in the subject.

Zak Eastop, a final-year student of German and French, has published an article in German Life and Letters, one of the leading journals in the field of modern languages in the UK. Zak's article, 'Adapting Schiller's "Don Karlos": Verdi, Posa and the Problem of the "Familiengemälde"', began life in one of his second-year units, and included a particularly innovative study of how features of Schiller's drama were transferred into Verdi's music. This is a very significant achievement by someone who has not yet graduated.

The same April 2020 issue of German Life and Letters carries an article by Mary Frank on 'Ottokar Domma: A Satirist, but For or Against GDR Socialism?' Mary Frank completed a PhD in Translation in 2018, and her article is a revised version of the essay with which she was runner-up for the prestigious Women in German Studies Postgraduate Prize.

A Bristol double: our congratulations to Mary and to Zak alike!
