This volume analyses the strategies of the recipient links in German-language novels before 1600 during the transition from manuscript to print and from verse to prose. It elaborates upon the interplay between the cognitive and emotional incentives of the texts and their poetry of effect based thereupon. The aim of this work is to elucidate the prehistory of the ‘novel’ genus, which stems from both medieval and from ancient sources. It was later revealed that novels between the 14th and 16th Century anticipate central elements of modern theoretical and practical discourse, and that this genus cannot merely be understood as a “modern” phenomenon – its origins lie in pre-Baroque times.
