British writers of the Romantic Period were popular in Germany throughout the nineteenth century, and translations of Scott, Burns, Moore, Hemans, and Byron (among others) became widespread. This study analyses the reception of William Wordsworth's poetry in 19th century Germany in relation to other romantic poets. Research into Anglo-German cultural relations has tended to see Wordsworth as of little or no interest to Germany but new research shows that Wordsworth was clearly of interest to German poets, translators and readers and that there was significantly more knowledge of and respect for Wordsworth's poetry, and interest in his ideas and beliefs, than has previously been recognised. Williams focuses particularly on the work of Friedrich Jacobsen, Ferdinand Freligrath and Marie Gothein, who span the early, middle, and late years of the century respectively and establishes the wider presence of many others translating, anthologising and commenting on Wordsworth poetry and beliefs.
This publication describes progress in the flame retardancy of natural and synthetic fibres/fabrics. Such progress evolves from traditional approaches (back-coating methods), current chemical solutions (P-, N-, S-, B-based flame retardants) to novel contemporary strategies (deposition and/or assembly of architectures, plasma treatments, sol-gel processes, and so on). More specifically, the fundamental aspects and chemistry of flame-retardant textile technologies (including back-coating process) and the obtained improvements are reviewed thoroughly, taking into account the detrimental environmental effects due to the use of halogen-based additives such as bromine derivatives. Then, an overview of the chemical development of flame retardant strategies based on halogen-free compounds is summarised. The third part of this book is devoted to the description of contemporary innovatory solutions based on nanotechnology. In detail, the surface deposition of coatings having a different chemical structure is highlighted. To this aim, the effect of (nano)architectures derived from (nano)particle adsorption, plasma deposition/grafting, layer-by-layer assembly, and sol-gel treatments on fibres/fabrics are discussed thoroughly.
