The Devil Next Door

Toward a Literary and Psychological Definition of Human Evil


Author: Vera B. Profit

Rather than theoretical or abstract, above all else, this monograph endeavors to serve as a practical guide, a handbook for helping us navigate a dark terrain. It neither presumes to examine the sources of evil nor suggest radical cures. These pages strive only to continue the process of naming the signs of individual evil that we might recognize these persons before they inflict even more damage. Scott Peck says it best. “If evil were easy to recognize, identify, and manage, there would be no need for this book.” Of course, he was referring to his own pioneering treatise; given the realities of our day, the need remains as great as ever. Vera B. Profit is Professor of German and Comparative Literature, University of Notre Dame. Previous monographs include: Interpretations of Iwan Goll’s late Poetry with a comprehensive and annotated Bibliography of the Writings by and about Iwan Goll, Ein Porträt meiner Selbst: Karl Krolow’s Autobiographical Poems (1945-1958) and Their French Sources, Menschlich: Gespräche mit Karl Krolow. She earned her Ph.D. in Comparative Literature (French and German) at the University of Rochester, NY, and spent two years studying abroad: one at the University of Vienna, the other at the Sorbonne.

This comprehensive guide is an ideal reference work for film specialists and enthusiasts. First published in 1984 but continuously updated ever since, CineGraph is the most authoritative and comprehensive encyclopedia on German-speaking cinema in the German language. This condensed and substantially revised English-language edition makes this important resource available to students and researchers for the first time outside its German context. It offers a representative historical overview through bio-filmographical entries on the main protagonists, from the beginnings to the present day. Included are directors and actors, writers and cameramen, composers and production designers, film theorists and critics, producers and distributors, inventors and manufacturers. An appendix includes short introductory essays on specific periods and movements, such as Early Film, Weimar, Nazi Cinema, DEFA, New German Cinema, and German film since unification, as well as on cinematic developments in Austria and Switzerland. Sections that crossreference names around specific professional groups and themes will prove equally invaluable to researchers.
