German Literature: A Very Short Introduction

Nicholas Boyle

Very Short Introductions

  • Looks at the great German writers, from Luther, Goethe, Schiller, and Marx, to Thomas Mann, Bertolt Brecht, and Gunter Grass
  • Reveals the links between a nation and its literature: showing how to ask what German literature is like is to ask what Germany itself is like
  • Examines the literary and philosophical responses of German writers to social, political, and economic change, and seeks out the links between Germany's intellectual traditions and its often violent and tragic history
