Quick Overview

"I find this an ideal introductory textbook for students of German literature. The material included provides an excellent overview of German literature since 1750 by embedding it in a cultural-historical context and clearly explaining the literary, cultural, and historical concepts involved. The copious exercises provide opportunities for students to organize their knowledge, engage in textual analysis, and expand their understanding of the interrelationships of literature and culture."
    —Margaret K. Devinney, Director, German Program at Temple University

Together with Gudrun Clay's 1000 Jahre, this book provides a modern approach appropriate for the cultural and historical emphasis that is being taught. The emphasis throughout is on cultural and historical events which bring the selections to life and provide a context for the literature.
