Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: A collection of essays exploring some of the important new figures in the contemporary German novel and of the themes and preoccupations common to them and their older contemporaries, concluding that many East and West German, Austrian and Swiss writers have in common the problem of recent history and the attempt to establish longer historical perspectives; the progress and significance of the postmodernist stance; the exploration within women's writing of myth and history and the influence of these on the "female" texts on male writers. Detailed discussions of a few key texts which are likely to retain their significance beyond the present period aim to reveal the richness of the literature of the German-speaking world.
