This book describes German literary history up to the unification of Germany in 1990. Contributors, all leading scholars in their field, take a fresh look at the main authors and movements, and also ask what Germans in a given period were actually reading and writing, what they would have seen at the local theatre or found in the local lending library; it includes, for example, discussions of literature in Latin as well as in German, eighteenth-century letters and popular novels, Nazi literature and radio plays, and modern Swiss and Austrian literature. A prominence is given to writing by women. The book is designed for general readers as well as students and scholars: titles and quotations are translated, and there is an extensive bibliography.
• Acclaimed Cambridge History available in paperback • The first history (in any language) of German literature up to and including Reunification and an in-depth English-language history of German literature • Accommodates late twentieth-century ideas about history, narrative and literature, and gives prominence to women writers
