Ästhetik und Ideologie 1945
Aesthetics and Ideology after 1945: Transformation and Continuity in the Poetological Paradigms of German-Language Authors

Wandlung oder Kontinuität poetologischer Paradigmen deutschsprachiger Schriftsteller

Edited by: Detlef Haberland
For some authors, the "new beginning" after 1945 did not represent a definitive break with the past, in terms of poetology, aesthetics, and the substance of their work. This volume traces different writers’ responses to this moment of upheaval, examining authors who were rooted and exerted influence in Western and Eastern Europe. Focusing on this threshold moment furnishes a rich picture of a complex literary situation.
Audience: Literary scholars, German scholars, historians
