Internationalistische Weltliteratur: Die Buchgemeinschaft Universum-Bücherei für Alle und Kurt Kläbers Passagiere der III. Klasse

Christoph Schaub

Abstract

Focusing on the book club Universum-Bücherei für Alle and Kurt Kläber’s novel Passagiere der III. Klasse, this article reconstructs attempts by Communist writers and cultural activists to produce an internationalist world literature during the Weimar Republic. In contrast to theories of world literature that often ignore such non-canonical traditions, marginalize social class, and emphasize culture, this article argues that world literature theory needs to theorize the relations between world literature, politics, and social stratification.
