    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    Karsten Lichau explores the strains and breaks in Picard’s early works (1914–1933). The focus is on a literary trope that was both controversial and illuminative: the human countenance. This study combines close textual readings with contextualization in cultural history, opening new perspectives on Picard’s contribution to the literary world of the Weimar period.
