Recht und Kriminalität in literarischen Brechungen
[Law and Literature through the Prism of Literature]
Series:Juristische Zeitgeschichte / Abteilung 6 45
Aims and Scope
This work compiles twelve essays on the complex relationship between the law and literature as viewed from each discipline. It reveals a profound transformation in the relationship of authors to the state and society over the course of the 20th century. Modern literature reflects this change in conflicted portrayals of major juridical issues. These conflicts are also apparent in texts by important writers from earlier periods.
