Edinburgh German Yearbook 1: Cultural Exchange in German Literature

Eleoma Bodammer (Editor), Robert Vilain (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook


The conviction that German culture and the German spirit are triumphantly unique has played a notorious and dangerous role in that country's history. It is nonetheless widely acknowledged that German cultural production has been significantly shaped by its interaction with non-German sources, and that the search for what is unique about Germany and German literature must incorporate the non-German influence.

This volume provides a forum for a wide-ranging investigation into how German literature from the middle ages to the present day reflects and articulates interactions between German and non-German cultures.
