Download Dictionary of Literary Biography: Nineteenth-Century German Writers 1841-1900 epub
by Siegfried Mews,James Hardin
This DLB volumes coverage begins during a period when two contrasting political tendencies had major influence over German authors and the literature they produced-the conservative Biedermeier, on the one hand, and the liberal Junges Deutschland (Young Germany) and Vormarz (Pre-March), on the other. The Beidermeier writers emphasized middle-class values and virtues such as family, home and community. The other two groups voiced controversial opinions on topical issues of the day. The volume also includes coverage of the witers who represented the switch to realism, the style that dominated the second half of nineteenth century German literature.
