Description

This unit will provide students with an in-depth study of the major writers of German literature from the beginning of the 20th century through to about the end of World War II thereby giving students an appreciation of the variety of themes and narrative modes of that period. During this time, writers were confronted with massive cultural, social and political changes and we will examine how they dealt with these in their works.
