The German bestseller in the late nineteenth century by Charlotte Woodford( )

7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The late nineteenth century was a crucial period for the development of German fiction. Political unification and industrialization were accompanied by the rise of a mass market for German literature, and with it the beginnings of the German bestseller. Offering escape, romance, or adventure, as well as insights into the modern world, nineteenth-century bestsellers often captured the imagination of readers well into the twentieth century and beyond. However, many have been neglected by scholars. This volume offers new readings of literary realism by focusing not on the accepted iontellectual canon but on commercially successful fiction in its material and social contexts. It investigates bestsellers form writers such as Freytag, Dahn, Jensen, Raabe, Viebig, Stifter, Auerbach, Storm, Möllhausen, Marlitt, Suttner, and Thomas Mann. The contributions examine the aesthetic strategies that make the works such a success, and writers' attempts to appeal simultaneously on different levels to different readers. Writers tried to find freedom and be innovative, while also accommodating the expectations of publishers and the marketplace. This volume sheds light on the important effect of the mass market on the writing not just of popular works, but of German prose fiction on all levels

Realism and Romanticism in German Literature / Realismus und Romantik in der deutschsprachigen Literatur( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in German and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

When writers and critics such as Gustav Freytag, Julian Schmidt and Berthold Auerbach constituted the new literary movement called 'Realism' in response to the 1848 revolution and its defeat, 'Romanticism' acted as a critical foil for the new departure. This polemically motivated and historically-anchored terminology has survived in today's orthodox view that 'Realism' and 'Romanticism' mark not just two distinct periods in literary history, but also two radically opposed concepts of literature. Combining theoretical approaches and overviews with a range of case studies, interdisciplinary investigations and comparative enquiries, this volume reassesses German Realism's relationship with Romanticism and sheds new light on the multiple ways in which writers from Stifter and Keller to Raabe and Fontane remember Romanticism, engaging with its problems, themes, motifs and poetics. By re-examining the engagement with Romanticism in the literature and culture of Realism between c. 1840 and 1900, the book challenges existing concepts of periodisation and works towards a more differentiated understanding of the complex dynamics in the field of nineteenth-century 'realisms' and their role in the overarching intellectual trajectories from Romanticism to Modernism
