Realism and Reality: German Prose, 1848-1898
GRST 363
Fall 2011 not offered

German realism developed later and assumed more modernist forms than similar movements in England and France. The focus will be on the relationship between the progressive thematics of important literary texts and the subtle formal experiments created to express them. Themes to be explored include the "Jewish question," sexuality and society, and the Prussian rise to power. The major authors to be read are Fontane, Raabe, Keller, Saar, and Stiftev.
