The Volksstueck Tradition|
Spring 2010 not offered
Stylistic and thematic study of the 19th- and 20th-century Austrian and German genre of the VOLKSSTUECK, or popular play. Topics that will receive particular attention: the problematic concept of the Volk, the authors' use of dialect or synthetic dialect, the phenomenon of inarticulateness, shifts in the understanding of social class, urban vs. rural settings, and the increasing influence of the mass media on speech and thought.
