About the Author:

Peter Demetz is a contributor for Houghton Mifflin Harcourt titles including After The Fires.

From Library Journal:

From its fiery beginnings in war and holocaust, modern German literature became the mediator of memory and radical questioning. This broad but scholarly survey is both knowledgeable and concise regarding crucial influences and origins, such as Group 47. Most valuable is the special attention given such important writers as Heinrich Boll, Gunter Grass, Max Frisch, Peter Handke, Christa Wolf, Gabriele Wohmann, and Peter Weiss, whose recurring themesthe tyranny of the establishment; the dehumanization of industrial society; the search for self-realization; questions of time, being, freedom, and evil; and the abuses, limits, and possibilities of languageare elucidated. A substantial resource for understanding German literature. Carol J. Lichtenberg, Washington State Univ. Lib., Pullman
