The discourse of Heimat, meaning homeland or roots, has been a medium of debate on German identity between region and nation for at least a century. This study explores the theme of German identity between locality and nation in literature and film from the late nineteenth century through to the present, locating key novels and films in a wider cultural context of great significance for an understanding of German history.

About the Author:


Elizabeth Boa is Professor of German, University of Nottingham and author of Kafka: Gender, Class, Race in the Letters and Fictions (OUP, 1996)

Rachel Palfreyman is Professor of German, University of Nottingham

Review:

What this study achieves, above all else, is to underscore the constant yearning of the German psyche for a potent and cohesive identity, compelling us to ponder not only the cultural accomplishments this has inspired, but also the afflictions it has, in no small part, brought upon the nation * Forum for Modern Language Studies * Boa and Palfreyman supply a rich and varied fare ... handsomely produced, with good illustrations. * Modern Language Review *

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2000. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. The discourse of Heimat, meaning homeland or roots, has been a medium of debate on German identity between region and nation for at least a century. Four phases parallel Germany's discontinuous history: Heimat literature as a response to modernization and to regional tensions before the First World War; the inter-war period when Heimat divided into racist ideology, left-wing opposition, and inner resistance to the Third Reich; a post-war dialectic between escapist1950s Heimat films and right-wing claims to the lost lands in the East to which anti-Heimat theatre and films in the 1960s and 1970s were a response, with the urban Heimat in GDR films adding a socialist twist; regionalism and green politics in the 1980s and German identity beyond Cold War divisions. Akey point of reference in current debates on German history, Heimat looks likely to continue in postmodern and multicultural mode. Seller Inventory # AAV9780198159230
