From the Back Cover:

This Companion to German Literature presents, in animmensely readable yet profoundly scholarly account, the history ofGerman literature from the Reformation and Renaissance to the latetwentieth century, in the wider context of Germanic culture, overthe whole German-speaking area of Europe.Ninegenerically-structured narrative chapters combine a bold synthesisof long-term trends, perennial themes, and characteristics ofGerman literature, from the invention of printing to the computer.Focusing on the perspective of writers and readers in their owntime and place, the Companion conveys the "feel" of aparticular period and the preoccupations of the public to whichwriters addressed their plays, novels, and poems. Systematicattention is paid to the rich but traditionally neglectedcontribution made by women writers throughout the period. Anextensive alphabetically ordered biographical index to authorsdiscussed and referred to provides an invaluable, easy-referencesupplement.

Skrine and Sagarra pay critical attention to the variousdiscontinuities of literature in German while remainingstimulatingly alive to the underlying continuities, exemplified bythemes and traditions ranging from Faust and Arminius to folkpoetry, from hymns to humour. Their book represents a landmark inthe study and exposition of German literary and culturalhistory.
