The purpose of this examination of these three non-fictional works is to provide an English-language supplement to extant criticism of the books and to explain their function within Hildesheimer's oeuvre as modifications and extensions of his literary concerns. The three books analyzed include Mozart, Marbot, Mitteilungen an Max uber den Stand der Dinge und anderes (the "Maxtext"). These three books may be regarded as a culmination of the author's intellectual interest in the arts, for each offers opinions on one art form: Mozartómusic, Marbotóvisual art, and the "Maxtext"ó literary art. German newspaper and journal articles are used in assessing the writer's life and work. Intended for students of comparative literature and German.
