One of the most influential German-language writers of the late twentieth century, Max Frisch (1911-1991) not only has canonical status in Europe, but has also been well received in the English-speaking world. English translations of his works are available in multiple recent editions. Frisch was a recipient of both the Büchner Award (1958), and the Peace Prize of the German Book Trade (1976); his body of work explores questions of identity, alienation, and ethics in modern society. He is best known for the plays Andorra (1961), a seminal drama that examines indifference and mass psychology in the context of the Shoah and continues to be produced by theaters around the world, and Biedermann und die Brandstifter (1958), another worldwide success and one of the most frequently used texts in advanced undergraduate German courses in the United States, as well as for his novels Stiller (1954), Homo Faber (1957), and Mein Name sei Gantenbein (1964). Yet Frisch has only recently begun to receive the sustained scholarly attention he deserves: neither a comprehensive introductory volume to nor a collaborative handbook on the works of Frisch is available in English, a situation that this volume redresses.

Pizer, Beatrice Sandberg, Caroline Schaumann, Frank Schaumann, Walter Schmitz, Margit Unser, Daniel de Vin, Ruth Vogel-Klein, Paul A. Youngman.

Assistant professor of German, University of TenneseeReview:
This companion volume will prove rewarding for students and scholars of Frisch's work and for those familiar with Frisch's ?ction and non-?ction. (It) provides the student and scholar with fresh insights, new critical approaches, and an overview of the secondary literature. MONATSHEFTE Given the canonical status enjoyed by Max Frisch . . . , this volume has been a long time coming. It enhances in particular the relatively scant English-speaking secondary literature on Frisch. . . . The volume as a whole offers the reader a well-rounded picture of Frisch's works, their literary context and in?uences, and thematic affinities with the works of other writers. . . . With some particularly discerning contributions, the volume is an important and informative contribution to Frisch studies in English. . . . (E)ither in hardback or as an e-book, it is a handsome Companion and an essential library acquisition. MODERN LANGUAGE REVIEW (Siobhán Donovan) This is a true companion to the works of Max Frisch . . ., not, as some "companions" are, a collection of loosely connected conference papers assembled as an afterthought. There are informative chapters on all the genres Frisch worked in . . . . Frisch's speeches and essays are (also) discussed. . . . Highly recommended. CHOICE
