The Dear Purchase: A Theme in German Modernism
Available From More sellersView all copies of this book
Paperback. 468 pages. Dimensions: 8.3in. x 5.5in. x 1.3in.Completed shortly before Professor Sterns death in 1991, this book studies works by twelve major writers of German modernism, including Thomas Mann, Musil, Brecht and Rilke, in relation to the history of the twentieth century. It explores the theme of the dear purchase, an ideal of moral strenuousness and sacrifice seen as characteristic of Germany after Nietzsche, and reveals the underlying flaw in this notion as a self-justifying value. Finally, it juxtaposes Manns Felix Krull and Kafkas story Josephine as a deliverance from the value-system of the title. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9780521024402
