Donald G. Daviau - Major Figures of Austrian Literature: The Interwar Years 1918-1938
"Edited and Introduced by Donald G. Daviau
MAJOR FIGURES OF AUSTRIAN LITERATURE: The purpose of this projected seven-volume series is to help make the major figures of Austrian literature from 1800 to the present accessible to an English-speaking audience. The introductions provide an overview of the cultural and political background of the age to furnish a broader context for the individual contributions. Bibliographies of primary and secondary texts enhance the value of the volumes as reference works.
This volume covers the turbulent period between the two world wars. Despite the hardships endured by a country recovering from a severe war, and despite the prominence of politics, literature flourished to a degree that, surprisingly perhaps, makes this era one of the richest periods in Austrian literary history.
Contents: The Brenner, Enrica von Handel Mazzetti, Oedoen von Horvath, Franz Kafka, Theodor Kramer, Max Mell, Gustav Meyrink, Franz Nabl, Leo Perutz, The Prague Circle, Karl Schoenherr, Jura Soyfer, Georg Trakl, Ernst Weiss, Stefan Zweig."
