Abstract:

There is a large pool of German novelists in whose oeuvre we may look for works of landmark significance, and at certain periods of its history German fiction is particularly rich. Yet although the novel begins to assert itself in the seventeenth century, we have to wait until the late eightteenth, and Goethe's first major prose work, Werther, to see it truly rise to the level of other genres. The thirteen novels featured in this collection have all proved milestones on the development of the form, and there is heavy prominence given to works by Goethe himself and by Thomas Mann. Through these, as well as those by such figures as Kafka, Hesse and Günter Grass, we can trace the development of the novel to its far more 'self-concious' form, ranging through the social studies of the nineteenth to works which treat a variety of intellectual, psychological and philosophiocal issues in the twentieth. A second volume will cover the landmarks published between 1959 and the present day.
