Abstract:

Examines ambivalent treatments of the Jew in works of German literature by authors who were not dyed-in-the-wool or unalterable antisemites. Gustav Freitag was a liberal, and Wilhelm Raabe conveyed different images of male and female Jews. The fiction of Leopold von Sacher-Masoch, in which Galician Jews were portrayed negatively, contrasted with his professed solidarity with Jews. The fiction of Theodor Fontane reveals his antipathy to Jews, though less obviously than his correspondence. The examination of Thomas Mann focuses on his early antisemitic story "Waelsungenblut".
