Perspektiven zur Sozialgeschichte der Literatur: Beiträge zu Theorie und Praxis

Front Cover
Niemeyer, Jan 1, 2007 - German literature - 184 pages

The volume addresses methodological questions raised by a sociological and socio-historical approach to literary history and tests them in ten studies on the theory and practice of the historiography of literature written in German. Jorg Schonert examines problems of genre theory and genre history raised by satire and detective fiction and analyses text corpora by J. H. Campe, J. K. Wezel, H. v. Kleist, B. Auerbach, G. Keller, K. E. Franzos and F. Wedekind. The author sees the book as documenting an important position taken up in the Methods debate conducted since the 1970s. "
