About this product
- DescriptionMore than 25,000 German-language titles have been published in the United States from the colonial period to the twentieth century. This book gives a fresh look at this rich historical tradition, with essays discussing all genres of this colorful literature, ranging from immigrant letters to experimental German-language poetry by Jewish women, from German-American velists and playwrights to Austrian refugee publishers and a psychological theorist of the movies. German? American? Literature? reintroduces the modern reader to a fascinating subject that has gained new relevance in an age of increased global migrations.
