About this product
- DescriptionThe author of this study analyses five major vels published by Hans Fallada between 1931 and 1947, including bestsellers such as Kleiner Mann - was nun? and comparatively neglected works such as Der Alpdruck. These vels explore significant problems in Weimar, Nazi and post-Nazi society, paying particular attention to the viability of personal values as a response to social problems. The author argues that Fallada's key concept of individual values is much more ambivalent and more mutable than scholars have yet recognised, that it is particularly influenced by the upheavals of 1933 and 1945, and that it is radically redefined in Fallada's last work, Jeder stirbt fuer sich allein. This book offers a close analysis t only of the crisis vels themselves, but also of Fallada's short stories, essays and letters, many of which have remained unpublished, and which illuminate his major works in ways which have t yet been fully appreciated.
