From the cover: “Enlightenment, Romanticism, Realism — such terms are in regular use, however much we might dislike them. Fresh scrutiny of these terms is constantly necessary, particularly in view of their differing significance as applied to various European literatures. This book is therefore not a history of literature in the normal sense but a discussion of the various periods and movements of German literature from the 17th century to the present day in the light of the latest research.”
