An anthology of German literature   By: (1854-1919)

Book cover

This anthology of German literature by Calvin Thomas is a comprehensive collection of some of the greatest works from Germany's literary history. From the poetry of Goethe and Schiller to the novels of Thomas Mann and Franz Kafka, this anthology covers a wide range of genres and time periods.

One of the things that stood out to me about this anthology is the depth and breadth of the selections. It includes not only well-known works, but also lesser-known gems that shed light on different aspects of German culture and society. The translations are also excellent, capturing the nuances and beauty of the original texts.

I appreciated the thoughtful introductions to each section, which provided context and background information that enhanced my understanding of the works. Overall, this anthology is a must-have for anyone interested in German literature, offering a rich and diverse selection of texts that showcase the country's literary richness and complexity.

[Transcriber's Note:

This text is intended for those readers who cannot use the "real" (Unicode, UTF 8) version of the file. Some substitutions have had to be made: [uo] = "u" with small superscript "o"; also uppercase [UO] [~e] = "e" with "tilde", representing following "m" or "n" [oe] = "oe" ligature Greek words have been transliterated and shown between marks.

The earlier poems were printed in long lines with a caesura, shown as a gap, at mid line. For this e text, long lines have been broken into two, with the second half indented. Line numbering is explained at the end of the text.

A few typographical errors were corrected. They are listed at the end of the text. Numbers printed as superscripts are shown here in braces: "Vol. 12{2}". Except for footnotes and their tags, and the "unpacking" of [uo], all square brackets [ ] are in the original.]
