Literature and History

Erhard Schütz, reknowned expert on Weimar literature, has written a review (in German) on two new volumes on the relationship between literature and the history of the 20th century:

Hürter, Johannes; Zarusky, Jürgen (eds.): Epos Zeitgeschichte. Romane des 20. Jahrhunderts in zeithistorischer Sicht

van Laak, Dirk (ed.): Literatur, die Geschichte schrieb

Among others, these books include articles by historians on Jewgenij Samjatin’s Wir (1920) and Hans Fallada’s Bauern, Bonzen und Bomben (1931).
