Abstract

This volume, edited in honour of Professor Jeffrey L. Sammons of Yale University on the occasion of his retirement, presents a series of incisive essays on German-Jewish literary and cultural history from the Enlightenment until the rise of Nazism. Key Jewish figures, including Heinrich Heine, Ludwig Böouml;rne, Rahel Varnhagen, Berthold Auerbach, Arthur Schnitzler, Franz Kafka, and Jacob Wassermann, are considered in excitingly new scholarly frameworks. Also German writers and personalities, like G. E. Lessing, Goethe, Grillparzer, Jean Paul, Julius Langbehn, Houston Stewart Chamberlain and many more, are included in diverse discussions of German-Jewish literary and cultural history of this period.
