Twenty-five essays by scholars from the UK, Ireland, Germany and Australia explore two aspects of new German-language literature. The first dozen studies focus on the variety and depth of the ‘dialogue’ – in the sense of reciprocal influences – between literature, photography, film, painting, architecture, and music. The remaining essays alight on ‘Life-Writing’ in most of its forms (diaries, memoirs, autobiographies, and autobiographical fiction) and examine its centrality in recent years in German literature, not least because of the shadow which World War Two continues to cast over national life.
