History, Imagination, Exile
Edited By Paul Lerner and Frank Stern
General Editor: Ian Wallace
This series focuses on the life and work of the internationally celebrated German writer Lion Feuchtwanger (1884–1958). Of particular interest are topics such as Feuchtwanger’s role as a critic of Weimar Germany and the rise of Nazism, his years of exile in France (1933–40) and in the USA (1940–58), his achievements as a proponent of the historical novel, and his reception both in post-war Germany and in the wider world. Besides offering fresh analyses of major novels such as Jud Süß, Erfolg, and Goya and the often controversial films which some of them inspired, the series presents Feuchtwanger in the context of his times, paying special attention to his years in Southern California and his relationships with other leading cultural figures of the era such as Bertolt Brecht, Charles Chaplin, Thomas Mann, and Arnold Zweig. Volumes in the series include selections of refereed papers from the biennial conferences of the International Feuchtwanger Society as well as specially commissioned monographs.
