Günter Grass und die Sprachwissenschaft. Bemerkungen zu Grimms Wörtern
Günter Grass and linguistics. Comments on Grimm’s Words. – This paper examines the recent prose book by the Nobel Prize winner G. Grass in the context of his work. Grimm’s Words is a tribute to the linguists, lexicographers and collectors of fairy tales Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, the founders and first editors of the German Dictionary, and to the German language. The life of the Brothers Grimm, the history of the dictionary and the life of Grass are linked together, the book is both novel and biography as well as autobiography. The structure of the book and its linguistic features are considered in detail before it is concluded that the book is suitable as a reading material for Danzig German students.
