The German Panoramic Novel of the 19th Century


Gerhard Friesen

Comparative presentation of 19th century «panoramic novels» by Sealsfield, Gutzkow and Oppermann and their influence on their successors. «Panoramic» as a common denominator for modern novels of broad scope whose literary relationship has not been evident up to now. The analysis of content, technique of narration and critical perception of several novels disproves the contention of their shapelessness.
