Modern Austrian Writing

A Study Guide for Austrian Literature 1945-1990


Caroline Markolin

Modern Austrian Writing is intended to familiarize the English-speaking literary world with the character of Austrian literature since 1945. A comprehensive introduction analyzes the literary discourse of modern Austrian writing within its political and sociocultural context. The history of motifs, themes, and techniques that permeate the distinctive course of contemporary Austrian literature are represented by a carefully selected compilation of texts (in the German original).
