Cockpit of Ideologies

The Literature and Political History of the Weimar Republic


Anthony Grenville

Contents: Starting with Heimkehrer novels and dramas that reflect Germany's defeat in 1918 and the foundation of the Weimar Republic, this book analyses literary works that mirror the successive stages in the Republic's history. The Great Depression and the rise of Nazism are examined through works by Thomas Mann, Brecht, Fallada, Kästner and others.
