Ingo Cornils's book argues that writing about 1968 in Germany is no longer about the historical events or the specific objectives of a bygone counterculture, but is instead a moral touchstone, a marker of social group identity meant to keep alive (or at bay) a utopian agenda that continues to fire the imagination.

For the essays in this book cover ground that has already received attention in Ingo R. Stoehr’s German Literature of the Twentieth Century: From Aestheticism to Postmodernism (2001), the final part of the Camden House History of German Literature.

Literary responses include not only thousands of autobiographical and fictional texts written by survivors, but also, more recently, works by writers who are not survivors but nevertheless feel compelled to write about the Holocaust. This book expands the commonly-used definition of second-generation literature, which refers to texts written from the perspective of the children of survivors, to include texts written from the point of view of the children of Nazi perpetrators. With its innovative focus on the literary legacy of both groups, it investigates how second-generation writers employ similar tropes of stigmatization to express their troubled relationships to their parents' histories.

I dedicate this first book of mine printed in America, which is to continue the series of studies in stylistics previously published in Germany-Aufsätze zur romanischen Syntax und Stilistik, Halle (Niemeyer) 1918; Stilstudien, I-II, München (Hueber) 1928; Romanische Stil- und Literaturstudien, I-II, Marburg an der Lahn (Elwert) 1931-to Assistant Professor ANNA GRANVILLE HATCHER who is an outstanding American scholar.

The essays on German and European literature assembled in this volume view literary works in their broader cultural contexts — as, for example, from the vantage point of the history of science, of political life, of patterns of taste in the arts, or as viewed in the framework of broad anthropological issues. Sometimes the most interesting viewpoint has to do with conventions of everyday life. In these essays a literary text poses a puzzling question inviting inquiry; pursuing it, Professor Guthke takes his readers on an expedition into regions of the terres inconnues of human life and thought and sensibilities.The essays include, among others: Poetry in an Age of Science: Albrecht von Haller and the Crisis of the Enlightenment; A Delicate Balance: Lessing and the Jews; The King of the Weimar Republic: Hauptmann's Role in Political Life; In Search of B. Traven, Mystery Man; Last Words: A Convention in Life and Letters; Life from the End: Last Words in Narrative Biography;/ and Last Words in Shakespeare's Plays.
