VIRTUAL WALLS? : POLITICAL UNIFICATION AND CULTURAL DIFFERENCE IN CONTEMPORARY GERMANY : V. 184 - PRICE: £75
  On October 3, 1990, just a year after the Berlin Wall fell, the German Democratic Republic was absorbed into the Federal Republic of Germany, officially ceasing to exist. What was the GDR and how do we remember it? According to the dominant Western narrative, it was a country that brought neither unity nor justice nor freedom to its citizens. But if so, why does a virtual wall still seem to exist in Germany today between the erstwhile citizens of the GDR and FRG? The GDR very much remains in the public debate, and while political integration is well on its way, the cultural integration of the two former states has proven much more challenging. This volume analyzes the cultural transformation - or lack thereof - that has followed political unification.

NEW GERMAN LITERATURE BOOKS

THE FIRST GERMAN THEATRE : SCHILLER, GOETHE, KLEIST AND BUCHNER IN PERFORMANCE  - PRICE £26.99
  First published in 1990. The book surveys of the development of German theatre from a market sideshow into an important element of cultural life and political expression. It examines Schiller as `theatre poet' at Mannheim, Goethe's work as director of the court theatre at Weimar, and then traces the rapid commercial decline that made it difficult for Kleist and impossible for Buchner to see their plays staged in their own lifetime.

Four representative texts are analysed: Schiller's The Robbers, Goethe's Iphigenia on Tauris, Kleist's The Prince of Homburg, and Buchner's Woyzeck.

Drawing on gender and queer theory,  the essays in this volume rethink conventional ways of conceptualizing female authorship and re-examine the formal, aesthetic, and thematic terms in which "women's literature" has been conceived.  Contributors treat the works of many of contemporary Germany's most significant literary voices, including Hatice Akyun, Sibylle Berg, Thea Dorn, Tanja Duckers, Karen Duve, Jenny Erpenbeck, Julia Franck, Katharina Hacker, Charlotte Roche, Julia Schoch, and Antje Ravic Strubel.

SECRET GERMANY : MYTH IN TWENTIETH-CENTURY GERMAN CULTURE   - PRICE £20.99
 In this book, Furio  Jesi takes up the term  "Secret Germany" in order to trace the contours of that political, artistic, and aesthetic thread as it runs through German literary and artistic culture in the period which, in the 1930s, became absorbed by Nazism as part of its prophecy of a triumphant future. 

Drawing on thinkers like Carl Jung and writers such as Thomas Mann and Rainer Maria Rilke, Jesi reveals a literary genre that was transformed, tragically, into a potent political myth.
