The German Bestseller in the Late Nineteenth Century

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationBook/Film/Article review


This edited volume continues a trend in German literary studies which takes a broader look at Germany’s literary market in the nineteenth century. What began decades ago with scholarly interest in German women’s literature has now developed into a much broader engagement with other forms of writing that have similarly been excluded from the German literary canon. These works, formerly dismissed as Trivialliteratur , are now at the center of new and exciting scholarship that investigates the commercial aspects of literature. In the last few years, scholars such as Lynne Tatlock, Bren t Peterson, Kit Belgum, and Jennifer Redman have been providing a deeper understanding and a more comprehensive picture of the German literary scene in the nineteenth century.
