GERM 64.02 Lit of the Modern Period: Pulp Fiction Meets Highbrow Literature: German Writers in the 19th-Century

To be a writer in 19th-century Germany meant to interact with a thriving media market. For the first time, such authors wrote for a mass readership and published in illustrated magazines, where their highbrow literary texts appeared together with pulp fiction and visual images. Reading works by Heine, Fontane, Stifter, and others, this seminar will explore the complex aesthetic strategies devised to respond to this medial challenge, a challenge related to current issues raised by the publication of serious fiction in digital venues today. Conducted in German. Open to all classes. Dist: LIT, WCult: W.
