Diether Krywalski is an author and editor of literary studies and guides, and a contributor to the Lexikon der Weltliteratur. In recent years he has made a name for himself with his essays on the German-language literary tradition in Bohemia and Moravia dating back over almost 800 years. This volume reproduces a chronologically-ordered selection of texts ranging from high and late medieval writings through fairytales and Biedermeier drama, realist prose and modern narrative tradition, continuing on into the present day. The book brings lesser-known authors back into the spotlight and highlights new aspects of major literary critics, philosophers and authors such as Roman Jakobson, Edmund Husserl, Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach, Rainer Maria Rilke, Robert Musil, Franz Kafka and Peter Härtling. Dieter Krywalski is an expert guide through the rolling landscapes of the Bohemian literary world.
