This volume of new essays by leading scholars treats a representative sampling of German realist prose from the period 1848 to 1900, the period of its dominance of the German literary landscape. It includes essays on familiar, canonical authors -- StifterContributors: Robert C. Holub, Brent O. Petersen, Lynne Tatlock, Thomas C. Fox, Jeffrey L. Sammons, John Pizer, Hans J. Rindisbacher, Irene S. Di Maio, Kirsten Belgum, Nina Berman, Robert Tobin, Russell A. Berman.

Todd Kontje is Professor of German at the University of California, San Diego.

This outstanding collection of essays on the writing of this period provides an excellent overview of this great age of fiction. The contributors are among the very best of German literary critics [...]. --ChoiceThe volume's contribution in documenting current scholarly trends in a field that, according to Kontje, suffers from a 'bad reputation,' is great: it opens new windows onto neglected areas of consideration. --German Studies ReviewMajor figures of realism are treated - Stifter, Freytag, Raabe and Fontane - but also lesser-known names such as Mühlbach, Louise von Francois, Spielhagen, Auerbach, and even Karl May, author of Winnetou, in connection with German emigration to the United States [...]. --Etudes Germaniques
