1000 Jahre deutsche Literatur is organized by historic periods and includes carefully chosen readings, with notes and vocabulary, beginning with writings in Old High German through Gellert, Lichtenberg, and Lessing. Also included are numerous exercises and thought provoking questions for each chapter and support materials which emphasize the cultural and historical background of each historic period. In tandem with Waltraud Maierhofer's Deutsche Literatur im Kontext 1750-2000, these two volumes provide a modern approach to German literature in its cultural, historical and linguistic context.show more

Review quote

1000 Jahre Deutsche Literatur does a marvelous job of presenting literary texts within their cultural contexts, including an excellent overview of the history of the German Language from Germanic times to the Enlightenment. Professor Clay's writing style is lively and accessible. The accompanying pedagogical exercises reinforce learning of the material, while also affording opportunities for independent thinking and reflection. This newly-revised edition should be a favorite for students and teachers alike. - Dennis Mahoney, University of Vermontshow more
