„Neider überall zwingen uns zu gerechter Verteidigung“
Legitimisation and De-Legitimisation of World War I in German Dramatic Literature
Von Andreas Dorrer
This allows the analysis of the Heimkehrerdramen of Toller, Brecht, and Horváth to focus on the representation of contemporary narratives that have so far been overlooked and embeds these plays in the context in which they were created. Previously, this was only the case for Karl Kraus’s Die letzten Tage der Menschheit, which is also interpreted by the author in a newly established intertextual relationship with early WWI dramas. The approach this book takes not only provides new insights into the WWI drama between 1914 and the end of the Weimar Republic, but also new points of departure for research in a number of literary and cultural studies fields.
