The «Zeitroman» of the Late Weimar Republic

Matijevich, Elke: The «Zeitroman» of the Late Weimar Republic

This study addresses Willi Bredel, Hans Fallada, Irmgard Keun, Erich Kästner, and Ernst von Salomon as paradigmatic examples for different tendencies of the genre. During the turbulent Weimar era, the Zeitroman emerged as a literary genre with sharp social and political criticism as its focus. Morally or ideologically engaged writers across the political spectrum used current events to craft novels that sought to persuade a wide readership of the need to reform German society. How did these novels present the lives of blue-collar workers, the petty bourgeoisie, women, intellectuals, and right-wing activists? How were they received by the press and the public? And why are many locked in the literary history of their period, while others find resonance beyond their own time and culture?
