Theodor Storm : The Writer as Democratic Humanitarian, Hardback Book

Theodor Storm : The Writer as Democratic Humanitarian Hardback


A work which discusses Storm's significance and artistic stature as a champion of democratic humanitarian traditions and aspirations in 19th century Germany.

It highlights his critique of Christianity, his vision of capitalism and his analysis of class relationships.

The study contends that his literary form, techniques and strategies were shaped by the need to respond to specific socio-political constraints and prejudices of publishers, editors and readers.

The book advocates new approaches to Storm's work and uses many unpublished primary materials.
