Class Details

The first half of the course will focus on the Sturm-und-Drang movement (1770-1785) that launched the literary careers of Goethe and Schiller; the second half will map the lasting influence of the movement’s extremist aesthetic by considering a variety of works by authors, artists and filmmakers of the 19th and 20th centuries. We’ll deal with themes like forbidden love, suicide, crime, war and revolution and with formal tendencies like poetic egotism, social realism, and radical expressionism. We’ll read plays, poems, manifestos and stories by Goethe, Klinger and Schiller, and then move on to texts by Büchner, Nietzsche, Hauptmann, Wedekind, Kafka and Benn, paintings by Marc, Schmidt-Rottluff, Lohse-Wächtler and Kirchner, and films by Murnau, Lang and Herzog. All materials in German for those who take the course as GERM 310T; all materials in English for those who take it as COMP 310T.
