German Literature

German literature encompasses the literary texts originating within Germany proper and written in the German language. This also denotes any literature written in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and to a lesser extent works of the German Diaspora. German literature of the modern period is mostly in Standard German, but there are some currents of literature influenced to a greater or lesser degree by dialects. It has its mark on the destiny of German politics and history, its fragmentation and discontinuity. German literature has experienced three periods of established greatness: the high Middle Ages, the turn of the 18th to the 19th century and the turn of the 19th to the 20th. Modern German literature began in 1750 with the poems of Klopstock, the dramas of Lessing and the novels of Gellert, Wieland and Sophie von La Roche.

German literature begins in the Carolingian period, first in Latin and then in Old High German. The time periods typically used in unfolding German literature are the periods of Medieval German literature, Early modern German literature and modern German literature. The Old High German period was supposed to be in the mid-11th century, though the boundary to Early Middle High German is not precise. The most famous authors and works of the high Middle Ages include Herzog Ernst, Ulrich von Türheim, Heinrich von Freiberg, Rudolf von Ems, Heinrich Frauenlob, Konrad von Würzburg, and Reinmar der Alte. The Baroque period was one of the most fertile times in German literature. Many writers imitated the atrocious experiences of the Thirty Years' War, in poetry and prose. The Age of Enlightenment refers to the 18th century in European philosophy, and is often considered as part of a larger period which also takes account of the Age of Reason. This movement furnished a framework for the American and French Revolutions, as well as the rise of capitalism and the birth of socialism. Sturm und Drang was a Germany literary movement which was developed during the second half of the 18th century. The period is most commonly portrayed as having lasted from 1767 - 1785. It is named after a play by F. M. von Klinger. Classicism refers generally to a high regard for classical ancient times as setting standards for taste which the classicist seeks to follow. Romanticism was an artistic and intellectual movement that originated in late 18th century Western Europe. It stressed strong emotion, imagination, freedom within or even from classical notions of form in art. Naturalism is a movement in theatre and film. In theatre, it developed in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Expressionism is the affinity of an artist to disfigure reality for emotional effect. It is demonstrated in many art forms including painting, literature, film, architecture and music. Dadaism or Dada is a cultural movement after World War I in visual art as well as literature, theatre and graphic design. The movement was a protest against the barbarism of the War and what Dadaists believed was an oppressive intellectual rigidity in both art and everyday society.
