Das Schwierige 19. Jahrhundert : Germanistische Tagung Zum 65. Geburtstag Von Eda Sagarra Im August 1998. Mit Einem Vorwort Von Wolfgang Fruhwald
This volume brings together the proceedings of a symposium to mark the retirement of Eda Sagarra from the Chair of German (founded 1776) at Trinity College Dublin. It addresses the themes of her major research field, the 19th century as an epoch of literary, social and cultural history. The 'difficulties' of cultural memory of an era which - with varying emphases - has been characterized as the century of liberty, of ideologies, of sciences, of historicism or of realism, are examined from a variety of perspectives in the light of postmodern deconstruction of both literature and history.
