Erich Maria Remarque Jahrbuch / Yearbook -
Forty years after the death of Erich Maria Remarque, this volume provides a detailed bibliography of international research literature on the author from 1929 to the present day. A survey of research on the life and work of the author has been long overdue. The bibliography is thorough, clearly thematically structured, and an essential tool for for students and anyone researching on or interested in Remarque. An index of persons facilitates the use of the bibliography.
The volume is completed with the first publication of one of Remarque's last texts: "Der Kranke" from 1964. This is an autobiographically motivated, philosophical reflection on sickness, dying and death, and offers a profound, surprising insight into Remarque's outlook on life.
