W. G. Sebald
Einführung in Leben und Werk
(An Introduction to His Life and Works)
1. Edition 2011
Uwe Schütte provides a detailed analysis of W.G. Sebald' prose works and his life, drawing on previously unknown biographical information. The general introduction critically discusses the misguided reception of Sebald´s writings (e.g. the Sebald cult and his reception as a Holocaust writer) and is aimed at both students and and the general public. Schütte, a former PhD student of Sebald, also examines the often controversial critical writings. The appendix contains a timeline of Sebald´s life and works as well as a useful select bibliography.
