Product Description

THE ERA OF GERMAN EXPRESSIONISM is the most comprehensive work on the subject, edited by the internationally known scholar. Its paperback publication comes at a time when Neo-Expressionism -which has its roots in German Expressionism -is at the forefront of the contemporary art world.

Like most movements in the arts, Expressionism in Germany, roughly coinciding with the Surrealist movement in France, was as much an atmosphere and a sensibility as a precise program. It was an eruption of creative energy which radically changed the course of world art and literature; at the same time it sought to understand the new industrialism and the mythic and real significance of America as a "New World."

THE ERA OF GERMAN EXPRESSIONSIM incoporates the notes, letters, documents, and commentaries which, together, delineate this fascinating era. Part of this record stems directly from the period; other writings are retrospective, written by survivors. Writers, artists, publishers, men and women of the theater... they are all here in these pages. This volume contains a penetrating commentary on the text as well as a comprehensive bibliography and will serve as an indispensable guide to the movement and a moment.
