HMG307 Drama and Fiction from Realism to Naturalism

Describes the tensions of the Vormärz (1814-1848) and traces the social and political events from the failed revolution in 1848 through the rise of Prussia and the formation of the German Empire in 1871, to the end of the 19th century. The literature of this period, which was influenced and shaped by these events is studied by discussing in depth realists such as Büchner, Hebbel and Fontane and the later naturalist Gerhart Hauptmann.
