A collection of 96 representative modern writings, all in German. Early chapters look at the literary programs of individual trend- setting writers, juxtaposed with traditional texts. Remaining chapters are arranged in sections on themes such as Bible and myth, war and fascism, and "Regen." An introduction in English analyzes the literary discourse of modern Austrian writing within its political and sociocultural context. No index. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
