A Glimpse into the German Avant-Garde Narrative Literature

Yang Jin

The “Classic Avant-garde” refers to the literary and artistic streams from 1910s to 1930s, from which the “Neo-Avant-garde” derived during the first three decades in the postwar era. This thesis focuses on these two heydays of the avant-garde literature in the 20th century and summarizes conspicuous avant-garde phenomena around the two periods, in order to probe into the avant-garde features, context and development of German narrative literature and outline a research method of the avant-garde literature.
