DESCRIPTION

This book considers how and why German authors have used the child's viewpoint to present the Third Reich. Authors as diverse as Günter Grass, Siegfried Lenz, and Christa Wolf have all used this perspective, and this raises the question as to why it is such a popular means of confronting the Third Reich. This study asks whether it is an evasive strategy, a means of gaining new insights into the era, or a means of discovering a new language. This raises issues central to the post-war German aesthetic.
