Marcel  Reich-Ranicki, Thomas  Anz  (Editor) - My History of German Literature


Marcel Reich-Ranicki on the works of German literature that for him are the most important ones

All his life Marcel Reich Ranicki promoted the cause of German literature and was never afraid of making a very wilful choice of, in his view, the most important authors and their works. For "not having a canon", thus his conviction, "would mean a relapse into barbarism".

Here, for the first time, is a comprehensive collection of the most important and best essays of this passionate critic. It has been arranged in such a way as to impart a picture as provocative as it is inspirational of the history of German literature he found in his home country, from the minnelied of the Middle Ages to the great novels of the present day. This volume, edited by Thomas Anz, who for many years was one of Reich-Ranicki's associates and is an authority on his works, shows new and surprising ways of searching for literature that is so intelligent and gripping and beautiful that you can love it all your life.

•His bestselling autobiography My Life has sold 1.5 million copies and been translated into 20 languages
