Synopsis

East, West, and Others is the first work to examine the Third World in German literature from World War II to the present. Arlene A. Teraoka investigates how prominent post-World War II East and West German authors have portrayed the Third World. She discusses the persistent stereotypes of race, culture, and sexuality in texts by authors whose careers were shaped by concerns with Third World politics. Those writers include Anna Seghers, Peter Weiss, Hans Magnus Enzensberger, and Heiner Muller; East Germans Claus Hammel and Peter Hacks; and the documentary West German writers Max von der Grun, Gunter Wallraff, and Paul Geiersbach. Teraoka demonstrates the continuing German need to construct a postwar identity freed from the fascist past and the conflicts and cliches that inevitably mar this dream of the self. Whether authors project a champion of humanity who upholds Enlightenment ideals or a fragmented European protagonist paralyzed by guilt, all negotiate between the forces of rationality and prejudice, universality and difference, solidarity and helplessness.
