Book Information

   

Title: Sprache, Literatur und nationale Identität [Language, Literature, and National Identity: Debates on the Universal and the Particular in France and Germany]
Subtitle: Die Debatten über das Universelle und das Partikuläre in Frankreich und Deutschland
Written By: Joseph Jurt
URL: http://www.degruyter.com/view/product/248553?format=G
Series Title: De Gruyter mimesis 58
Description:

German and French concepts of nation were often defined antithetically– through an idealized contrast between the “nation state” and the “cultural nation.” This study undertakes a political, linguistic, and literary historical reconstruction of the significance of language and literature in the construction of national identity since the early modern period, revealing that this process was far more complex than previously thought.
