Synopsis: This study offers an examination of key autobiographical texts arising from the student movement and the New Women's Movement in the Federal Republic of Germany during the 1960s and 1970s. Existing critical debates about the 'New Subjectivity' of the 1970s, it argues, fail to do justice to the issue of autobiographical writing in German literature after 1968. By contrast, this book makes the case for an interdisciplinary approach to Bernward Vesper's Die Reise, Rolf Dieter Brinkmann's Erkundungen zur Präzisierung des Gefühls, Karin Struck's Klassenliebe, Inga Buhmann's Ich habe mir eine Geschichte geschrieben and Verena Stefan's Häutungen which is able to illuminate these texts both as historical documents and as contributions to the genre of autobiography. The textual analyses at the heart of the study explore the often complex, yet always fascinating relationship between autobiographical practices and the politics of the student and the feminist movements in the Federal Republic.
About the Author: The Author: Andrew Plowman (born 1966) studied German at Jesus College, Cambridge, and has been a Lecturer in German at the University of Liverpool since 1995. His research interests include autobiographical writing and the literature of the Federal Republic of Germany.
