This book provides a cursory overview of the scope and importance of German literature in the Czech lands.
The Czech story of German literature begins around the middle of the 13th century, at the Court on the latterday Přemyslid dynasty, but its main focus is on the literary output of the 19th and 20th centuries, more approachable in terms of genre and style. It presents the written culture of the German ethnic group, which has been marginalized from a Czech language perspective, albeit its quality can compare with the domestic literary output of the time.
