Literarische Expressionismus Online = German Literary Expressionism Online
VPN

The German Literary Expressionism Online database contains 151 journals, yearbooks, collections and anthologies from the early 20th century in full text. Many of the most important literary figures of the 20th century made their first literary appearances in periodicals. They included Hugo Ball, Johannes R. Becher, Gottfried Benn, Georg Heym, Klabund, Else Lasker-Schüler, Georg Trakl, and Franz Werfel. Authors, philosophers, theologians, politicians, historians, art historians, psychologists, and many others not belonging to the central circle of expressionists, such as Martin Buber, Gerhart Hauptmann, Theodor Heuss, Hugo von Hofmannsthal, Gustav Landauer, Rainer Maria Rilke, and Arthur Schnitzler, also wrote for the new journals. Included in the database are journals with literary aspirations, such as “Der Sturm” and “Die Weissen Blätter,” as well as journals with political objectives, such as “Die Aktion.” The database serves as a source on German literature of the Modern era and can be used for the study of the history of art, theatre, film, dance and music between 1910 and 1930. Materials contained in the database are presented as online facsimiles, with a variety of search possibilities, including full text. A scholarly introduction and short bio-bibliographical articles on the 350 Expressionist authors represented complete the database.
