This course takes us through the German cultural periods of Storm and Stress and Romanticism to Realism and Expressionism ending with World War One. Via literature, poetry, theatre, and art, we will explore how the socio-political reality and historic events shaped the lives and artistic expressions of the younger generations during those often tumultuous but always intense periods. In the big picture, this course will help us better understand how especially young people have helped shape history through their proclivity of trying to find a place for themselves in life and by doing so change the direction of the course of history itself.
