Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (Book)Researchpeer-review


A major obstacle that certainly contributed to the fact that the dramas of the First World War received so little attention in research is the inadequate bibliographical situation. Because the literary scholar who wants to deal with this topic first of all faces the problem of having to locate texts. In addition to the works of canonical authors such as Ernst Toller, Karl Kraus, Georg Kaiser and Ödön von Horváth, only a few pieces are known.
