  CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: German Literature
Literature as an art suffered by being pressed into the service of religious controversy; it became polemic or didactic, and its prevailing form was prose.
Its effect on the German language was enormous; the dialect in which it is written, a Middle German dialect used in the chancery of Upper Saxony, became gradually the norm for both Protestant and Catholic writers, and is thus the basis of the modern literary German.
Literature was devoid of originality and substance; the formal side absorbed the chief attention of the writers.

 The intellectual climate before 1848 (from French literature) --¬† Encyclop√¶dia Britannica
The counterrevolutionary era of the early 19th century saw a renewal of interest in religion, ranging from the sentimental religiosity of Chateaubriand to the traditionalist and antidemocratic theology of Louis-Gabriel-Ambroise, vicomte de Bonald, and Joseph de Maistre, but 18th-century sensualism continued and was developed by the Idéologues.

 Romanticism and Vormärz, 1800-1848
German literature from 1800 to 1848 is marked by a number of different aesthetic, poetic, and political ideologies, and resists attempts at easy classification.
After the failed revolutions of 1848, much of the literary radical spirit disappeared, and although individual authors continued to uphold the autonomous critical stance in their writings, much of the Biedermeier period is characterized by a withdrawal into the ordered harmony of hearth and home.
By 1848, the unsuccessful revolutions throughout the German realm produced a sense of resignation for many, and a withdrawn, idyllic literature became characteristic for the period: Stifter and other Biedermeier novelists, for example, turned to a gentle but firm order to overcome the chaos of the revolutionary years.

At the outset of his 18th Brumaire of Louis Bonaparte, Marx famously writes of the 1848 Revolution: “Hegel remarks somewhere that all facts and personages of great importance in world history occur, as it were, twice.
He forgot to add: the first time as tragedy, the second as farce.” This perception of the 1848 Revolution as, if not exactly a “farce,” at least a degraded “copy” or “translation” of the great model of 1789, is shared by any number of 19th-century representations of the Second Republic (e.g.
This course, jointly taught by a historian and a literary scholar, proposes to explore, among other things, just what it might mean to call a revolution either a form of repetition or a mode of radical inception.

Chicano literature can be defined as “the literature written since 1848 by Americans of Mexican descent or Mexicans in the USA who write about the Mexican-American experience.” (1) Chicano literature is in a constant state of flux because it draws from the people living here and the migration of others across the border.
