But the history of GDR literature is in essence that of a process in which the limits of the permissible were continually being challenged and enlarged.
Innovative literature continued to be produced, notably Christoph Hein’s laconic chronicles of GDR life, the feminist novels of Irmtraud Morgner, or the vibrant poetry of the anarchic counter-culture centred upon the East Berlin district of Prenzlauer Berg.
In the ensuing debate the process of revision was extended to West German literature, with the suggestion that the works of such as Böll had been revered more for their moral posture than their literary quality, the corollary being that German writers should now concern themselves with aesthetics rather than politics.

The increasing Romantic tendency of German literature, as expressed, for example, in some of the later writings of Goethe, became dominant in 1798, with the first issue of the journal Das Athenäum, edited by three friends, the writer Ludwig Tieck and the critics August Wilhelm von Schlegel and Friedrich von Schlegel.
Romanticism in the literature of Germany, as in that of other countries, resulted from a fusion of political, philosophical, and artistic elements.
And not the least of Romanticism’s contributions to German literature were the translations by Schlegel of 17 of Shakespeare’s plays, in superb renderings that have become part of Germany’s own literary heritage.

 §17. Edwin Percy Whipple. XIII. Later Essayists. Vol. 17. Later National Literature, Part II. The Cambridge ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Mabie was a voluminous writer on literary topics, but two keener students of literature, among the American writers in the second half of the nineteenth century, were Edwin Percy Whipple (1819–86) and Edmund Clarence Stedman (1833–1908).
Indeed, it was Whipple’s brilliant article on Macaulay, written in 1843, that made its author known to the literary world of Boston, where Whipple, a young man of twenty-four, was then employed in the brokerage business; and Macaulay’s style is reflected in much of the earlier work of his American admirer.
In the lectures and essays contained in the volumes entitled Literature and Life (1871) and Character and Characteristic Men (1877) Whipple continued to reveal that really keen penetration into the strata of values and that ready entrance into the temperament of his subject which had been shown in his earlier appraisals of men and books.

Literature, the old territory; but within it, a shift from the close reading of individual texts to the construction of abstract models.
The models are drawn from three disciplines—quantitative history, geography and evolutionary theory: graphs, maps and trees—with which literary criticism has had little or no interaction; but which have many things to teach us, and may change the way we work.
[13] A first look at French literature from the seventeenth to the nineteenth century suggests that most of its narrative genres have a similar 30-year span: pastoral and heroic novels, the nouvelle historique, romans galants and contes philosophiques, sentimental novels, the Bildungsroman, the roman gai, the two main phases (‘heroic’ and ‘sentimental’) of the roman-feuilleton.
