Summary
This volume of essays examines the perceived rift between the British and German intellectual and cultural traditions before 1914 and how the resultant war of words both reflects and helped determine historical, political, and, ultimately, military events. This vexed symbiosis is traced first through a survey of popular fiction, from alarmist British and German "invasion novels" to the visions of Erskine Childers and Saki and even P.G. Wodehouse; contrastingly, the "mixed-marriage novels" of von Arnim, Spottiswoode, and Wylie are considered. Further topics include D. H. Lawrence's ambivalent relationship with Germany, Carl Sternheim's coded anti-militarism, H. G. Wells's and Kurd Lasswitz's visions of their countries under Martian invasion, Nietzsche as the embodiment of Prussian warmongering, and the rise in Germany of anglophobic, anti-Spencerian evolutionism. Case histories of the positions of German and English academics in regard to the conflict round out the volume. CONTRIBUTORS: IAIN BOYD WHITE, HELENA RAGG-KIRKBY, RHYS WILLIAMS, INGO CORNILS, NICHOLAS MARTIN, GREGORY MOORE, STEFAN MANZ, ANDREAS HUTHER, HOLGER KLEIN. Fred Bridgham is Senior Lecturer in the Department of German at the University of Leeds
