Random Destinations by Lilian R. Furst
Book DescriptionRandom Destinations examines how novels and short stories portray those who managed to escape from Central Europe in the 1930s following the rise of Nazism. They faced many concrete and psychological problems at their random destinations: language acquisition, adjustment to different moves, fitting into the community, coming to terms with having been rejected by their homeland, the conflict between the desire to remember and/or forget their past, and, above all, the need to reshape their identities. Their personal struggles are contextualized within their historical situation, both global and specific to their new locale. The book argues that fiction, by taking ordinary escapees' difficulties into account, paradoxically offers a more subtle and true picture than sociological studies, that have tended to foreground the successes of a few outstanding individuals.

European Romanticism, Hardback (April 2016)» View all books by Lilian R. Furst
First published in 1980. This collection of carefully selected extracts from primary texts seeks to show what the Romantics themselves held Romanticism to be. The movement is thus defined in terms of the writers own views of their art both in general principle and in practical terms. This title will be of interest to students of literature. "
