W.G. Sebald by J.J. Long

Book Description

International scholars offer interdisciplinary perspectives on W.G. Sebald's work, providing a thorough assessment of his achievement. The text focuses on the key areas of travel, intertextuality, nature, and memory. Introductory chapters situate Sebald's work within the European literary tradition and within contemporary critical discourse. Individual chapters then draw on approaches from cultural and literary studies, including ecocriticism, trauma theory, and text-image studies. A comprehensive bibliography of primary and secondary sources rounds off the volume, which should satisfy a growing need for a high-quality and up-to-date guide to Sebald's work.
