Item description for Four German Stories: Vier Familiengeschichten Fur Unsere Zeit: With Introduction, Exercises, Notes and Glossary (German Edition) by Ruth H. Sanders...
This is a reader for college students of German, introducing them to literature or cultural studies at the advanced level. The short-stories are postwar and contemporary, by German and Austrian writers, and focus on family life. The stories are arranged in order of increasing complexity- in vocabulary and syntax as well as in style, topic and approach. The text includes footnotes for difficult or idiomatic phrases, a glossary for virtually every word found in the stories, and pre- and post- reading discussion questions. This text is designed to foster not just the comprehension of the story, but also the development of literacy in German. Includes: ''Am Rande'' by Monika Helmecke; ''Das Testament'' by Gertrud Fussenegger; ''Gutes Karma Aus Zschopau'' by Doris Dorrie; ''Das Heimweh'' by Hans Leber."
