The thirteen critical studies assembled in this volume are a selection of the papers delivered at the Institute of Germanic Studies, London, between 1983 and 1985, and represent a range of its scholarly activities. Two papers were part of a colloquium held in November 1984 in association with the German School at Richmond, to commemorate the sudden death of Uwe Johnson at Sheerness in February that year. William Larrett's paper was given at one of the Institute's Friday afternoon seminars, and J.P. Stern's was offered for discussion at its staff and postgraduate discussion group. The remainder were delivered at the Institute's traditional Thursday evening meetings.
