Autorentext

Peter C. Merrill is professor emeritus of languages and linguistics at Florida Atlantic University. A native of Chicago, he has written extensively on German-American artistic and literary culture. He is the author of "German-American Artists in Early Milwaukee," also published by the Max Kade Institute for German American Studies and distributed by the University of Wisconsin Press, and of "German-American Painters in Wisconsin."



Klappentext

Beginning in the mid-nineteenth century and continuing well into the twentieth century, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, was home to a remarkably vibrant and complex German-language intellectual scene. Peter C. Merrill documents the contributions of Milwaukee's most notable German-speaking writers and their works, including plays and operettas, prose, poetry, serial novels, and Feuilleton contributions. In these essays, Merill discusses these writers and the cultural context in which they worked. He emphasizes in particular the important German-language theaters of Milwaukee, tracing their history up to the renovation of the magnificent Pabst Theater. Merrill concludes with an overview of German-American urban culture in the city.
