Edited by W.D. Robson-Scott. Published 1973. ISBN: 9780854570515.
This volume consists of a selection of papers given between November 1969 and May 1972. It is a belated sequel to Essays in German Literature edited by Frederick Norman ('Publications of the Institute of Germanic Studies', volume 7) but differs from its predecessor in two respects: these papers were all presented at the Institute of Germanic Studies London and the contents of the volume are not confined specifically to German literature.
