About this course
Modern Japanese culture has been impacted significantly by German literature and thought, ranging from medieval legends to works of the great writer Goethe, the Grimm brothers, Marx and Nietzsche, and further to Freud and Kafka. German literary works and thought, however, must be understood in the political, social and cultural contexts of individual epochs, since literature and thought cannot remain independent of historical or social backgrounds. It is also important to consider the mutual influences between literature and music, movies, paintings and architecture.
