The significant prose works of German-Swiss writers included in this DLB volume appeared between 1914 and the outbreak of World War II. No one writing after the events of Sarajevo and the inevitable outbreak of war in August 1914 wrote as he or she did before the war; nor would they following the complete break with the political past in both parts of Germany in 1945. The focus of this volume's articles is on prose fiction, but also included are figures primarily known as poets or dramatists who happened also to write significant prose fiction works. Perhaps the most striking example is Rainer Maria Rilke, but there are many others, including the poet Else Lakser-Schuler and the dramatist Fritz von Unruh.39 entries include: Ernst Barlach, Bertolt Brecht, Willi Bredel, Hans Fallada (Rudolf Ditzen), Leonhard Frank, Oskar Maria Graf, Ernst Junger Agnes, Miegel Erich, Maria Remarque, Ina Seidel, Fritz von Unruh, Lehmann Wilhel and Carl Zuckmayer.
