Geschichte der Deutschen Literatur

Geschichte der deutschen Literatur, Manfred Mai ★★★
Manfred Mai is a children’s author and writes about the 8th-grade level, so is quite easy for me to read. The other text of his that I have read was the History of Germany and was quite enjoyable. This was easy to read when Mai was writing, but he includes numerous excerpts, of which multiple writing styles were employed, proving to be a serious challenge to my ability to comprehend. He also spends a little too much time with modern authors—I would have preferred more attention to the classic German literature. All in all, the book was informative, and a decent survey of the breadth of literature in the German tongue.
