Abstract

Through the study of the German and English editions of Guenter Grass's "Cat and Mouse" and Christa Wolf's "Patterns of Childhood", this project explores the use of autobiographical fiction as a method to cope with the cultural and personal consequences of Hitler's Germany. With the aid of literary critics, the authors' personal history and an in-depth analysis of the literature itself, the generation that grew up in Hitler Germany is better understood, accepted, and preserved. This project is written primarily in German.
