Hermann Boeschenstein, born in Stein am Rhein, Switzerland in 1900, did his doctorate in Rostock under Emil Utziz and came to Canada in the 1920's, first as a tourist and then as a permanent immigrant. He spent over fifty years in Canada as a teacher and scholar, becoming Head of the University of Toronto's Department of German and one of Canada's leading Germanists. Among his many publications on German Literature his two-volume Deutsche Gefuehlskultur (1954 and 1966) remains an unique attempt to chart the development of feeling as expressed in German Literature since the Enlightenment. This present volume gathers together his essays in English on German Literature which demonstrate his life-long endeavour to seek out and promote those humanistic values that are embodied in great literature.
