FURTHER READING CRITICAL WORKS
During the second half of his life, German-born Erich Maria Remarque
was an American citizen who spent much of his time in Switzerland. His
books were more popular with the public than with critics. Also, he wrote
in German and his books were then translated into English. As a result,
much less literary criticism-in English-exists on Remarque's books than
those of other major American authors. There is no biography of Remarque
for the general reader.
This scholarly book, which uses sources in German and in English, examines Remarque's life and novels in detail. Jacobs, Lewis. The Rise of the American Film. New York: Teachers College, Columbia University Press, 1968. Lewis Milestone's 1930 production of All Quiet on the Western Front is treated as a landmark in early films with sound. Schwarz, Wilhelm J. War and the Mind of Germany. I. Frankfurt, West Germany: Peter Lang, 1975.
An essay in the book compares Remarque's war novel with the work of other German novelists.
