- The purpose of this research is to study the estrangement
that has occurred after the national division(1945) between
the East & West German literary thought and to investigate
its inner reality.
After the war ended in defeat in 1945, Germany was
devided into the liberal democratic West and the communist
East according to their conflicting ideologies， as in the Korean
Peninsula. Germans have had to suffer consequences of the
antagonism between the two ideologies for forty years until
the fall of the Berlin Wall and the reunification in 1990.
The reunification, however, was followed by a period of
confusion. the aftermath of bitter experiences of the past. In
many areas. one sees conflict. contradiction and discomfort.
not only in politics, economy and society but a1so in other
intangible aspects of life - culture. education. home and work.
