Abstract

The important role Stefan George played in German culture of the first half of the 20th century finds an emblematic expression – overlooked so far by academic research – in the textbooks of the time. This essay concentrates on the textbooks for secondary schools published in Germany between 1900 and 1933. The recurring quotes of George’s verses within them can be divided into two groups: While the texts for the intermediate level contain almost exclusively poems celebrating idyllic German landscapes and outstanding examples of human behavior, the texts for the upper level encompass many sociocritical verses. This essay aims to explain the purpose this division intended to pursue.
