About Digitale Bibliothek Deutscher Klassiker

The Bibliothek deutscher Klassiker, with its carefully selected literary and non-literary texts, is widely regarded throughout the world as the premier collection of German writing.

The Bibliothek deutscher Klassiker series has been published since 1981 and covers the work of more than thirty authors, including early German texts such as Lancelot and Ginover and Wolfram von Eschenbach, editions of important authors such as Herder, Kleist, and Bchner, and the works of philosophers such as Kant, Schleiermacher, and Fichte. Collections of historical, philosophical, theological, political and art history texts add context and background material. All the texts have been newly edited by leading international scholars and are accompanied by extensive commentaries that reflect the most recent research.

With the co-operation and support of the publishers Deutscher Klassiker Verlag Frankfurt am Main, Chadwyck-Healey are delighted to publish the Bibliothek deutscher Klassiker for the first time in electronic form. The Digitale Bibliothek Deutscher Klassiker provides unparalleled access to a great collection of German literature spanning eleven centuries.
