The Nobel-laureate novelist and public intellectual Gunter Grass was foremost among German fiction writers and social/political critics from the 1950s until his death in April 2015. Known throughout the world for his many novels, chief among them The Tin Drum (1959), he assumed the role of the conscience of the German nation and arguably held it throughout his life despite controversy, particularly that which arose when he belatedly revealed in 2006 that near the end of the war, as a seventeen year old, he had served briefly in Himmler's Waffen SS, and in 2012 when he published the poem "What Must Be Said," in which he sharply criticized Israel's policy in Palestine. This monograph will be a major contribution to the scholarship on Grass, since it looks at his career as a whole and identifies four phases or stages of his writing in terms of communicative strategy and style. Nicole Thesz is Associate Professor of German at Miami University, Ohio.
