Der Neue Merkur Collection

Identifier: AR 7141/MF 751

The literary and political journal Der neue Merkur appeared in Germany between 1914 and 1925. This magazine is typical of Weimar Germany, whose literary landscape was partially formed by literary and intellectual magazines. The authors of Der neue Merkur were a small but select group, who wrote more for prestige reason rather than pay. The journal was addressed to an intellectual elite and it had an immense appeal to Europe's most famous authors and public figures. The Neue Merkur Collection is based upon the magazine's correspondence letters from 1919 to 1925. A sparkling group of steady contributors, including Europe's most prominent writers and thinkers, were writing for the journal. Their letters have been collected here. Among them were Thomas and Heinrich Mann, Bertold Brecht, Jakob Wassermann, Alfred Doeblin, Max Picard, André Gide and Martin Buber.
