    german expressionism themes Themes As Expressionism evolved from just after the turn of the century through the early s, a number of crucial themes and genres came prominently to the fore, many of which reflect deeply humanistic concerns and an ambivalent attitude toward modernity. Modern artists in Germany and Austria frequently embraced literary motifs in their works by illustrating texts (which they sometimes wrote themselves) or by making series or portfolios of prints in which an extended narrative could be developed.

      This original and attractive book explores the forces that shaped German Expressionism in the years before the First World War. Jill Lloyd discusses the politics of the movement, the various indigenous political currents that influenced it, and in particular, the new and compelling appeal of the primitive, an appeal that was greatly enhanced by Germany’s colonial aspirations and adventures. The writer of the Batman comic books, Alan Moore, likened Gotham City to the sets of The Cabinet of Dr. Callgarl. tors Themes of the German expressionist period were commonly ones of madness, insanity, betrayal and intellectual topics; differing from the more simplistic action and romance themes often seen in films of that time.
