Im Juli 1913 begonnen, während des Krieges durch essayistische Arbeiten, vor allem durch die ›Betrachtungen eines Unpolitischen‹, unterbrochen, konnte der Roman 1924 abgeschlossen und veröffentlicht werden.
In der Textfassung der Großen kommentierten Frankfurter Ausgabe (GKFA), mit Daten zu Leben und Werk.

Frequently, East Germans found that words and ideas which were commonly understood in the GDR were no longer meaningful in the new Federal Republic. In other cases, both states had to learn new words, or attach new meanings to words. One example of this is the word Wende (literally: ‘turn’) to describe the events of 1989. Although this word had been used before 1989, it came to be used only in describing the changes happening in Germany at this time. Similarly, after official and political unification in October 1990, new terms had to be coined to describe the former East and West Germany, for example, die neuen Bundesla¨nder and die alten Bundesla¨nder, respectively.
Many theatre companies were producing plays which they wished to perform to audiences all over the country. But in order to do so, they needed to be understood by a wide variety of dialect speakers. This particular issue led to many discussions regarding the establishment of a standard spoken variety of German. A commission of university professors and theatre representatives was formed, eventually leading to the publication of The German language past and present Theodor Siebs’ Deutsche Bu¨hnensprache in 1898.
To start with the first point made above. It has been argued that German is a sexist language because of the way it treats women in language usage. This relates to the question of whether women are excluded from texts if they are not included in the language (by using masculine forms to refer to men and women). English differs from German as it does not mark articles or nouns for grammatical gender in the way that German does. This means that English texts can be more generic when referring to gender, for example ‘a student’ or ‘a doctor’ can refer to both males and females.
