In prior centuries British attitudes towards German tradition oscillated among hostility and indifference. For a quick interval of two decades among the 2 international Wars, this trend replaced dramatically, with a flood of German books in translation threatening to engulf the British ebook marketplace and triggering violently emotional reactions within the literary pages of the preferred press. Reviewers of those books are proven right here to have harbored a deep amibivalence towards an alien German tradition. The studies of those years demonstrate a dialectical tug of conflict among the confirmed Hun stereotype of Germany and a twin advanced and contradicting photograph of the redeeming barbarian promising rebirth.
