The University of Dayton Review has long had a commitment to the work of Heinrich Böll. In 1973, the year after Böll received the Nobel Prize for Literature, the Review published its first special issue on his work (Fall, Vol. 10, No. 2). This initial special issue was followed by four more, Winter 1974 (Vol. 11, No. 2), Spring 1976 (Vol. 12, No. 2), Winter 1976 (Vol. 13, No. I), and this current issue of Summer 1985. In each case, these issues had their origin in a special session on Böll's work at the annual meeting of the Modern Language Association of America. The articles in this issue read originally in New York in December of 1983 are those by Erhard Friedrichsmeyer, Charlotte Ghurye, Henry Glade, and Eckhard Kuhn-Osius. The remaining articles were especially solicited from well-known Böll scholars for this publication.


The news of Heinrich Boll's death (July 16, 1985) came just as this special issue was going to press.
