Other literary forms
Poetry, adventure stories, and articles by Erich Maria Remarque (ruh-MAHRK) appeared in the 1920’s in German newspapers and magazines before the young author had assumed his pen name, and the novel Die Traumbude was succeeded by Station am Horizont, a novel that first appeared in installments in the journal Sport im Bild. In the United States, several novels by Erich Maria Remarque reached mass circulation in magazines such as Collier’s and Good Housekeeping before being published as single titles.
The film The Other Love (directed by André De Toth and released in 1947) was based on Remarque’s unpublished story “Beyond,” and the story “Der letzte Akt” (1955) was based on his screenplay of the book Ten Days to Die (1955) by Michael A. Musmanno, concerning the Nuremberg Trials of Nazi war criminals. Questions of guilt and moral responsibility in wartime, dominant themes in Remarque’s works, are treated also in his two-scene play Die letzte Station, which was produced in Germany in 1956 and was adapted in 1974 as Full Circle.
