"The Killy includes bio-bibliographical articles about all of the important German-language authors from the Middle Ages to the present. It provides clear, reliable, and extensive information on the life and works of each author, thus facilitating the classification of each into a historical and literary-historical context. The Killy includes not only the greatest and most important authors of each era, but also journalists, screenplay authors, literary scientists, and writers of specialist literature. Moreover, the easy-to-read articles are distinguished by the synopsis of biographies, contemporary history, and oeuvre, like no other lexicon of German literature provides."
