This study explores this literary phenomenon using a multi-perspectival descriptive model. Extensive detailed case studies provide basic information and present the genre in its broader literary historical and systematic context.

Abstract

Cultures of Genre aims at a comprehensive, systematic and historical re-evaluation of the category of literary genre in German literature 1750-1950. It investigates aspects of the historical relationship between orders of knowledge, orders of literary genre and social orderings. Based on an understanding of genre as a performative act of cultural classification, the book analyzes the cultural poetics of writers and theorists including Johann Gottfried Herder, Johann Wolfgang v. Goethe, Jacob Grimm, Karoline v. Günderrode, Bettine v. Arnim, Adalbert Stifter, Georg Lukács, Walter Benjamin, Hugo v. Hofmannsthal and Bertolt Brecht.

Abstract

The present book consists of two parts, thus embodying the “two forces” that Bakhtin sees at play in every work of art: form and content. They are accorded equal weight. With regard to form, the book explores the various literary strategies employed by Doderer in his “Divertimenti,” in as much as they are inspired by musical forms. With regard to content the book focuses on the rather gloomy subjects that dominate the “Divertimenti.” The aim is to explore in how far these two aspects, i.e. musical form – a superstructure informed by musical aesthetics – and melancholic content – an oppressive atmosphere, the explicit foregrounding of experiences of depression – depend on each other. The book shows how they form a compelling whole.It is based on a variety of unpublished primary sources that have not been studied before, including an early fragment of “Divertimento No VI” („Erwachen fröhlicher Empfindungen bei der Ankunft auf dem Lande“) as well as diary sketches and draft outlines of the composition of the work. The book is thus able to comprehensively explore the musical techniques and strategies of musical composition of the “Divertimenti.” This thorough formal analysis provides new insights into what Steven Paul Scher has called an area of “comparative liminality” – that area in which the conditions are negotiated under which musical techniques can be transferred into “literature.”The “Divertimenti” belong to the world of Saturn. By focusing on melancholy and depression – topics that resonate throughout the Divertimenti and provide the dark undertone of the author’s later works – the book offers a new reading of Doderer’s work; it brings to light depictions of “deperceptive” states. This requires a new explanation of Doderer’s own theory of “apperception” and “deperception,” and of “first” and “second reality.” It will be offered in light of Kristeva’s “dark sun.” The book explores depictions of melancholy in a broader context and considers potential links between literary and clinical manifestations of melancholy.In view of the intellectual milieu of contemporary Vienna, the present study shows how deeply indebted Doderer’s early works are to Viennese Modernism – a quality that has been obstructed by the fact that most of these works were only published after Doderer’s death. This presupposes an appreciation of the Wiener Moderne which goes beyond the time span suggested by Gotthart Wunberg’s 1981 anthology, “Die Wiener Moderne. Literatur, Kunst und Musik zwischen 1890 und 1910,” instead drawing inspiration from “Wien 1880-1938. Die fröhliche Apokalypse,” a 1986 exhibition at the Centre Pompidou in Paris which, according to Jacques Le Rider, epitomizes the study of Viennese Modernism.Doderer’s receptivity for the intellectual, theoretical, and artistic movements of the turn of the 20th century is shown to be more pronounced than previously assumed. While the ambition of Doderer’s works ultimately transcends Viennese Modernism, a close exploration of the central tenets of this period can highlight various aspects of his early works, especially his uncompromising will to (musical) form.

Abstract

The result of my extensive research project is the first comprehensive study on the life and work of H. G. Adler, an important member of the circle around Elias and Veza Canetti, Erich Fried etc., whose ground-breaking scholarly work long overshadowed his reputation as a creative writer. Adler, a German-Jewish writer, born in Prague in 1910, was the inmate of various National Socialist concentration camps (Theresienstadt, Auschwitz) during the Second World War and lived in exile in London from 1947 until his death in 1988.Both as a scholar and as a creative writer, this prolific author is one of the most interesting and most versatile personalities in postwar history. In addition to publishing seminal works on the Holocaust, he left behind an important and to a large extent unpublished body of work, consisting of narrative prose, poetry and drama as well as scholarly articles and books on history, sociology, politics, psychology, language and literature, music, arts, philosophy, theology and Jewish studies. The works of H. G. Adler address central contemporary concerns, cover a large number of areas of interest (European cultural and intellectual history, 20th century German literature, exile studies, Holocaust research etc.) and shall thus - so I hope - attract considerably more attention in the future.This monograph attempts to close a major gap in exile studies that has often been complained about in the past. Its most important topical areas are: H. G. Adler's biography, Theresienstadt (Terezín), exile in England, the development and interdependence of scholarly work and literature, H. G. Adler's position amongst writers such as Karl Kraus, Franz Kafka, George Orwell, Elias Canetti and W. G. Sebald, H. G. Adler as Franz Baermann Steiner's literary executor, H. G. Adler's position amongst London émigrés, H. G. Adler and Austria (despite his exile in England, Adler throughout his life remained closely associated with Austrian culture).This study focuses on Adler's most important and best known works "Theresienstadt 1941-1945" and "Die verheimlichte Wahrheit", books and articles like "Die Dichtung der Prager Schule" and "Der Kampf gegen die 'Endlösung der Judenfrage'", which have hitherto been neglected by academic research, the voluminous autobiographically structured or autobiographically influenced novels "Panorama", "Eine Reise" and "Die unsichtbare Wand" as well as numerous unpublished texts, documents and photographs from Adler's literary estate. It is rounded off by a complete bibliography of H. G. Adler's publication from 1947 to 1988.The time for a monograph about H. G. Adler is ideal: 2008 - 20th anniversary of H. G. Adler's death; 2010 - H. G. Adler's 100th birthday.

Abstract

This work originated from a (seemingly) simple question, but at the same time it tries to discuss a general problem. The question is: where does the plot of the "Wilhelm Meister apprenticeship" actually take place? Is it a "real" world, a world that we "know otherwise" or, given the time gap that separates us from this world, we also use other, non-literary, and in any case, non-work, means (for example, with the help of historical research) can open up to us? Can we even speak of a "reality in itself"? Or has she become questionable to us? Or do we only see a - concept in it? The latter is the case for this work.

Abstract

At present, Macedonia is again increasingly present in the German-speaking media discourse, in particular due to the so-called "name dispute" with Greece. But what is it when we talk about Macedonia? The media representation of the region often remains diffuse and is strongly influenced by stereotypes. In his comprehensive analysis, Benjamin Langer shows for the first time how this south-eastern European region was shaped in German-language texts from a terra incognita on the periphery of Europe and provided with attributions. In ten thematic chapters, he shows how powerful these images are despite their contradictions and changing instrumentalization to this day.
