Abstract

While psychiatry and the neurosciences have dismissed the concept of neurosis as too vague for medical purposes, in recent years literary studies have adopted the term by virtue of its abstractness. This volume investigates the verbalization of neurosis in literary and cultural texts. As opposed to the medical diagnostics of neurosis in the individual, the contributions focus on the poetics of neurosis. They indicate how neuroses are still routinely romanticized or vilified, bent to suit aesthetic and narrative choices, and transfigured to illustrate unresolved cultural tensions.

Abstract

Through the concept of transdifference, conventional differentiations in terms of gender, ethnicity, class, generation or nation can be critically analyzed.The contributors of the volume show that moments of transdifference point to the possibilities of the modern individual to take part in shaping social structures in the late Habsburg monarchy during its social transformation. Discussing questions of canonization, multilingualism and transculturality, the essays explore forgotten works and reflect upon modern ways of living as well as the transgression of gender-specific and ethnic boundaries both in elite and mass culture.
