Abstract

Arbeitsfeld der Untersuchung ist die in der Literaturwissenschaft immer wieder statuierte oder stillschweigend akzeptierte ‚Romanlücke‘ in der deutschen Literatur des 18. Jahrhunderts, etwa vom Ende des Barockromans bis zum Erscheinen von Wielands „Agathon“ dauernd, von wenigen Ausnahmen wie Schnabel und Gellert noch akzentuiert. Nach einem eingehenden geschichts-, sozial- und kulturphilosophischen sowie literaturgeschichtlich kritischen Vorbericht folgt die Analyse ausgewählter deutscher Original-Romane zwischen 1740 und 1790 aus literaturtheoretischer, literaturwissenschaftlicher, sozial- und kulturwissenschaftlicher Perspektive mit derselben Eindringlichkeit, die man sonst den klassischen Werken des Kanons zu widmen pflegt. Sie richtet so den Blick auf die Landschaften der „wässerigen, weitschweifigen, nullen Epoche“, um gewahr werden zu lassen, dass dort nicht „alles unter einander ins Flache gezogen ward“ (Goethe).

Abstract

The present book about Vienna is volume 4 of an encyclopedic reference work that, as the result of basic research in literary studies, represents the first systematic attempt towards a comprehensive documentation of the literary life of Austria during the Nazi era. From its methodological approach, it is intended to make the literary events that took place within the official system of the Third Reich as promoted, or at least tolerated, by the decision-makers in the cultural industry more accessible, without resorting to limiting, biased attempts to define a canon.

Abstract

This comparative investigation is focused on the comparison of contents, themes, topics, motives, but also symbolism, stereotype situations, patterns of behavior etc. of sung and narrated oral text in South-east Europe. Great importance was given to bibliography, usually difficult to compile in a time-consuming process; a separate part at the end of the volume is dedicated to a bibliographie résonée, arranged according to countries and genres; this will facilitate further and more specific research in special fields of interest. This book offers for the first time a comparative survey of nearly all genres of the traditional oral folklore of Southeast Europe, independent from language, ethnic grouping, national boarders, religion and confessions; in this way the high degree of homogenity of the highly developed traditional oral culture in the historical Balkans is documented as well as the high numbers of variants and versions and the superb literary quality of these orally transmitted lingual manifestations, in some cases equal to the written literature of the region.

Abstract

These days, it is commonly forgotten that Bavarian-Austrian dialect art flourished in elite culture and even more in popular counterculture before 1800. The book makes the amazing variety of forms and modes of operation visible again. In eight chapters, the most important, predominantly unedited texts and their authors are presented, contextualized, and related to current research fields using an interdisciplinary approach.

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 impact of censorship on the political and intellectual climate in Austria between 1751 and 1848 can hardly be over-estimated. The book covers the institutions involved in censorship, its procedures and results represented by the lists of banned books, and the censors, authors, publishers, and book-sellers affected by bans. Ten case studies deal with selected literary genres and epochs, the appendix contains documents regarding censorship legislation and administration.

Abstract

The study analyses Cold War discourses in Austrian post-war literature, a subject that so far has been neglected in Austrian literary history. Through extensive research, 50 mainly unknown or little acknowledged novels, stories, plays and scenes were discovered which discuss phenomena of the Cold War that defined the first post-war decades. The theoretical focus on New Historicism allows an analysis of a broad spectrum of thematic clusters, images, discursive constellations and narratives which are contextualised both in national and international Cold War discourse./ In 15 chapters, the study discusses the discursive patterns of more than 50 rather unknown books from Austrian literature from the period 1945 to 1966, such as constructions and imaginations of borders, fictive travels behind the Iron Curtain, the Gulag, and metaphors of disease and narratives of espionage. These discourse patterns are positioned within the context of the Cold War.
