Experimental Writing, Experimental Reading, Warren Motte

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

The notion of "experimental writing" is difficult to define with any kind of precision. Most of the time it is invoked in a largely offhanded manner, as if its meaning were immediately clear to everyone, obviating the need for further discussion. That assumption is a matter of expediency rather than anything else, for even a cursory glance at the way people use the term quickly reveals that the way we understand it varies considerably, changing over both time and cultural space. This essay seeks to examine how the idea of the experimental expresses itself in the tradition of the twentieth-century ...


Performing Editorial Authority In Ingo Schulze’S Epistolary Novel Neue Leben, Anita Lukic 2018 Indiana University - Bloomington

Performing Editorial Authority In Ingo Schulze’S Epistolary Novel Neue Leben, Anita Lukic

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

In this article, I argue that Ingo Schulze’s novel Neue Leben (New Lives, 2005) experiments with new forms of omniscient narration. Following the work of Paul Dawson, I show that the editor figure performs his authority as a public intellectual through the commentary he provides for the letters written by Enrico Türmer. The footnotes that the editor adds can be divided into two categories. In explanatory footnotes, the editor crosschecks Enrico’s references to the GDR against extra-fictional information that readers may find in newspapers, reference books, and other sources. By linking the fictional and extra-fictional discourse through his ...

Agency And Political Engagement In Gide And Barrault's Post-War Theatrical Adaptation Of Kafka's The Trial, Yevgenya Strakovsky 2017 Stanford University

Agency And Political Engagement In Gide And Barrault's Post-War Theatrical Adaptation Of Kafka's The Trial, Yevgenya Strakovsky

CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture

In her article, "Agency and Political Engagement in Gide and Barrault's Post-war Theatrical Adaptation of Kafka's The Trial" Yevgenya Strakovsky considers the political themes of André Gide and Jean-Louis Barrault's Le Procès (The Trial, 1947), the first theatrical adaptation of Franz Kafka's Der Prozess (The Trial, 1914). Strakovsky demonstrates that Le Procès, written and staged in the immediate aftermath of World War II, levels a critique against the passive complicity of citizens in unjust persecution in both its script and its staging. The paper also considers the elements of Kafka's prose that lend themselves to ...

Vom Kreativen Umgang Mit ,Gott‘ Eine Analyse Der Behandlung (Christlicher) Moralbegriffe In Ausgewählten Werken Lou Andreas-Salomés, Silke Gudrun Seibold 2017 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Vom Kreativen Umgang Mit ,Gott‘ Eine Analyse Der Behandlung (Christlicher) Moralbegriffe In Ausgewählten Werken Lou Andreas-Salomés, Silke Gudrun Seibold

Masters Theses

Lou Andreas-Salomé is widely known for her ties to famous German authors and scholars such as Nietzsche, Rilke and Freud. However, literary critics often fail to recognize Andreas-Salomé’s own authorship. This thesis tries to paint a more nuanced picture of the author by putting her literary works at the center of attention, tracing one of the predominant topics of her literary works – questions of Christian morality. It assesses the changes in how Andreas-Salomé negotiates questions of Christian morality in those of her works that make this a central theme, namely Im Kampf um Gott (1885), Aus fremder Seele (1896 ...


Selbstinszenierung Im Deutschrap: Konstruktion Von Identität Und Authentizität Im Subgenre Des Gangstaraps Am Beispiel Von Kollegah Und Xatar, Sladana Gnjatic 2017 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Selbstinszenierung Im Deutschrap: Konstruktion Von Identität Und Authentizität Im Subgenre Des Gangstaraps Am Beispiel Von Kollegah Und Xatar, Sladana Gnjatic

Masters Theses

This thesis examines the construction of identity in German Gangsta rap by taking a close look at the rappers Kollegah and Xatar, who are both using their music for self-portrayal. The selection of those two rappers can be justified by their commercial success in Germany and further by their differences as well as similarities in the construction of their images. The first chapter gives a historical overview of American and German rap. It also analyzes specific features and trends in German rap and describes the current status of research. The focus of the second chapter is on the rapper Kollegah ...


Hysterie Und Zaubertränke: Hofmannsthals Ägyptische Helena Als Therapiegeschichte, Raphael Johannes Mueller 2017 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Hysterie Und Zaubertränke: Hofmannsthals Ägyptische Helena Als Therapiegeschichte, Raphael Johannes Mueller

Masters Theses

In this thesis, Die ägyptische Helena by Hugo von Hofmannsthal is read as the story of the healing process of the main character Menelas. The main hypothesis states that Hofmannsthal designed the mental disease of Menelas according to the theory of hysteria that Josef Breuer and Sigmund Freud described in their Studies on Hysteria (Studien über Hysterie, published in 1895). In the treatment of Menelas’ disease, magic potions play a crucial role. The thesis argues that although those potions are similar to psychotropic drugs, Hofmannsthal refers much more to the potions in Richard Wagner’s operas Tristan und Isolde (1865 ...
