  1. Including the excluded : strategies of opening up in late medieval religious writing

    Practices of rewriting and mouvance are central to medieval culture, but have been neglected by contemporary scholarship. This paper highlights how collaborative forms of writing such as religious song engage with complex theological thought, opening up a discourse from which the laity had previously been excluded. Using forms which defy conventional author-based aesthetic norms, these songs explore poetic practices which are both collective and inclusive.

  2. Incomplete and self-dismantling structures : the built space, the text, the body

    The present essay engages with the short story 'The Burrow', written by Franz Kafka between 1923 and 1924, a few months before his death. The ambiguity of the original title, 'Der Bau', which defies translation by pointing at the same time at a construction and an excavation work, anticipates the multilayered image of the burrow itself. While both nature and function of the burrow are hard to pinpoint (is it a dwelling, a shelter, a fortress, a labyrinth, a ruin?), the initially reported success of its construction is revealed as illusory, thus prompting the ongoing first-person narration of the incessant builder's work. Similarly unsuccessful is any attempt of the reader to attain metaphorical closure. In the light of other impossible, i.e., unfinished, bound-to-fail, ruinous, or selfdismantling structures portrayed by Kafka, as well as on the background of coeval texts by Paul Valéry and Georg Simmel, the essay investigates the wide and deep significance of the burrow’s countering the classical ideal of architectural wholeness.

  3. Dante's "Inferno" and Walter Benjamin's cities : considerations of place, experience, and media

    When Walter Benjamin wrote his main texts, the theme of the city as hell was extremely popular. Some of his German contemporaries, such as Brecht or Döblin, also used it. Benjamin was aware of these examples, as well as of examples outside Germany, including Joyce's "Ulysses" and Baudelaire's "poetry". And he was - at least in some way - familiar with Dante's "Inferno" and used it, and in particular Dante's conception of hell, for his own purposes. Benjamin's appropriation of the topos of the Inferno has been seen as a critique of capitalism and as a general critique of modernism by means of allegory. In the following analysis, Angela Merte-Rankin takes a slightly different approach and, despite Benjamin's status as an expert on allegory, considers hell in its literal sense as a place and examines the issues of implacement that might follow from this standpoint.

  4. 'Il mal seme d'Adamo' : Dante's "Inferno" and the problem of the literary representation of evil in Thomas Mann's "Doktor Faustus" and Wolfgang Koeppen's "Der Tod in Rom"

    Even if the title of Wolfgang Koeppen's last novel, "Der Tod in Rom", alludes quite obviously to Thomas Mann's novella, "Der Tod in Venedig", Koeppen's text must be understood first and foremost as a response to Mann's most controversial novel, "Doktor Faustus". The novels of Mann and Koeppen rank among the most well-known literary examinations of National Socialism but stand in a complementary relation to each other. "Doktor Faustus", published in 1947, analyses the cultural and intellectual origins of German fascism, while "Der Tod in Rom", published only seven years later in 1954, criticizes the continuity of National Socialist ideologies in post-war Germany. Both authors focus their analyses of fascism on fictional avant-garde composers who seem at first glance detached from any political context. [...] The actual starting point of Florian Trabert's paper, however, is the fact that both novels are preceded by epigraphs taken from Dante's "Inferno". Trabert begins by commenting on the references to Dante in "Doktor Faustus" and then continues by analysing the allusions to the "Commedia" in Koeppen's novel, which constitute, as Trabert demonstrates, a complex constellation among the three texts.

  5. Geisterlehre und Gespenstergeschichte : literarischer und philosophischer Diskurs in der deutschen Spätaufklärung bei Christoph Martin Wieland und Jean Paul

    Dass zu den erfolgreichsten Wörtern in der Zeit der Aufklärung die Begriffe Gespenst und Geist zählen, unterstreicht Elisa Leonzio in ihren Ausführungen. Je entschlossener die Rationalisierungsversuche solcher Phänomene in Angriff genommen werden, desto mehr verbreitet sich paradoxerweise die (technische) Geisterseherei und steigt die Faszination für das Übernatürliche. Ausgehend von dem dualistischen Einschluss des Unheimlichen in die Gattung des Romans untersucht Leonzio Christoph Martin Wielands "Agathon" (1766) und Jean Pauls "Unsichtbare Loge" (1793). Dabei wird erkennbar, wie wesentlich für Jean Pauls Poetologie das zeitgenössische Wissen über technische Apparaturen war, mit denen Geister aus dem Jenseits 'herbeigerufen' wurden.
