The medieval ›Märe‹ is known for its special ›Typik‹ and so far no particular attention has been paid to the prevalence and effects of time and space in the texts. This article focuses on the narration and perception of time- and space-arrangements in texts of Heinrich Kaufringer. In view of how Kaufringer acts as a narrative director giving time and space a special integrative function, his cyclic texts ›Die Suche nach dem glücklichen Ehepaar‹ and ›Drei listige Frauen‹ are discussed in detail. Interestingly, a narrative strategy of synchronization and poetic compression creates multifaceted possibilities of actions here that could be happening whereas the common strategy of didactic narration seems to become less important. These results could contribute to a better understanding of the effects and possible intentions of choosing time- and space-settings and especially narrating simultaneity in medieval literature.
