Arbeit am Mythos – Arbeit mit dem Mythos

Zu Ulrich Hoffmanns mythostheoretischen Hartmann-Lektüren

Drawing on Ulrich Hoffmann’s study, the paper critically discusses its methodical attempt to fathom the ›mythicity‹ of Arthurian literature in all the different dimensions of the texts: the diachronic history of the subject matter and its synchronic contextualization, form and content. Consistent with current approaches of medieval cultural studies, the article suggests emphasizing how mythic traditions are used to narrativize historically relevant topics (›work with myth‹) rather than observing the ongoing process of their adaptation in a diachronic perspective (›work on myth‹).
