    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    Elias Canetti was a passionate believer in the power of the proper name. This study attempts for the first time to systematically present his Work on Names. Drawing upon a wealth of previously unknown documents, it reveals the great interpretational relevance of Canetti’s Zurich Nachlass. The book casts new light on the works of one of the 20th century’s greatest writers in the German language.

    Reviews

    " Besonderen Wert erhält A. Schülers Arbeit dadurch, dass der Autor zur Erhellung seiner Aussagen auch den seit 2002 zum größten Teil freigegebenen Züricher Nachlass systematisch ausgewertet hat – eine gar nicht hoch genug einzuschätzende Leistung."
    Volker Kohlheim in: Beiträge zur Namenforschung 53.2 (2018), 274-279
