Magischer Realismus als Verfahren der späten Moderne
Paradoxien einer Poetik der Mitte
[The Intermediate Stage as a Paradox in the Writings of Late Modern Magic Realism]
Series:Studien zur deutschen Literatur 215
Aims and Scope
The study shows that the post-1920 texts of German realism drafted an intermediate-stage poetics, which integrated opposing literary procedures (realism, expressionism) and also communicated contradictory worldviews of modernity. This model, including all its paradoxes, remained operative until 1960, and thus proved robust in the face of classical breaks in literary history.
