Lust and Disgust in Austrian Literature Since 1945|
This course will examine both major and minor figures of Austrian literature since 1945. Special attention will be given to these writers' tendency to disassociate themselves from a specifically German tradition and to pursue characteristic themes and concerns. These include the myth of Austria as the first victim of Hitler, the musicality of Austrian prose, and the fetishization of literary language. Representative authors will include prose writers such as Ingeborg Bachmann and Thomas Bernhard, as well as experimental poets such as Ernst Jandl and Norbert Kaser.
