Gender and Politics in Austrian Fiction by Ritchie Robertson
Book DescriptionThis work draws attention to a small group of Austrian prose writers, sometimes neglected in the past because they do not fit the familiar Protestant canon of German literature. It offers insights into the work of two Austrian writers exiled in the US: "Charles Sealsfield" and Ferdinand Kurnberger. A reading of Kafka's fiction in the light of homosexual revelations from his diaries, and a re-interpretation of Joseph Roth's "Radetzkymarsch" suggest an understanding of masculinity, while a look at Ingeborg's Bachmann's novel "Malina" examines gender relations in this period.
