230138 The Gift of Tongues: Literature and Exile (S) (SoSe 2019)

Inhalt, Kommentar

The struggle with language and language-switching are prominent aspects of exile and migration. This seminar will focus on exile and migration in the period of 1933 to 1945; most emigrees were Jews who fled persecution from Germany and France after the Nazi Party came to power in 1933. After the successful escape, many authors found themselves in a dilemma: they often felt as if they had no language anymore to write in or as if they were living a life in translation. Nevertheless, they discovered various ways to write in the language of others. Some soon wrote bilingually, others in mixed languages.
Approaching the phenomenon of German and French exile to America and England from the angle of language, we shall focus on important literary and theoretical texts, most of them written in and some after exile. We will investigate important aspects connected with this caesura, such as aphasia, polylingualism, and poetry in several languages.

Readings will include poems, essays, and novels by Joseph Brodsky, Norman Manea, Raymond Federman, Michael Hamburger, Mascha Kaléko, Hilde Spiel, Hilde Domin and others.
