Main Description
Diese Studie untersucht deutschsprachige Reiseberichte über Griechenland aus dem Zeitraum von 1908 bis 1962. Erstmals wird ein wesentlicher Bestandteil des deutschen Griechenlanddiskurses zugänglich gemacht, in übergreifenden Strömungen verortet und eingehend analysiert: Die Bandbreite reicht von den schwärmerischen Subjektivitätsentwürfen der Jahrhundertwende (Gerhart Hauptmann, Hugo von Hofmannsthal) über die politisch akzentuierten Reiseberichte aus der Weimarer Republik und der Zeit des Nationalsozialismus (Erhart Kästner) bis hin zu den skeptischen Distanzierungen der Nachkriegsjahre (Wolfgang Koeppen).
Main Description
This study examines German-language travelogues about Greece written between 1908 and 1962. This is the first time that an important element of German discourse on Greece has been made accessible, described in broad strokes, and thoroughly analyzed. The range of subjects considered in this volume ranges from the gushing displays of subjectivity from the turn of the century (Gerhart Hauptmann, Hugo von Hofmannsthal) to the politically accentuated travelogues from the Weimar Republic and the National Socialist period (Erhart Kästner). It also includes the more skeptical and reticent attitudes that characterized the post-war period (Wolfgang Koeppen).
