Kulturelle Verschränkungen in Abdourahman Waberis Tor der Tränen
In the age of globalization, modern African and European fiction distinguish themselves more than ever by their many-voiced and multi-layered construction forms of the narrative. On account of that they cannot be assigned any more to a strictly defined nation, but be grasped as a heterogeneous ensemble. From these hybrid or trans-cultural narrative modes a literary Globality originates by emerging a crossing over between Europe and Africa. Referring to Tor der Tränen by Abdourahman Waberi, this article wants to set out how narrative relations to the German philosopher Walter Benjamin are constructed. Following the theory of creolisation by Edouard Glissant the contribution will analyse, how Waberis book can be read as a draft of global relations poetic.
