The Telling Tactics of Narrative Strategies in Tieck, Kleist, Stifter, and Storm


Michael Boehringer

Michael Boehringer applies the precepts of modern narrative theory to the analysis of well-known novellas by Ludwig Tieck, Heinrich von Kleist, Adalbert Stifter, and Theodor Storm. The resulting investigations of each text's narrative structure explore the uneasy balance between structure and content, open new interpretive perspectives, and demonstrate the changing nature of narration in the nineteenth century.
