«...dein und mein Gedächtnis ein Weltall»

A Metahistorical Avenue into Marie-Thérèse Kerschbaumer’s Literary World of Women


W. Bryan Kirby

This is the first comprehensive study of the Austrian author, Marie-Thérèse Kerschbaumer (b. 1936). It is at once a broad introduction as well as a metahistorical analysis of her major prose works. Using some of the ideas in Hayden White’s Metahistory as a springboard, individual chapters discuss Kerschbaumer’s inclusion of history in each of her fictional works. Kerschbaumer’s œuvre is integral to studies in contemporary Austrian literature and German literature by women writers.
