This change in perspective is not universal in the criticism, however, and many psychoanalytical readings like Wolfdietrich Rasch's from describe the inorganic as a negative force such as the death drive. The less personal, more flippant novel Flametti oder vom Dandysmus der Armen had appeared in The geological discus- sions taking place during the Age of Goethe about the organic and inorganic are thus one place where we can re- view and recon- sider some of the shifting assumptions about the delineation of the Earth's body and its relationship to the human body. Nevertheless, although at first reluctant to let outside factors determine his life, chance, in the form of Lulu, ultimately intervenes in his suicidal plans, setting him on a different course and ending the biographical link to Kleist, who took his own life in Brecht wrote closely with Klabund, who would later give Brecht the idea for Der kaukasische Kreidekreis.

Feridun Zaimoglu 1 Although the spelling of Zaimoglu's name in some secondary literature includes the breve, not wishing to impose a marker of difference I have chosen to write his name as it appears in his publications. Tom Cheesman and Karin E.
Both texts by Zaimoglu have thus far received little scholarly consideration. Yet, their debt to Romanticism is significant to understanding Zaimoglu's cosmopolitanism as more than simply a bid for acceptance in the German literary canon. This is not a political programme, but something that, although always present, occurs to us in flashes and can perhaps never be fully achieved.

Peter Connor, tr. Second, I will investigate the cosmopolitan alternative to compartmentalised multiculturalism suggested in the transnational sensibilities of the novel Hinterland. However, disillusioned with the bourgeois world, he elects to live as a recluse in the hope of minimising the intervention of chance occurrences and other people in his life. Nevertheless, Fernando's circumstances change dramatically when he is hit by a car and immediately falls in love with the driver, Lulu, who comes to his aid ZGG , pp.
Unser Alltagsleben besteht aus lauter erhaltenden, immer wiederkehrenden Verrichtungen. Philister leben nur ein Alltagsleben. Das Hauptmittel scheint ihr einziger Zweck zu seyn. The philistine world, however, stands in contrast to the street where he meets Lulu, which is transformed into a magical, otherworldly setting, demonstrating that Fernando has reached a more Romantic intensity of existence through their relationship. ZGG , p.
Though Kleist is an outsider to Romanticism, I would argue that these references are still connected to Zaimoglu's Romantic turn. Benno von Wiese, Berlin , pp. I would argue that Kleist is a Romantic by intellectual conviction, as he shared their critique of the Enlightenment. Tim Mehigan, Rochester, NY , pp.
Contrary to the Enlightenment paradigm that human rationality and logic govern our actions, Kleist's fiction not unlike Zaimoglu's illustrates, especially when the power of love is concerned, that our actions are seldom governed by reason and are, in fact, often irrational. Furthermore, Kleist's and Zaimoglu's dismissals of the Enlightenment master narrative of the autonomous reasoned individual also appear to question the sovereignty of subjectivity in a manner compatible with Nancy, implying a limit to individual autonomy.
Lulu is a Kleistian figure — prone to uncontrollable physical displays of emotion, she repeatedly bursts into laughter or erupts into blushes ZGG , p. According to Gerhard Fricke, Kleist's life plan was an attempt to master fate and chance. In a way that perhaps mythologises Kleist's life, his suicide especially in older Kleist scholarship 28 See Fricke, p. Though biographical interpretations such as these have fallen out of fashion, I would argue that such readings are nevertheless significant as they have had a lasting effect on how Kleist the person is viewed.
Nevertheless, although at first reluctant to let outside factors determine his life, chance, in the form of Lulu, ultimately intervenes in his suicidal plans, setting him on a different course and ending the biographical link to Kleist, who took his own life in Kleist states that a person enflamed with passion will go to the aid of the helpless, and this is reflected both in Lulu's actions after the crash and Fernando's subsequent behaviour.
This can equally be viewed in connection with Nancy's understanding of love. Love brings our ontological interrelatedness to the fore, rendering the inoperative community more accessible. The end result is not significant they expect defeat ; rather, the meaning lies in their participation in the spontaneous flows of community.
They reach Fernando's home only to notice that a fire has broken out. Here, it is not clear whether it is Fernando and Lulu's passion or the riot that is being referred to. Nonetheless, both readings suggest that Fernando's new openness and departure from the philistine world, whilst allowing him access to a Romantic intensity of feeling, expose him to danger.
Fernando's initial disregard for the confrontation with the homeless man and his subsequent participation in the demonstration stand in contrast to one another, reflecting love's power to draw attention to the relations between people, as outlined in Kleist's letter and Nancy's philosophy. Fernando's love for Lulu exposes him to his connectedness to others, leading him to take part in the uprising and to give in to forces whose outcomes and aims are unknown.
In line with Nancy's philosophy, this indicates that the fallacy of an atomised existence, immune to the influence of others, is revealed by the crossing of love. This ontological interrelatedness will be further explored in the following section on Hinterland. Diese Kultur hat einen Eingang und einen Ausgang.
Hinterland can be read as a cosmopolitan alternative to multiculturalism, in which relationships transcend national borders, hinting at the inoperative community beyond identity. The novel arguably Zaimoglu's most challenging to date has no conventional beginning or end, and is divided into interlinking episodes that are themselves further divided into fragmentary stories, returning intermittently to the central narrative. Hinterland , in which dwarves, witches and other supernatural beings serve to create the feeling of a modern fairy tale, has obvious superficial evidence of an engagement with Romanticism.
Although this shift must be viewed within the context of the recently ended Holy Roman Empire in which Napoleon's forces were an occupying presence, the relationship between Zaimoglu's work and the more overtly nationalist Romantics requires close scrutiny.
Aneschka is from Prague and is labelled a dreamer H , p. Characters come and go, some only to appear briefly, yet minute details are provided for all of them and all are connected to the wider world through transnational relationships. Further allusions to Novalis can be found in Hinterland , such as the nameless character from Berlin who makes a passing comment about his amazement at the blue feathers of a jay's wings. This character is in a complicated relationship: his girlfriend, Sandra, wishes to maintain a relationship with a woman named Iris as well.
He ultimately decides to end his relationship with Sandra, electing instead to search for the blue of the jay's wings H , p. Ironically, however, it is his brother Franz who begins a relationship with the woman Jacinta, whose name derives from the blue flower, the Hyacinth H , p. Ein Herzmedikament? Kein Tageslicht, nur blauer Schein.
Thus, the confusing changes in location, character and perspective the novel's narrative technique regularly oscillates between first and third person echo Novalis's pronouncements that fairy tales should be dreamlike and jumbled. Wolfdietrich Rasch, Munich , p. However, just as a great deal of Romantic writing was either unfinished or intentionally a fragment, so too must Hinterland remain a fragment, for the depiction of the entire universe within a novel is impossible, as Fr.
Schlegel of course knew.
