Languages of publication
This case study of the novel On Chicken Wings by the German writing author of Slovak origin Irena Brežná observes historicity in this novel on several levels: breakthrough moments happen both on macro-level (from the Stalin cult to the Prague Spring) as well as micro-level (autobiographical elements connected to the historical period in Czechoslovakia). It illuminates various contexts and subtexts through the term hybridity (H. Bhabha and others). It searches for the signs of the author’s intercultural translation (G. Spivak) between the East and the West, Slovak and German, the past and present, “great” and “small” history.
