WEIBLICHE AUSSTEIGERFIGUREN IN (KON)TEXTEN DER NEUESTEN DEUTSCHEN LITERATUR – ALEXA HENNIG VON LANGES WARUM SO TRAURIG? (2004) UND SILKE SCHEUERMANNS DIE ÜBERGABE (2005)
Languages of publication
Around the turn of the millennium, one could witness rapid changes in lifestyles and ways of life. The ‘old’, traditional role assignments have lost their meaning as a valid value system. From the gender point of view, there arises a question whether the postmodern diversity of choices offers women greater opportunities and gains, or whether it leads to disorientation and loss. This issue is examined by investigating texts by two contemporary German women writers, Alexa Hennig von Lange and Silke Scheuermann, who place their protagonists in the cultural context of postmodernism.
