Yu Hua’s novels, especially "To Live" (活着) und "Brothers" (兄弟), are characterized by their preference for grotesque scenes in which protagonists face situations of humiliation and degradation. In "Brothers", the protagonist Song Gang has to undergo a surgery and becomes provided with female breasts, in order to promote an ointment for breast augmentation. According to Mikhail Bakhtin, the deformation of the human body is typical for grotesque humor (as can be shown in Rabelais). Bakthin's description of grotesque humor, however, reveals a certain affinity towards totalitarian politics, and this is certainly true also for Yu Hua. In his novels, grotesque Humor is associated with a political situation in which human dignity is constantly getting undermined. As Yan Lianke puts it, living in modern china is categorically "without dignity": This statement is confirmed in Yu Hua’s novels. The texts deal with the protagonists’ search for dignity, and at the same time they explore the possibility of critical writing under conditions of political control. [less ▲]

Der Band "Der Erste Weltkrieg in der Literatur und Kunst" behandelt die Wahrnehmung und Verarbeitung des Kriegs in der europäischen Literatur. Der Band verfolgt zwei grundlegende Prinzipien. Anstelle einer vorgefassten 'Großthese' über den Verlauf des Krieges oder seine Folgen für die europäische Kultur geht es uns um die Kontingenz des historischen Geschehens. Zweitens entwickelt der Band eine komparatistisch geweitete Perspektive auf ganz Europa statt nur auf Deutschland oder nur auf Frankreich. Dabei weitet sich der Blick programmatisch auf die Perspektive auch der 'Kleinmächte' wie Luxemburg, Polen und Estland aus. Als innovativer Ansatzpunkt erlaubt dieser multiperspektivische Blick auf ein gemeinsam erlebtes, jedoch unterschiedlich erfahrenes Ereignis eine differenzierte Sicht auf einige Narrative um den Ersten Weltkrieg, [less ▲]

The notion of world literature is often understood as a global distribution of literary forms and structures from Europe to the rest of the globe. Under the premise that non-European literatures don't just reproduce European forms, but reinterpret and change them in the process of adaptation, world literature can be defined as a "productive misunderstanding". This article attempts to show that Orhan Pamuk's novel "Masumiyet Müzesi" ("Museum of Innocence") is in this sense a productive appropriation of European forms of the novel. Pamuk's novel is a narration about the modernization of Turkey in the 20th century, which is depicted as a chain of faulty imitation that nevertheless creates something new. Similarly, the "Museum of Innocence" is characterized by an abundance of intertextual relations to the tradition of European novel (e.g., to Proust's texts), which, however creates a "productive misunderstanding".
