  • Masculinity in German-Turkish Films

    • Authors: Onur Kemal BAZARKAYA
      Abstract: Since the mid-1990s, in social and cultural sciences it has been discussed to which extend masculinity is in crisis and how this is reflected in social processes as well as artistic works. Raewyn Connell’s concept of ‘hegemonic masculinity’, which has meanwhile become a theoretical classic, is central in this context. Regarding the German-Turkish film, the thesis of masculinity in crisis can be located particularly to the 2000s and 2010s. For this period, the (self)conscious reflection of transcultural positions and the naturalness, with which multicultural identity attributions are made, has a special significance; the second and third generation of immigrants doesn’t appear to have an essential understanding of culture. What drives their representatives is rather the individual search for their own lifestyle. It can be assumed that such searching movements are also extended to the negotiations of gender roles. The article will deal with the question of what this concretely means in terms of masculinity varieties implied in German-Turkish films – a subject that has so far been largely ignored in research. This will be realized on the basis of a serial of (subjectively) selected films, whose analysis is presenting a structural overview of the topic. The focus lies on four mutually impacting points: 1. state vs. milieu, 2. father vs. son, 3. Cain vs. Abel (the rivalry between brothers), and 4. man vs. woman. For the theoretical perspectivation of these oppositions various hypotheses from the Men’s Studies, which are attached to Connell’s concept of ‘hegemonic masculinity’, are applied.

  • The Habsburg Myth in the Writings of Ingeborg Bachmann

    • Authors: Mersiha ŠKRGİĆ
      Abstract: The article examines references to the Habsburg myth in selected works by the author Ingeborg Bachmann. The texts that are mainly analyzed are the short stories from Simultan and the novel Malina. The texts are chosen based on Bachmann’s confrontation with the Austrian past and only texts with explicit examples of this matter are taken into consideration. Specific examples of the Habsburg myth in the author’s works indicate that Bachmann’s analysis of Austrian society after the Second World War drew attention to the causes and consequences of this catastrophe and linked it to the First World War. It warns against the glorification of the past and the lack of confrontation with one’s own history and guilt, which are particularly characteristic of Austria. It is shown that Bachmann does not continue the Habsburg myth, but demands a critical handling of this phenomenon which is also the way of the younger generation of authors in the Austrian literature who reject mythologizing the past. Bachmann creates the utopian idea of a House of Austria, which serves as a mental homeland for her protagonists and is not to be equated with the actual empire that has perished. She distances herself from the perpetuation of the Habsburg myth by calling for a confrontation with one’s own past instead of an idealization of the past.

  • The Concept of the Grotesque in Literature: Friedrich Dürrenmatt’s Play
           The Physicists and Its Turkish Translation

    • Authors: Meltem KILIÇ; Arsun URAS
      Abstract: The grotesque is a form of humor in which contradictory concepts are intertwined and first emerged in the West. Although initially a genre used in the fine arts, it later played an important role in world literature and influenced non-Western literature. The main purposes of this study are to examine the Turkish translation of Die Physiker (The Physicists), a two-act play with grotesque elements written by the Swiss author and painter Friedrich Dürrenmatt, one of the most important representatives of this genre to be introduced to Türkiye through translation who glorified this concept in both his paintings and plays and successfully displayed all its features, and to discuss the reflection of the grotesque in the target language and culture. To this end, the study analyzes the translation decisions of translator Mustafa Tüzel in his 2005 translation and questions the function of this translation in the Turkish literary system. The concept of the grotesque and its characteristics are discussed alongside its place and importance in Dürrenmatt’s life through the play Die Physiker and its translation. The aims here are to show how the author’s character is as prone to the grotesque as his view of the world and to draw attention to the fact that his close relationship with this genre can be a great help in creating grotesque works. The study does not evaluate the work through the concept of performability due to the present edition of the examined work being intended for literary readers.

  • A Psychodynamic Approach to Peter Stamm’s Novel To the Back of

    • Authors: Zennube ŞAHİN YILMAZ
      Abstract: Peter Stamm writes his works as a close observer of the individual by focusing on the individual’s inner world, behavior patterns, and relationships and by bringing more inner journeys to the fore. The author handles in great detail the thoughts, feelings, and reactions of the individual based on what they experience in their inner world. Therefore, his works have an aspect that is open to psychological questions, and this may also be due to the psychology and psychopathology training the author has received. Stamm chooses individuals who generally believe in a psychological sense that they are at the end of their lives, looking for ways out, wanting to make new beginnings, and totally surrendering or turning inward as his protagonists and uses these characters to actually causes his readers to look for psychological answers. Of course, these answers materialize through the choices the characters in this fictional world make, and the effects from those choices ripple throughout the novel, both within themselves as well as through those around them. The author creates representatives who try to resist the chaos created by the modern world or who symbolize an inbetweenness through their figures who are lost in this chaos. A representative example of this occurs in the novel To the Back of Beyond and thus will be discussed and evaluated here from Freud’s psychodynamic point of view, witnessing an inner journey by concentrating on the inner world. Stamm creates a psychological world in his novel and equips a main figure there, shaping this figure within the framework of his relationship with the people around him and his family. According to Freud’s psychodynamic approach, the character’s desires for liberation and to detach himself from his own life and struggle for years away from his family lead to a process that begins with the dominance of desires and impulses over the individual. From a psychodynamic point of view, the study focuses on how the unconscious field that directs the individual in this novel affects life and the paths on which it leads. The main figure suddenly decides to leave his home and family, and his endless wanderings in the mountains, plains, and forests turn into an inner journey in which the figure tries to find himself. This journey is naturally quite strikingly revealed through the detailed descriptions the author makes, and the figure is dragged from one place to another in this mysterious journey along with all his inner turmoil. From Freud’s psychodynamic point of view, this drift is embodied by figure’s instinctive movements and experiences in his inner world.

  • Silence as a Narrative Strategy in Robert Walser’s Berlin Novels

    • Authors: Maryana YAREMKO; Khrystyna DYAKİV, Nataliia PETRASHCHUK
      Abstract: The purpose of the article is to study silence and its linguistic means of expression in relation to the macro- and micro-structures of literary text. The theoretical foundation of this research involves linguistic and literary studies that consider the communicative, pragmatic, semantic, cultural, and literary-historical aspects of silence and emphasize its difference from quietness, which should be understood as a natural phenomenon. Based on the model of literary communication, we have identified the role of silence in the author-text-reader triad as well as the ways it is realized in the structure and language of literary text. This paper finds within its scope that silence not only occurs as non-speaking, but also as non-meaningful speech that actualizes the semantics of silence in the context of a communicative situation. These two opposite forms of silence come to the forefront in Robert Walser’s (1878-1956) Berlin novels and are subject to a close analysis from the perspectives of macro- and micro-stylistics. The study analyzes the narrative principle of chatting in Walser’s The Tanners (1907), text irony in his The Assistant (1908), and the fragmentary narrative style in his Jakob von Gunten (1909) and establishes that silence is realized both at the thematic level as well as in the structure and language of the text. As a narrative strategy, silence influences the form and content of Walser’s Berlin novels and thus achieves the author’s desired effect on the reader.

  • Religious Language in the Texts of Reich Citizens

    • Authors: Georg SCHUPPENER
      Abstract: This article examines using the Internet whether or not, the extent to which, and in what form Reich citizens use religious language in their texts. To this end, the article will first define religious language in more detail. On the basis of current constitutional protection reports in the Federal Republic of Germany and an evaluation of sources of known Reich citizens, the article has identified a total of 34 Internet domains that will serve as the basis for the investigation. The pilot investigation first examined four lexemes in terms of their distributions in the texts of these domains and showed the religious lexises in a third of the investigated domains to obviously be of no or only secondary importance. This group of domains was not reconsidered in the further investigation with regard to the use of religious language. Another third of the texts showed the religious lexises to be relevant, while the remaining third revealed the religious lexis to even be highly common. The in-depth analysis then proved the frequency of a broader spectrum of religious lexises. The article then exemplified the specific contexts of their uses. With regard to religious argumentation, the article lastly examined the three domains with high frequency religious lexises in more detail. This revealed very different concepts of how religious topics are used to legitimize the ideology of Reich citizens, namely as a justification for völkisch [ethnic] concepts, as higher knowledge, and even as part of Reich citizens’ identity. In the latter case, God-like qualities were attributed to the founder of a specific group of Reich citizens.

  • Facets of Misfortune: Aesthetic Methods of Representing Consciousness in
           the Texts of Annette von Droste-Hülshoff, Evdokiya Rostopchina and Anna

    • Authors: Ksenia KUZMİNYKH
      Abstract: This article analyzes how the consciousness of the feminine figures is represented in the texts Jew’s Beech by Annette von Droste-Hülshoff, Нелюдимка [The Misanthrope] by Evdokiya Rostopchina, and Вечер у камина [An Evening by the Fireplace] by Anna Bunina. Although Jew’s Beech has enjoyed a broad research response, the focus here will be on other aspects. Thetext Нелюдимка [The Misanthrope] by Evdokiya Rostopchina was not translated into German until 2019 and is considered to have been unexplored in international discourse. This also applies to Anna Bunina’s oeuvre with a few exceptions. These facts determine the innovative component of the present contribution. The intended analysis uses the theories of cognitive narratology, combines them with elements of text-oriented analysis, and focuses on the female characters’ ‘mental events’. The article uses close reading method as its method of literary analysis. The representation of consciousness is assumed to be realized explicitly and implicitly in both epic and dramatic texts, with consciousness being marked as the object of the representation in the first form and as a motivating factor that needs to be reconstructed in the latter form. This motivating factor justifies the characters’ verbal, mental, and factual actions, with indicative and symbolic forms also being found for representing consciousness. The study uses the following questions to guide the intended analysis: How has the characters’ consciousness in epic and dramatic texts been aestheticized at the levels of histoire and discours, how are narrative strategies such as intertextual narration used for this, can similarities be identified in the texts of the German and Russian authors in relation to the representation of consciousness, and can discontinuities be identified in the depiction of the inner worlds'

  • On the Translation of Turkisms from Bosnian into German in Hamza
           Humo’s Novel Grozdanin kikot

    • Authors: Sanela MEŠİĆ
      Abstract: This paper analyzes the translation of Turkish loanwords (i.e., Turkisms) from literary works in Bosnian to German. The contemporary Bosnian language is rich in Turkisms that were mostly adopted during the Ottoman reign. The corpus for the analysis was selected from the novel Grozdanin kikot [Grozdana’s Giggle] by Bosnian writer Hamza Humo (1927). The German translation of the novel title was not a literal translation of the original, as the translator Manfred Jähnichen (1958) instead opted for the title Trunkener Sommer [The Drunken Summer], and the novel was a success in German-speaking regions, with many positive reviews subsequently being published in newspapers. The Turkisms in this novel mostly refer to objects and persons, and some of the lexemes have been labelled as archaic, while others are still in everyday use. However, all of these lexemes are considered part of the Bosnian and Herzegovinian culture. Translating culture-specific concepts is often a challenging task. Therefore, this paper aims to analyze the translation strategies that were employed when translating Turkisms from Bosnian to German in this novel. The first phase of the analysis identifies all the lexemes and phrases of Turkish origin and accounts for them in monolingual and bilingual dictionaries. Finally, the study compares the findings to their translation equivalents in the novel. A semantic analysis provides answers in terms of whether Turkisms in Bosnian and Turkisms in German represent false cognates. This research also yields a glossary of Turkisms from this novel with their translation equivalents in German.

  • Onomatopoeia in German Verb Suffixes

    • Authors: Paloma SÁNCHEZ HERNÁNDEZ
      Abstract: This article falls within the framework of lexical semantics and word formation and includes a theoretical framework and an empirical study based on a literary corpus. It aims to analyse onomatopoeia in German verbs with the suffixes ‘-(e)l(n)’ and -‘(e)r(n)’ and to study the behaviour of these verbs in the corpus. The corpus of reference has been extracted from Der goldne Topf by E.T.A. Hoffmann. Due to the richness of the content concerning these verb suffixes, the author has already carried out a study about the iterative aspect of these suffixes in this literary work, and the present paper aims to extent the research with the analysis of the onomatopoeic verbs in it. Specifically, the following topics will be addressed. 1) What is onomatopoeia' 2) What is the relationship between these German verb suffixes and onomatopoeia' 3) How is the frequency of appearance of these suffixes in relation to onomatopoeia quantified in the corpus' 4) What semantic and morphological characteristics are shown by the suffixed verbs that express onomatopoeia' The current study presents a theoretical framework with the aim of analysing onomatopoeia and its relationship with German word formation. Taking this theoretical framework into account, in the empirical part of the study, the corpus is qualitatively and quantitatively analysed, and conclusions are drawn bearing in mind the function of the verbs with the suffixes of interest. R software was used for pre-processing the text needed for generating the corpus. Excel was used for analysis.

  • Medieval Royal Courts and Their Critics: A New Perspective on Courtly
           Romances and Verse Narratives, with an Emphasis on Heinrich der
           Glîchezâre’s Reinhart Fuchs

    • Authors: Albrecht CLASSEN
      Abstract: The topic of court criticism coupled with severe warnings about the dangers of a royal dictator or tyrant was well represented in medieval and early modern literature. Despite our common assumptions about the harmony and idyllic nature of King Arthur’s court and the knights of the Round Table, a closer analysis quickly reveals the horrendous problems vexing medieval society (and our own, perhaps). However, medieval poets were careful not to take off their masks when they depicted evil rulers because they normally depended on their patrons. Nevertheless, the criticism of the evil ruler, and then especially of the criminally minded royal councilor (such as in the much later case of Iago in Shakespeare’s Othello) finds vivid expression in more medieval texts than we might have assumed. After a survey of dramatic cases from pre-modern literature as a basis for the subsequent analysis, this article focuses on the Middle High German version of the Old French Roman de Renart by Heinrich der Glîchezâre (late twelfth century) where the protagonist, the fox Reinhart, operates with astounding intellectual acumen and sophistication to deceive, betray, hurt, and even get his opponents killed without any bad conscience.
