Wissen um Stimmung

Diskurs und Poetik in Robert Musils Die Verwirrungen des Zoglings Torless und Vereinigungen

Wilhelm Fink Verlag 2015

purchase at bookshop.org In his new book, Wissen um Stimmung (Knowledge of Mood), Sergej Rickenbacher, a post-doc at the University of Aachen, examines two works of Robert Musil from the perspective of knowledge and atmosphere/mood. In doing so, his approach differs from traditional readings of Musil and thus sheds new light on his work. Of particular interest are Rickenbacher's exploration of the importance of space and fragrances within Musil's writing.
