Tanja Angela Kunz , "Sehnsucht nach dem Guten" (Wilhelm Fink Verlag, 2017)


In her new book Longing for the Good. The Relationship between Literature and Ethics in the Work of Peter Handke (Wilhelm Fink Verlag, 2017), Tanja Angela Kunz, a postdoc at the Humboldt University of Berlin, analyzes the work of the Austrian contemporary writer Peter Handke from a new perspective: By consulting philosophical theories about the relationship between ethics and aesthetics she achieves a new understanding of Handke's very specific style of writing. Within this context, Kunz's observation of different patterns of representations of the good within Handke's work is especially interesting.
