Modern Austrian Prose. Interpretations and Insights. Volume II
Edited and Introduced by Paul F. Dvorak
Volume II continues the goal of introducing readers to significant works of modern Austrian prose within the broader field of German-language literature. Written in English with German reference material appended in order to appeal to the widest possible audience, the articles collected here cover major works by contemporary writers. Counted among the well-established authors who could not be included in the first volume are such notable writers as Norbert Gstrein, Elisabeth Reichart, Erich Hackl, Barbara Frischmuth, and Gert Jonke. This group is complemented by a cohort of more recent authors who have established themselves within Austria and beyond within the last twenty years. They include, among others, Doron Rabinovici, Lilian Faschinger, Gloria Kaiser, Anna Mitgutsch, Paulus Hochgatterer, Marlene Streeruwitz, Kathrin Röggla, and Dimitre Dinev. All of these authors are linked by language, history, and culture that ties them to a distinctly Austrian perspective. Reflecting the strong presence of the female voice within contemporary Austrian letters, roughly half of the authors represented are female. --
Contributors to the volume are highly respected scholars within the fields of Austrian and German studies both in the United States and abroad. Almost all of the works discussed are presently available in English translation. In sum, the authors, works, and contributors commentary on them reflect the richness and diversity of the Austrian tradition.
