The study reveals not only a complex and varied spatial symbolism, but also that space itself is a thematic concern in Fontanes writing. His texts portray human beings relationships with their worlds, and how and to what end they invest their environment with meaning. Fontanes novels and travel writings emerge as profoundly reflexive discourses on art and its function for the individual. Michael J. White completed his Ph.

The study reveals not only a complex and varied spatial symbolism, but also that space itself is a thematic concern in Fontane's writing. His texts portray human beings' relationships with their worlds, and how and to what end they invest their environment with meaning. Fontane's novels and travel writings emerge as profoundly reflexive discourses on art and its function for the individual. Michael J.
