Neuere Lyrik. Interkulturelle und interdisziplinäre Studien: Band 8.2. Subjekt und Liminalität in der Gegenwartsliteratur.
Liminality is a sign of the present. Contemporary literature, especially poetry, perceives recent liminal phenomena in a seismographic way. Simultaneously, literary texts have developed various liminal forms and functions. The speak-ing subject, in a state of transition, is primarily affected: Decomposition, dis-solution, fluidity, but also transparency and transformation open its bounda-ries to the Other: to human beings, nature or transcendence. The present volume brings together essays that treat liminality in relation to the thresh-old period as conditio historiae of the present, additionally considering genre transitions and the subject's liminal experiences. The contributions’ focus is on Russian- and German-language poetry, while other Slavic and East Asian literatures as well as other genres, intermedial forms and philosophical per-spectives are treated both separately and comparatively.
The articles were written within the framework of the bilateral project "Ty-pology of the Subject in Russian-Language Poetry 1990-2010" (2015-2018, DFG/RGNF) and the DFG Research Group FOR 2603 “Russian-Language Po-etry in Transition.
