Book chapter

Wie wird Geschichte evident? Tolstojs „Krieg und Frieden“ als Experiment historischen Erzählens

P. 37-49.

The radicalization of the poetics of historical narrative by Lev Tolstoy is examined under five aspects: 1) defamiliarization of the visual perspective on war, 2) conception of history as "movement", 3) interdependence of fiction and philosophy of history, 4) conception of the historical event, 5) competencies of historical actors. In addition to "War and Peace", Tolstoy's stories about the Crimean War and other works are in the focus.
