Beyond World Literature
Author: Ottmar Ette
Beginning with Erich Auerbach’s reflections on the Goethean concept of World Literature, Ottmar Ette unfolds the theory and practice of Literatures of the World. Today, only those literary theories that are oriented upon a history of movement are still capable of doing justice to the confusing diversity of highly dynamic, worldwide transformations. This is because they examine transareal pathways in the field of literature. This volume captures literary processes of exchange and transformation between the Mediterranean, Atlantic and Pacific as well as the interplay of different ways of narrating space and time. Thus, this volume speaks from a fractal point of view and unfolds multiple perspectives. Literatures of the World allows the reader to think in different logical frameworks at the same time, therefore shaping our future on the basis of the diversity of humankind.
El discurso interior en las novelas de Javier Marías: los ojos de la mente ofrece una perspectiva novedosa del universo narrativo de uno de los autores contemporáneos más destacados de España. Con el fin de ahondar en el origen y significado de los modos del discurso interior (psiconarración, monólogo o fluir de conciencia) en sus ficciones, este libro presenta una interpretación crítica de todas sus novelas, desde El siglo (1983) hasta Berta Isla (2017).

El discurso interior en las novelas de Javier Marías: los ojos de la mente offers a fresh perspective on the narrative universe of one of Spain’s most distinguished contemporary authors. In order to delve into the origin and meaning of inner speech modes (psychonarration, monologue or stream of consciousness) in his fictions, this book presents a critic interpretation of all his novels, from El siglo (1983) to Berta Isla (2017).
Founded in 1972, this series welcomes publications that further develop the field of German-language literature(s) and cultural studies from 1700 onwards. This includes themed-anthologies and monographs offering state-of-the-art research, as well as critical editions, primary sources or collections.

Our mission remains to publish high quality research including new discussions of established authors, research on heretofore neglected masterpieces, as well as the consideration of German literary studies as a discipline both within and beyond the academy. Consequently, the series offers a venue for a variety of genres rediscovered in literature and cultural studies, including the study of the essay, literary biographies and periodicals. We also welcome studies in which German literature is treated in connection with other disciplines such as media studies, the fine arts, as well as the natural sciences.

All submissions are subject to a double blind peer review process prior to publication.

Authors are cordially invited to submit proposals and/or full manuscripts to the publisher at BRILL, Masja Horn.


Après avoir interrogé la notion freudienne d’ Unheimlich, je procède à une revue des représentations de La dernière bande après 2000 en tentant de les considérer sous l’ angle de l’ Unheimlich. Une expérience personnelle avec la pièce de Beckett permet d’ introduire mon affect subjectif.

In: Samuel Beckett Today / Aujourd'hui


Jacques Osinski s’ entretient avec Bruno Clément des deux textes de Beckett qu’ il a récemment mis en scène en France (Cap au pire en 2017 et La dernière bande en 2019). C’ est pour lui l’ occasion de préciser qu’ il a voulu, dans ces deux spectacles comme dans ceux qu’ il prépare et qu’ il évoque aussi, être attentif à la musicalité du texte de Beckett comme à sa proximité avec la danse.
