  • Die Geburt des fiktionalen Romans aus dem Geiste des Märchensby Fritz Peter Knapp

    Universitätsverlag Winter 2014; US$ 20.15

    Entgegen einer in der Forschung verbreiteten Ansicht kennt die mittelalterliche Poetik sehr wohl die reine Fiktionalität des Erzählens, beschränkt sie aber auf Fabel und Allegorie (?fabula?), wo bildhaft auf die Wirklichkeit verwiesen wird, und empfiehlt sonst deren unmittelbare Repräsentation (?historia?). Das Ergebnis ist aus unserer Sicht Pseudo-Historie,... more...
