Historiografische Metafiktion bei Ilija Trojanow und Thomas Stangl

Volume 40, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0065-1273



In this article two texts are compared which have been read as postmodern historical novels: Ilija Trojanows () und Thomas Stangls (). The novels both deal with history and historical facts. However, although both (historical) novels display meta-fictional elements and deal with 19th century colonialism, their narrative structure differs essentially, as illustrated, for instance, by their different narrative perspectives. This paper investigates these structural differences by clarifying their relation to the meta-fictional narrative.
