The article shows a change in the review of recent contemporary literature, especially of narrative genres. In addition to the cultural modeling of time, specific spatial configurations are an issue, too. Its precursors are located in colonial literature in 1900 and refer to a progressive internal differentiation of identity features. For the survey of this contention the following novels have been used : Gustav Frenssen : Peter Moors Fahrt nach Südwest (1906), Wilhelm Muster : Der Tod kommt ohne Trommel (1980), Philip K. Dick : Das Orakel vom Berge (1962), Thorsten Becker : Schönes Deutschland (1996) und Marcus Hammerschmidt : PolyPlay (2002).
