ISBN 1572411309.Ingeborg Bachmann (1926-1973) was one of the most significant post-war women writers in German language literature and remains one of the most important writers of our time. Over thirty years after her death, her work continues to attract the critical attentions of a wide general readership as well as scholars from many different disciplines, not least because her poems, short stories, critical essays, radio plays and novels deal with issues that continue to haunt contemporary culture: history, gender, exile, war, memory and the Holocaust. A poet, writer and trained philosopher, Bachmann relentlessly proved what she believed was the potential of language and writing to raise awareness and effect change in a culture marked by violence against women, individual and collective trauma, the effacement of memory, the forgetting of atrocities, and the silencing of victims. The multifaceted, interdisciplinary approaches to Ingeborg Bachmann's work make this collection appealing and relevant to both critics and scholars of Ingeborg Bachmann and to everyone interested in critical theory and contemporary culture.

  16. Image in Outline. Reading Lou Andreas-Salomé. New York, London: Continuum 2012. This book introduces the reader to Lou Andreas-Salomé's significant engagement with modern thought. Through detailed explorations of some of her major texts, Brinker-Gabler examines Andreas-Salomé's contriubtions to contemporary discourses on meaning, perception, memory, and the unconscious. Situating her analyses within Andreas-Salomé's historical, social, and intellectual contexts, this new reading utilizes a theoretical frame informed by thinkers such as Benjamin, Bergson, and Freud, and current theoretical perspectives by Irigaray, Grosz, and Kristeva. Brinker-Gabler argues that Andreas-Salomé––committed as she was to the "double direction" of rigorous thought and individual nuancing––refocused dominant visions of gender, sexuality, culture, religion, and creativity through a female lens. In a "disenchanted world" (Weber), Andreas-Salomé offered an image epistemology or "aesthetics of b(u)idling," as Brinker-Gabler calls it, that seeks to retrieve the multilayered past embedded in individuals and cultural forms, thus providing positive accounts of sexual and cultural difference, experience, narcissism, and creativity in modern life. - Paperback edition: August 2014 -
