Notes

Abstract: For over twenty-five years, Volker Braun was one of the most prolific and controversial writers in the former German Republic. This study posits Braun's use of literary references as a journey through literature that resembles a type of self-imposed internal philosophical exile. Literature assumes an increasingly important role for the author. Braun's intertextual references migrated from the programmatic use of the mandated literary heritage to a wandering through the history of literature. The resultant literary works are an external manifestation of the author's inner turmoil.
