Ambiguous Aggression in German Realism and Beyond: Flirtation, Passive Aggression, Domestic Violence
Bloomsbury Academic, October 2019


Ambiguous Aggression in German Realism and Beyond looks at three interlocking forms of social violence–flirtation, passive aggression, and domestic violence. In order to understand their circulation, it traces their literary-historical genealogy in German realism and modernism–in scenes from Annette von Droste-Hülshoff, Adalbert Stifter, Theodor Storm, Theodor Fontane, Robert Walser, and Franz Kafka, covering a historical period from the middle of the 19th century to the early decades of the 20th century.
