Download Kultur und Identität in Kate Chopins "The Awakening" (German by Martin Holz PDF

By Martin Holz

Examensarbeit aus dem Jahr 2001 im Fachbereich Amerikanistik - Literatur, observe: 1,0, Universität zu Köln, 104 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Fünfzig Jahre lang, von der Publikation 1899 bis 1956, ist von The Awakening in Literaturwissenschaft, Literaturgeschichte und Literaturkritik kaum Notiz genommen worden. Eine irrationale Protagonistin, die bis in den Tod auf ihrer Identität insistiert, dabei scheinbar nicht auf die "menschliche Herde" angewiesen ist und darüber dennoch nicht hysterisch oder psychotisch wird, stand ebenso im Widerspruch zum naturalisierenden viktorianischen Diskurs über Weiblichkeit, wie die fiktionale Erkundung des Komplexes Kultur, Sexualität und Tod Illusionen zu demontieren drohte, die als gesellschaftliches Fundament fungierten und bis heute fungieren. Dass diese konterdiskursive Infragestellung kulturerhaltender Ordnungsphantasmen zu einer massiven Verdrängung des Textes - nicht zuletzt unter dem Signum der Kulturversagung - geführt hat, überrascht kaum. Der Tenor zeitgenössischer Rezensionen bezeugt eine signifikante Ablehnung:"[...] it leaves one ill of human nature" (Awakening: 163), "its unpleasant glimpses of sensuality are repellent" (Awakening: 166), "gilded airborne dirt and dust" (Awakening: 167), "an primarily vulgar tale" (Awakening: 168), "unhealthily introspective and morbid in feeling" (Awakening: 170), "unwholesome in its impact" (Awakening: 172).
Es handelt sich dabei um viel mehr als nur um "vestiges of Victorian prudery" (Walker 1993: 141). Eine derart vehemente, mehr moralisch als ästhetisch begründete Ablehnung lässt vermuten, dass der Roman an neuralgische Punkte der Kultur wie auch der menschlichen Identität rührt. Es geht um Fragen, die nicht gestellt werden dürfen. Dass Nietzsche und Freud sich mit ähnlichen Reaktionen konfrontiert sahen, ist ebenso wenig ein Zufall wie die Tatsache, dass ihre Gedanken sehr produktiv für die Interpretation des Textes genutzt werden können. Welche diskursiven Praktiken im Blick auf Kanonbildung und Zensur wurden aktiviert, um das subversive énoncé des Textes zu verdrängen?
