Dimension2: Contemporary German-Language Literature

KLUGE, Alexander
Alexander Kluge was born in 1932. A multi-talent, he has worked as film maker (starting out with Fritz Lang in Berlin in 1958), lawyer, and writer; in addition to literature, he has—often in collaboration with Oskar Negt—written on political theory. His literary debut was the collection of prose, Lebensläufe, in 1962. In the late 1980s, he turned away from story-telling—just to reemerge as a narrator with his monumental Chronik der Gefühle in 2000. In Die Lücke, die der Teufel läßt, Kluge continues his attempt at merging history, politics, and literature.

Ein deutscher Gelehrter in Persien (A German Scholar in Persia) from Die Lücke, die der Teufel läßt (Frankfurt am Main: Suhrkamp Verlag, 2003) : Vol. 9, No. 1/2
