    A closer look at the literary works, essays, letters and diaries of important German exile writers and anti-Nazi dissidents during National Socialism leads to an important observation: that is the increase of references to classical topoi of the Barbarian. Since at least 1933 and the traumatic Nazi book burnings, in German (exile) literature does not only occur a political actualization but also an emphatical radicalization of the reactivated dichotomies of 'civilization/culture' vs. 'the Barbarian' and sometimes more specific of 'the Hellenes' vs. 'the Persians'. Even though numerous literary texts display these dichotomies, in literary criticism a systematic analysis of their semantic implications and their function is still lacking. This study thus aims to present a first overview and interpretation of this noticeable actualization of the above mentioned topoi in German exile literature, particularly in the works of Klaus Mann.

    Some errors are simply annoying, others are productive. Errors are productive when they function as triggers for processes that let the mistake appear as a chance to discover new perspectives or approaches to a solution. Productive errors suggest that the criteria for judging what seems right or wrong themselves should and have to be understood as mutable, since cultural processes of development cannot be thought in any other way. The article investigates what the productivity of errors can imply in the field of literature. Both literary examples discussed (Benjamin, Guggenmos) make recourse to the idea of a childhood of language: What might appear as an error to adults can indicate the beginning of a productive, linguistically sensitive engagement with the world for children (or for adults who can carry their minds back to that condition).

    Robert Walser's text "The Walk" enacts a narrative that is genuinely describable as one 'on the border' to non-narrativity. This paper takes a look at how "The Walk" uses indicators of narrativity / narrativeness in order to subvert them, especially by dissolving narrative times. This leads to narrative performativity. Its narrative techniques are mirrored in the very Walserian self-description of eating a meal. In the central episode of the "The Walk" the protagonist eats "pieces" (German "Stücke"), what in Walser's terminology means both sweets and narratives ("Prosastückli"). This leads to a circle of intertextuality, in which the writer reads his own text and re-writes it at the same time. Nonetheless, "The Walk" is not a pure manifestation of self-reflexivity because its non-systematic narration is undeniable. Walser's "The Walk" formulates and follows a poetics of "narrating-as-writing" which highlights both performativity and materiality of the act of narration.

    O artigo aborda as experiências fotografias e narrativas do fotojornalista austríaco Mario Baldi, que trabalhou entre os índios brasileiros na primeira metade do século XX. Baldi escreveu um livro sobre sua convivência com os Carajá e publicou tanto no Brasil quanto na Alemanha. O objetivo dessa análise é comparar as duas versões e abordar as inovações e limites das representações que Baldi faz da alteridade cultural brasileira, influenciadas por um romantismo etnológico compartilhado por alguns estudiosos brasileiros e alemães, denominado nos anos 1940 e 1950 de indiologia brasileira. This article concerns photographic and narrative experiences of the Austrian photographer Mario Baldi, who worked among Brazilian Indians in the first half of the twentieth century. Baldi wrote a book about his relation with the Carajá and published it both in Brazil and Germany. This analysis aims to compare both versions of the book and consider the innovations and limits of the representations made by Baldi about the cultural otherness in Brazil. These representations, shared by both Brazilian and German authors, were influenced by an ethnological romantism, the so-called Brazilian Indiology in the 1940's and 1950's.
