Example text

When he urges the leading exponent of Italian Futurism, Filippo Tommaso Marinetti, to abandon hackneyed similes in favour of more direct means of evocation (SÄPL, p. 117) and when he enjoins his fellow authors – in the manifesto that he issued under the title An Romanautoren und ihre Kritiker. Berliner Programm – to replace such abstract terms as “Zorn”, “Liebe” and “Verachtung” with a precise description of developments in the manner of a psychiatrist (SÄPL, pp. 120-21), then he is clearly looking for ways to break through the shroud of conventional discourse and let the objects and experiences of the material world speak for themselves.

Der Begriff der “Moderne” und seine Anwendung auf das Werk Alfred Döblins (bis 1933) (Tübingen: Max Niemeyer, 1997), pp. 163-91. Cf. Hoock, Modernität als Paradox, pp. 166-68 and 187-88.

Metaphysical Speculation and the Fascination of the Real 25 focus is on an unflinching depiction of ruthless human behaviour and – leaving aside that moment of the fantastic which brings the melancholic Emperor Ferdinand face to face with a demonic representative of the natural order in the final chapter – any sense of a transcendental perspective on the natural world is absent; but by the same token, human behaviour is often evoked here in metaphorical terms which firmly relate it to a conception of natural processes as raw, brutal and primeval.

In Auseinandersetzung mit der Psychoanalyse Freuds stattfindet: Ich will sagen, mir hat persönlich Freud nichts Wunderbares gebracht. Dann mußte ich aber aus den Anstalten, die mir lieb und heimisch geworden waren, hinaus. Das Dunkel, das um diese Kranken war, wollte ich lichten helfen. Die psychische Analyse, fühlte ich, konnte es nicht tun. Man muß hinein in das Leibliche, aber nicht in die Gehirne, vielleicht in die Drüsen, den Stoffwechsel. (SLW, S. 93) Hinter diesem Eindringen in das „Leibliche“, das gleichzeitig eine Flucht vor zermürbenden Analysen der Psyche bedeutet, liegt ein Schlüsselmoment nicht nur im medizinischen Werdegang, sondern auch für das poetologische Selbstverständnis Döblins begründet.
