Crafting Flesh, Crafting the Self: Violence and Identity in Early Nineteenth-century German Literature
Bucknell University Press, 2006 - 280 Seiten
This book analyzes wounded human bodies in early nineteenth-century German literature and traces their connection to changing philosophical models of the self. It argues that literary representations and metaphors of violence against the body not only offer powerful physical referents for a concept of self, but that they also define violence as an integral component of the self.
