Summary
"Exile is as old as humanity itself but a radically new fate for the 'novice' exile, who falls into a world about which personal experience can tell him nothing. He does, however, know a great number of stories--myths, legends, allegories, biblical or historical accounts--about exile. The novice's search for a foothold initiates a learning process in which the exilic tradition assumes a major role. The present book captures this learning process: it is a cultural history of exile as it was experienced by thousands of German and Austrian writers and intellectuals who opposed National Socialism: among them Brecht, Canetti, Seghers, Remarque, the Manns, and Ludwig Marcuse. It shows how, slowly, exile becomes a reality through the growing awareness of--and reference to--the exemplary figures of a shared fate. Scores of fellow travelers, from the mythic figures Odysseus and Ahasverus ('The Eternal Jew') to writers such as Heinrich Heine and Victor Hugo, frame the experience of exile, imbuing it with meaning, giving it depth, and even elevating it to a 'High Moral Office.' They frequently make appearances in the narratives of the Nazi-era exiles. The Russian-American exile poet Joseph Brodsky called writers in exile 'retrospective and retroactive beings.' What their retrospective gazes yield as they search for meaning in banishment is at the heart of this book."--Back cover
