Self Displaced Person. Peter Szondi's Problematic Judaism
Audio recording: Andreas Isenschmid on Judaism in the life and work of Peter Szondi
The talk considers the place of Judaism in the life and work of the literary scholar Peter Szondi (1929-1971). Andreas Isenschmid interprets Szondi's career and works, in particular the studies on Hölderlin, Benjamin, and Celan, as covert deliberation on Judaism. Andreas Isenschmid is a literary critic for the NZZ on Sunday. He is working on a monograph which he will present in part on this evening.
