Second Book

The analysis of Ernst Jünger’s accounts of his World War I experiences reconstructs narrative structures which reaffirm interactional patterns of violence and psycho-trauma and thus counteract the processes of mentally and aesthetically working-through experiences of violence. The concept of “borderline literary interaction” serves as interaction-theoretical basis of the reconstructive analysis.

This approach of interaction-theoretical and psychological text analysis constitutes one of the two main pillars of the multi-method design of Literary and Media Interaction Research. It thus complements qualitative-empirical interaction research with readers and authors.

The Jünger-analysis continues to pursue the main research interest in how individuals and societies work-through experiences and occurrences of violence by way of aesthetic interaction.
