About this product
- DescriptionWritten during the vibrant crisis years of the Weimar Republic, Alfred Doblin's <i>Berlin Alexanderplatz</i> is a fascinating examination of the gradual disintegration of Germany in the aftermath of the Great War and in the shadow of a nascent National Socialism. This study engages the seminal image of the prostitute, the commodified woman, as a central and dominant motif in Doblin's work. Through this intersection of sex, gender and ecomics, the author scrutinizes the larger perspective of German culture through the lens of its suppressed underclasses and considers how the politics of language both construct and constrain woman's identity in this society. The true history of the Weimar Republic, therefore, is read through Doblin's portraits of prostitutes and petty criminals, homosexuality and <i>Lustmord</i>.
