The figure of Melusine in Fontane’s texts : images, digressions, and lacunae

The Melusines that appear in Fontane’s texts [...] must be read as part of history of citations and refigurations, a history that then revives and flourishes in diluted form around the turn of the century with the trivial myth of the femme fatale. The new context for Fontane’s Melusine is the social construction of the feminine in the context of the conflict over the equality and/or the difference of the sexes, and the currency of certain clichéd versions of this construction. [...] In this essay, I will examine the function that the Melusine figure — as the recasting and rewriting of a myth — assumes in realist texts and, specifically, in the texts of Fontane.
