'Kult' und 'show' im Großherzogtum : Raum- und Repräsentationssemantiken in Thomas Manns "Königliche Hoheit"

  • "Königliche Hoheit", Thomas Mann's second novel, is as replete with descriptions of interiors, paintings, decorations and other spatial features as it is obsessed with the very concept of 'representation'. The complex interplay of 'space' and 'signification' that underlies this text has not received much scholarly attention. This paper attempts to elucidate how "Königliche Hoheit" interweaves descriptions of space(s) and thorny semiotic issues. In the process, it seeks to show that the novel, far from being a harmless 'fairytale' grounded in Mann's own biography, is suffused with exclusionary ideology.
