Bilanz-Warum? – Retrospektive-Wieso? : Betrachtungen zu Joachim Wittstocks Erzählung „Karussellpolka“

  • The present article written by Ch. Klein on the occasion of Joachim Wittstock’s 70th birthday concentrates on a kind of balance, starting from the story Karussellpolka of the writer from Sibiu. Wittstock wrote the above mentioned story at the age of 40 and, consciously or not, he suggests the necessity of each of us to make the balance of his/her own life as soon as possible. Ch. Klein regards the story Karussellpolka adequate to this purpose, i.e. for balance, as it is the only prose narrative which deals with such a balance, not only generally as a human condition, but also with regard to the community of the Saxons of Transylvania to which Joachim Wittstock belongs.
