Die "Fiktion des Faktischen". Geschichte als Literatur, exemplarisch dargestellt am Werk des rumäniendeutschen Autors Rene Fülöp Miller "Der heilige Teufel"

  • The research objective of the present article is the book Der heilige Teufel [The Holy Devil], written in the field of cultural history by the Romanian German language author Renë Fülöp Miller, published in 1927 and very well received at the time. Important contemporary voices, for instance Th. Mann, ranked it next to fictional works. Taking into consideration postmodern viewpoints, according to which reality and fiction have become impossible to distinguish and interchangeable, it may be concluded that Miller’s work, in spite of its cultural-historical content, is a historical narrative, its style being subordinated to „documentary fiction”. The depiction of reality is a possible one; Russia’s image during Rasputin’s time is a probable one.
