Symbole zu unsicheren und mehrdeutigen Identitäten im Roman "Ascheregen" von Joachim Wittstock

  • Joachim Wittstock uses a large number of symbols to illustrate the ideas of his novel Ascheregen. His characters' unclear feeling of identity due to the war troubles is a key topic of his text. Thats why a lot of important symbols that refer to this topic can be identified. This study deals with the unsettled front line and the mixed uniform parts but also with the fissured lime tree and the parly loss of the eyesight as examples which can be connected with the feeling of identity of some of the characters. Besides the use of symbols Wittstock also builts on the mix of real facts and fiction. This way he creates a vagueness that can be connected with the identity topic too and that is dealt with in this study.
