Yvonne Herganes "Die Chamäleondamen" als Generationenroman

  • Yvonne Hergane‘s first novel The Chameleon Ladies can be discussed from several perspectives. On the one hand, it can be read as a generational novel, on the other hand, it can also be read as a women‘s novel in the sense of portraying the history of emancipation of four generations of women. The novel can also be seen as a historical novel, because it covers a historical period of over 120 years and describes the living conditions of four generations of women, three of them living first in Romania and then in Germany, which are also historically conditioned. The novel could therefore also be seen as part of migration literature. This article will explore this complexity of this structure.
