Wie verhandeln deutsch-jüdische Schriftstellerinnen Weiblichkeit, Judentum und Großstadterfahrung? Godela Weiss-Sussex zeigt, wie in der Überkreuzung der Diskurse mehrdimensionale Entwürfe persönlicher und gesellschaftlicher Positionierung der ‚deutschen Jüdin‘ entstehen. Im Gegensatz zur männlichen oder christlichen Außenperspektive geht es hier um Auseinandersetzungen von Frauen mit der eigenen place. Exemplarisch werden eine völkerpsychologische Abhandlung von Else Croner sowie Romane von Auguste Hauschner, Grete Meisel-Hess und Elisabeth Landau einer neuen Lektüre unterzogen. Die diskurshistorische Untersuchung, die sich auf drei Kernfragen der Moderne - Weiblichkeit, Judentum und Großstadterfahrung - konzentriert, verbindet sich mit einem philologisch-hermeneutischen Ansatz: Produktionsästhetische Fragestellungen nach den Strukturen und Strategien der Texte geben Einsicht in die Möglichkeiten literarischer Verhandlung der ‚deutschen Jüdin‘ durch jüdische Schriftstellerinnen in der Moderne und legen die Bedeutung ihrer Werke als wichtige Zeugnisse literarischer Selbstpositionierung in einer Zeit rapiden Wandels frei.

By Max Haberich

Arthur Schnitzler wird bis heute als der Dichter literarischer Grazie und unverbindlicher Erotik betrachtet. In Wirklichkeit zeigt sich bereits in seinen frühen Dramen beißende Sozialkritik an der bürgerlichen Doppelmoral seiner Zeit und an der Ausbeutung junger Frauen. Wie kaum ein anderer entlarvte er die wohlhabenden, unbeschäftigten Lebemänner und die Leere vieler zwischenmenschlicher Beziehungen.
Max Haberich hat an der Universität Cambridge über Schnitzler promoviert, hat die Quellen dort und im Literaturarchiv Marbach durchforstet, vor allem auch jene, die in den bisherigen Schnitzler-Biografien noch nicht berücksichtigt werden konnten – etwa die ausführliche Korrespondenz mit seiner Frau Olga. Dadurch ist es Max Haberich möglich, den Jahrhundertautor in einem völlig neuen Licht zu zeigen: als sozialkritischen Autor, der sich über Jahrzehnte mit seiner jüdischen Herkunft auseinandersetzte und mit messerscharfer Beobachtung den stetig zunehmenden Antisemitismus in den Blick nahm.
