Klar und dunkel: Zu Stilformen im Werk von Peter Szondi und Jean Bollack

Christoph König


The article focuses on questions of form and style in the essays of Peter Szondi and Jean Bollack. Style in literary criticism reveals itself as a methodological mode for rendering the individuality of literary texts. This argument takes into account the relationship of analysis and persona of the critic, as well as the notions of clarity and darkness in writing about literature, with Szondi and Bollack representing two distinct poles on the scale between clarity and darkness. As it turns out, obscuritas can be a means of being precise, clarity a means of engaging the reader in providing for more precision.
