"The letters convey a picture of Broch's political discussions with Kahler (World War II, the invention of the atomic bomb, post-war Germany, the founding of Israel, the role of the intellectual). Other topics covered in the letters include the intentions of his novels and his theory of mass hysteria as well as the cultural-historical essay "Hofmannsthal and his Time". The letters also reveal personal details - old Austrian retrospectives as well as current friendships with women and the efforts of his sponsors to promote his fame."--Publisher's website

The inward turn of narrative by Erich Kahler( Book )

23 editions published between 1970 and 2017 in English and held by 910 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Erich Kahler sees cultural history as a subtle process in which reality plays upon consciousness and consciousness itself is forever transforming reality. He traces the ebb and flow of this relationship by studying changes in narrative form from its beginnings in the Gilgamesh Cycle to the end of the eighteenth century. The general direction is toward a growing inwardness, he finds; what takes place is an expansion of consciousness as man constantly draws outer space, the contents of a more and more complex world, into what Rilke called Weltinnenraum, "inner space."Originally published in 1973.
