Allereinfachste Sätze. Kleine Narratologie der zeitgenössischen japanischen Literatur


Gebhardt, L (2009). Allereinfachste Sätze. Kleine Narratologie der zeitgenössischen japanischen Literatur. Asiatische Studien / Études Asiatiques, 63(3.2009):699-721.

Abstract

This article explores characteristic narrational contents, styles and structures of recent Japanese literature. Provided that narrational concepts of Heisei Literature have hardly been explored, I will argue that after Murakami Haruki was first published in the early 1980s, and with the paradigm shift from junbungaku to "J-Bungaku" in the late 1990s, Heisei Literature has consistently produced “superflat narratives”. An example for a superflat narration is Kawakami Hiromi’s “Furudōgu Nakano shōten” , translated into German in 2009. Kawakami’s text offers narrational flatness to a global readership that is indulging in the pleasures of the moratorium culture of contemporary Japan; the German version offers yet another aspect of narrational pleasures: the ethnolect “J-Deutsch” (J-German).
