Abstract:

The article analyzes four novels by the Swiss authors Max Frisch and Urs Widmer, as well as by the Austrian Thomas Bernhard. In all of them the narration is of the so called “unreliable” kind, which is to be explained by the modern problem of the relation between life and literature and the different ways the texts approach that problem. The conclusion is that during the second half of the 20th century writing and fiction were gradually losing the aura of being “the other” to life which Modernism used to ascribe to them.

Keywords:

unreliable narration; German-language literature after the Second World War; postmodern literature.
