Martin Walser: Die Frauengestalten in ’Jagd’. Wunschproduktion oder Mangel?
Växjö University, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, School of Humanities.
1998 (German)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

The protagonists in Walser's work are male antiheroes, incapable of adapting to the competitive postwar German society. Their only refuge is at home within marriage. This conservative portrayal of relationships has made some critics call Walser misogynist. In the novel "Jagd" (Hunt) from 1988 Walser describes six women from three different generations, all with different backgrounds. This study focuses on the portrayal of these women. Can the women only be regarded as a virgin or a whore (a target for male desire) or is it possible to find a problematized gender identity? The analysis tries to point out structures and motives that show that Walser's intention goes beyond a simple affirmation of the traditional stereotype.
