Example text

By creating an interdependence between personal, subjective essayistic commentary and the literary text, she undermines traditional generic categories and breaks down what she considers to be an artificial distinction between life and art. The unique position Christa Wolf enjoys today, both in her own country and in the West, is largely due to the moral integrity she has displayed in her personal life and in her writing. Pursuing questions of personal conscience, she has criticized not only the policies of the West but increasingly those of the East as well.

As a consequence, she has come to be regarded as a voice of public conscience. Clearly Wolf's national and international reputation affords her special status within the GDR. Thus while the Party has the ultimate authority, Christa Wolf has become a force to be reckoned with. And that she is forcing a reckoning can be seen in her recent bout with the censors. 38 Ironically, Wolf's position in the GDR today is the outgrowth of another function that often falls to literature in socialist countries: in the absence of an open public sphere, political and social issues are often debated in the literary arena.

Andfinallyhe remembers his cynical response to the promise of a new and better social order: We idled about all through the summer and saw exactly what a mess the grown-ups had managed to make of everything, with all their cleverness and knowing better. We just laughed aloud at the posters which told us everything was going to be better and different. Who was going to make it different, we wondered. The same people who had got us into this mess? Our school opened again in the autumn. Our old Nazi song-books were still in our lockers.
