The reader as an enemy? The Thomas Bernhard case

Michele Vangi’s essay ‘The reader as an enemy? The Thomas Bernhard case’ (in German) appeared in the miscellaneous volume Konzept der Rezeptionedited by Carolin Fischer and Brunhilde Wehiger. The book is the result of a trilateral research conference held at Villa Vigoni and explores theoretical concepts of reception aesthetics.

Starting with individual cases, it analyses strategies for guiding reception and aesthetic influence. Reconstructions of reception studies in Italy and France complete the critical overview.
