Example text

I think of him when someone who is just beginning to write gives me a manuscript to read. These days, by the way, young people don’t seem to be writing prose-Hans Kaufmann: Let's talk about 'prose'. Allow me to indulge in a little crude philology. Citing Thomas Mann, you call the ‘prose author' the otic who ‘murmurs the spell of the imperfect'. Yet that was how Thomas Mann 20 THE FOURTH DIM EN SIO N described the Erziihler - the story-writer - whom he understood in the more or less ‘traditionalist' sense.

But that doesn’t change the fact that real prose is something quite different. It should do what it alone can do. This need not necessarily be ‘switching THF FOURTH DIM ENSION 7 the emphasis to inner processes’ ___ Why do authors exist at all, if they vanish, if they dissolve into what at bottom is a highly abstract and mechanistic fiction that claims to reflect reality? 1 mean there never has been an author truly able to ‘reflect’ reality, has there? Reflection is a physical and mechanical process.

In saying this, I am well aware that ‘inner authenticity’ is not a literary category that means something to everyone, like ‘positive hero’, ‘conflict’, ‘the comic’ or even ‘plot’ (by the way, the German word for ‘plot’, Fabcl, used to mean a made-up story, as opposed to ‘true account’). In this sense, the plot can on occasion be an obstacle to creating precisely that inner authenticity (genuineness, credibility) which you can immediately spot though you may find it hard to define - in a piece of prose writing.
