Bachmann, the Myth:
Between Staging and Self-staging

Ingeborg Bachmann was denigrated as a ‘fallen poet’ and hailed as a precursor of feminist critiques of patriarchy. The aim of this volume is not to write the biography of the poet anew, but rather to examine the media images, unstudied readings, and scholarly interpretations of the writer’s work, which still continue to shape public perception of Ingeborg Bachmann to the present day. In German.
