Abstract:

"Types and stereotypes" is the fourth and last volume of a
path-breaking multinational literary history that incorporates innovative
features relevant to the writing of literary history in general. Instead of
offering a traditional chronological narrative of the period 1800-1989, the
"History of the Literary Cultures of East-Central Europe" approaches
the region's literatures from five complementary angles, focusing on
literature's participation in and reaction to key political events,
literary periods and genres, the literatures of cities and sub-regions,
literary institutions, and figures of representation. The main objective of
the project is to challenge the self-enclosure of national literatures in
traditional literary histories, to contextualize them in a regional
perspective, and to recover individual works, writers, and minority
literatures that national histories have marginalized or ignored.

"Types and stereotypes" brings together articles that rethink the
figures of National Poets, figurations of the Family, Women, Outlaws, and
Others, as well as figures of Trauma and Mediation. As in the previous
three volumes, the historical and imaginary figures discussed here
constantly change and readjust to new political and social conditions. An
Epilogue complements the basic history, focusing on the contradictory
transformations of East-Central European literary cultures after 1989. This
volume will be of interest to the region's literary historians, to students
and teachers of comparative literature, to cultural historians, and to the
general public interested in exploring the literatures of a rich and
resourceful cultural region.
