Abstract:

"Types and stereotypes" is the fourth and last volume of apath-breaking multinational literary history that incorporates innovativefeatures relevant to the writing of literary history in general. Instead ofoffering a traditional chronological narrative of the period 1800-1989, the"History of the Literary Cultures of East-Central Europe" approachesthe region's literatures from five complementary angles, focusing onliterature'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 ofthe project is to challenge the self-enclosure of national literatures intraditional literary histories, to contextualize them in a regionalperspective, and to recover individual works, writers, and minorityliteratures that national histories have marginalized or ignored.

"Types and stereotypes" brings together articles that rethink thefigures of National Poets, figurations of the Family, Women, Outlaws, andOthers, as well as figures of Trauma and Mediation. As in the previousthree volumes, the historical and imaginary figures discussed hereconstantly change and readjust to new political and social conditions. AnEpilogue complements the basic history, focusing on the contradictorytransformations of East-Central European literary cultures after 1989. Thisvolume will be of interest to the region's literary historians, to studentsand teachers of comparative literature, to cultural historians, and to thegeneral public interested in exploring the literatures of a rich andresourceful cultural region.
