Sample text

Und eines Wiederfindens’ (158) (the whole myth of a childhood . . and of a rediscovery) as Martin recognizes his yearning to be, is not, however, merely a personal myth, but carries with it the association of a greater past. Martin and Franza’s cottage becomes representative of the lost Habsburg Empire, within which one could identify with a part or with the whole, now modernized but with no ¨ name. The cottage is ‘Uberbleibsel eines imposanten Besitzes . . wo man auch zu den Großen oder den Kleinen geh¨oren konnte, und das hier in Galicien war einmal groß gewesen, ein Reich und ein Name, und jetzt gab es das nicht mehr, daf¨ur elektrisches Licht und fließendes Wasser’ (158) (a small remnant of an imposing property .

The killing of the camel, the bridegroom’s gift, appears as a type of sacrilege, both against the camel, and the sand, drenched in its blood: ‘Ich kann nicht weiter . . ich will nicht durch das Blut, durch diesen Sand, der von seinem Blut . . sie watete durch den blutenden Sand’ (280).

Indeed, the point at which the narrator makes her reference is carefully chosen to undermine any simple 38 Ingeborg Bachmann: the Todesarten prose parallels between the symbolic figure of the servant and any one of the protagonists. The reference is linked to the concept of Galicia and with it, of love: ‘Heim nach Galicien, Matth. 12. 20. Wie unwiderstehlich ist Galicien, die Liebe’ (149). (Home to Galicia, Matthew 12. 20. ) Thus the Righteous Servant becomes equated with an ideal, Galicia, that no longer exists, and is presented as being part of a yearning for a past and a past love which is now lost.
