Abstract  

After reviewing the reasons why Kafka, in his short story “Prometheus”, produces four versions of the myth of Prometheus, it is concluded that the text refuses to become a parable in any simple way. Instead, it pushes the act of interpretation itself into the foreground, in this sense it is a parable about interpretation, which is not about the one and undividable truth but about texts.

Abstract  

One of Faulkner’s Yoknapatawpha novels and short stories that pays special attention to the production of water symbolism is his The Sound and the Fury. Water in all its physical conditions and manifestations (branch, river, rain, tears, ice, wet drawers, wet clothes, bathing, bathroom, dropsy, mud, etc.) is present in Benjy’s, Quentin’s, Jason’s and Dilsey’s discourses and, consequently, acquires different symbolic meanings. They can be read in the context of purity, restoration, female sexuality, resistance/subversion and control/manipulation.

Abstract  

This paper will show that Kafka, in his enigmatic short story, “A Visit to a Mine,” depicted the concept of identification in a literary manner, similar to the way Freud articulated identification in his psychoanalytic writings. It will be argued that the subjects found in “A Visit to a Mine,” and who were used by Kafka in his quest for personal and professional identification, were among the most important European writers of the early twentieth century. This group of authors with whom Kafka identified included many highly influential figures, such as; Gorki, von Hofmannsthal, H. Mann and Anatole France.

The aim of this paper is to demonstrate how M. Krleža takes advantage of the adaptabilities of multilingualism in his short story Hrvatski bog Mars. Soldiers from different linguistic areas served in the Austro-Hungarian multilingual army who needed to acquire the military language as well. However, establishing conversations with officers and soldiers of other languages was detained by misunderstandings and incomprehension, which lead to tragic and tragicomic consequences. The different social dialects created situations for talking at cross purposes, while the voided multilingualism of the upper classes signed cultural decadence, the coming of the end.

Stream of consciousness is the manifestation of verbality in writing. Through the narrative technique of stream of consciousness, the writer has the opportunity to use the a very personal tone. This study examines three short stories by Valery Larbaud, the French writer and translator, which are characterized by this unique symbiosis of verbality and orality. This narrative technique is mainly suitable for the depiction of feelings and thoughts and not the narration of events. Its striking structural feature is the incoherent composition of sentences. Larbaud attributed great significance to narration carried out with the technique of stream of consciousness. The heroes of the three Larbaud short stories, which are in the scope of this study, have emotional problems to solve. The main topic of their ``audible thinking'' is the problem of faithfulness and the spiritual and physical distances between man and woman. Journey through time and space often gives the impression of a film script: the narrator depicts past and imaginary future in incoherent structured sentences which resemble the form of snapshots.
