«Nun also die Krähen». Krähen-Narrationen und -Narrative bei Monika Maron
[«Now then the crows». Monika Maron’s Crow-narrations and Crow-narrative]
This article focuses on Monika Maron’s Krähengekrächz (2016) and Munin oder Chaos im Kopf (2018). Adopting the approach of Literary Animal Studies, it primarily analyses the diegetic creature “crow”: the species “crow” as well as its individual exponent Munin, which is anthropomorphized, disposes of speech and agency and represents not just a narrated “object” but a narrating “subject”. Subsequently, Maron’s crow-narrations, concretizations of a metanarration / a (cultural) narrative “crow”, are shaped in their relationship to fictional (literature) and factual (popular science) narratives of the crow and evaluated on their importance for current animal-discourses.
