Anna Mitgutsch

The Boundaries of Language
Keeping uncalm

At the fringes of silence.

What lies beyond the boundaries of language? The horizon has surely always been one of the greatest temptations in the arts. Anna Mitgutsch describes different writers’ attempts to extend and cross over what seemed conceivable. She covers a wide range of historical examples, from Gilgamesh to 20th century literature, which may have abandoned the idea of the horizon, but not the yearning for it. From Emily Dickinson to Jorge Luis Borges or Imre Kertész, we revisit those who have expanded boundaries. Anna Mitgutsch invites us to explore new literary paths. Her brilliant essay wakes our desire to discover a world full of riddles and mystery. A highly recommended read!

Anna Mitgutsch, born in Linz, has taught German Literature and American Literature at Austrian and US American universities. She writes essays and translations and has authored eight novels since her highly acclaimed literary debut “Die Züchtigung” (1985). Her signature style is a unique narrative intensity. She has received numerous awards for her work, including the Solothurner Literaturpreis.
