Theatre and Delusion: Space and Place in Fontane’s Graf Petöfy

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


This paper proposes a spatial reading of a little studied novel by Fontane. It is suggested that the novel's story should be read as a tale of delusion, and that descriptions of the city and landscapes prefigure and chart the main characters' gradual erring from their original states of awareness.
