On Literary Translingualism by Terézia Mora
The Hungarian born Terézia Mora (b. 1971) was 19 when she moved to Germany/Berlin and in a decade time she became one of the leading and most prolific prosaists of contemporary literature written in German. For her works she has already received all of the most important German literary prises. However German critics seems to not being able to decipher the secret of her writing. Beside translating the best Hungarian prosaists into German (i.a. István Örkény or Péter Eszterházy), writting screen plays she is the author of three novels and a collection of short stories. The present paper demonstrates how do the two most important Hungarian prosa traditions influenced her style, and how does Hungarian existencial poetry manifest in the metaphoricity of her work.
