The Book Goldmann

The Book Goldmann is the name Ingeborg Bachmann gave to her great narrative project, which she cherished until the end. This edition renders the previously only fragmentarily available work recognizable as a project of redemptive narration. The Book Goldmann deals with the various aspects of indiscretion, including misunderstood indiscretion that leaves the other alone in his distress. Half a century after Hofmannsthal, Bachmann discovers a social medium in the somewhat indiscrete Viennese conversation, which could have prevented the worst: Fanny Goldmann’s death.
