AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Schulze considers situations of confinement in some of Carey's short stories, 'laying special emphasis on Carey's strategy of entrapping his readers in narrative labyrinths, a manoeuvre [seen as] having a didactic purpose: that of increasing one's awareness of linguistic manipulation' (Introduction to Fabulating Beauty xxx).


  • This essay first appeared as 'Peter Careys Kurzgeschichten: Gefangen in einem erzählerischen Labyrinth' in GASt-Newsletter 17 (2003): 36-46. It has been translated into English and much revised for publication in this volume.
