Session im Rahmen des IMC Leeds 2021 am 05.07.2021 (virtuell)
Nasty weather is – in a pre-modern understanding – meaningful, a sort of communication between micro- and macrocosm. This big idea receives a very concise form in German short epics dealing with nasty weather: Similar to a burning lense, pre-modern short epics are telling about the cosmological correspondence between nasty weather, god, and human kind in the smallest spaces. Inconspicuous occurances are meeting the big picture – a fascinating imbalance.
