Die Verkümmerung der Erfahrung: eine vergleichende Analyse von "Peter Schlemihls wundersame Geschichte" und "Das Parfum"

By Roberto Henrique Seidel


The present article is a comparative analysis of "Das Parfum" by Patrick Süskind and "Peter Schlemihls wundersame Geschichte" by Adalbert von Chamisso. The analysis applies Walter Benjamin 's concepts of experience and event to the deep structure of the narratives and the characters and confronts the issue of identity of the modern hero, who is unable to undergo any kind of experience, with the loss of sense that the individual suffers from as a result of the disenchantment of the world.O presente artigo e uma análise comparativa de "Das Parfum" de Patrick Süskind e "Peter Schlemihls wundersame Geschichte" de Adalbert von Chamisso.
