ABSTRACT
This essay focuses on the representation of the city of Berlin in literature. Berlin at any rate is addicted to self-assurances and certifications of its identity. Berlin is fascinated by media representations and performances—television series in and about Berlin, Berlin films, and Berlin novels. Berlin—in literature and in other things—has become a life world of its own. And even what can not be seen as obvious or given is seen as obvious and given in Berlin; at any rate there is no question of possible assaults on Berlin as a field of movement. The capital city, announced the periodical Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung at the end of 1998, is the illusionary neurosis of literature. And it is true: roughly three hundred Berlin titles, including detective novels, appeared between 1989 and the end of the 1990s. This essay was translated by Stephen Brockmann.
