Zum Buch

In 1901, at the age of 23, the Swiss writer Robert Walser published two plays inspired by the famous fairy tales ‹Snow White› and ‹Cinderella›. Both are situated in an iconoclastic tale tradition. The characters discuss their stories on stage and thereby emancipate themselves from them. Based on a study of ‹Schneewittchen›, this article aims to demonstrate the links between Robert Walser’s writing and the theory of ‹littérature mineure› (Deleuze and Guattari). In Walser’s play, one genre (the fairy tale) is subverted by another (drama); a story told by a narrator turns into a dialogue. Language reveals itself as a dense material whose apparent expressivity is undermined by stammering speech. The play cannot come to an end, and the meaning of words constantly oscillates between opposite poles. This particular way of dealing with language is related to the process of deterritorialization, as defined by the French philosophers.
