Keywords Ludwig Winder; Helmut Lethen; shame; guilt; narratology
Description The paper deals with the motifs of guilt and shame in Ludwig Winder’s text "Lechowski", namely with the literary processing of the norm change away from a culture of guilt to a culture of shame, which the cultural scientist Helmut Lethen diagnosed in his book Verhaltenslehren der Kälte. Lebensversuche zwischen den Kriegen for the 1920s and early 1930s. My narratological analysis uses exemplary text passages to show which narrative possibilities Ludwig Winder uses to realize the guilt-shame problem in the text.
