This study focuses on the writings of Christa Wolf, one of East Germany's most prominent and controversial authors. Offering original and provocative readings of Wolf's most significant literary and essayistic texts, it explores the evolution of her moral vision. This book expands the scholarly context for discussion of a most important author by situating her in relation to contemporary theoretical debates about modernity, western rationalism, and the constitution of the subject.
