Variations 25 (2017)
Variations is the journal for comparative literary studies at the University of Zurich. It publishes contributions in
three languages (German, French and English) and is a forum for research that helps advance academic exchange in
literary studies. Each issue gathers articles on a particular topic, followed by literary and artistic contributions, as well
as reviews of recently published research in comparative literary studies.
“Consequently I place myself in this breach. […] I divide my inner self
into the finite and the infinite factors […].”
(Jean Paul, School for Aesthetics)
