Benjaminov ormar: Autobiografski diskurs u/kroz teoriju / Benjamin’s Closet: Autobiographical Discourse In/Through Theory

Andrea Palašti


The aim of this paper is to explore the autobiographical and theoretical forms of entry in Walter Benjamin’s essay Berlin childhood, and, on the other hand, to present a diverse/flexible/ hybrid theory by which is realized a meaningful framework of analysis. According to this, the contextual interpretation of the story The Sock is, in fact, an intertextual play between autobiography (text!) and theory (footnote!).
