This essay presents a reading of Julya Rabinowich's first and third novel (Spaltkopf [Splithead] 2008) and Die Erdfresserin [The female Soil Eater] 2012) employing the concept of myth as theorised by Barthes and Levy-Strauss. I argue that myth in Rabinowich's novels serves as a language through which she expresses the Jewishness of her protagonists.

Abstract

This essay presents a reading of Julya Rabinowich's first and third novel (Spaltkopf [Splithead] 2008) and Die Erdfresserin [The female Soil Eater] 2012) employing the concept of myth as theorised by Barthes and Levy-Strauss. I argue that myth in Rabinowich's novels serves as a language through which she expresses the Jewishness of her protagonists.
