The second part analyses spatial and temporal relations of fictional narrative. Chapter 2.1 treats time and space in a novel mostly from the compositional point of view (based on the example of Sasha Sokolov's A School for Fools), while in the next chapter, focusing on ideational interconnections between literary and social- political utopias, both fictionality and temporality are understood more broadly than mere narrative categories: they serve as certain points of connection between the immanent occurrence of meaning in the "world of text" and its historical background.

Narrating an event: Representation of East German revolution 1989 in novel "Helden wie wir" and the historical monography "Die revolution von 1989 in der DDR"
Smyčka, Václav ; Weinberg, Manfred (advisor) ; Zbytovský, Štěpán (referee)
This work deals with the techniques of historical and counterfactual representation of East German revolution 1989 in the novel Helden wie wir and the historical monograph Endspiel: Die Revolution von 1989 in der DDR. The work describes the functions of the techniques by a narratological and hermeneutical approach. The analysis is focused on the transformations of historical and subjective time in the specific time of narratives.
