OE’s World

Nippon Culture   º 

A lecture by Prof. Dr. Lisette GEBHARDT

In spring 2023, world-famous grand master of Japanese literature Kenzaburo OE died at the age of 88. What remains of his work? How will he be remembered? The lecture will go through the grotesque yet also profoundly human world of OE’s poetic writing. Prof. Dr. Lisette GEBHARDT takes a look at the Nobel laureate’s literary legacy, his mark on modern literature and the stimulus he has given to writers of the future.
