|Keywords||memory / oblivion / media / pain / German literature / 意識 / 身体|
In the period of four years we held nine research meetings with 63 reports in total. The themes of the repoirts were :
・about the memory and the human body
・about the media of the memory and the relation between media and the memory
・about the mass memory and the cultural identity
・about the memory and the consciousness, the memory and the unconsciousness, the memory and the oblivion
・about the memory and the pain
The objects of these analyses were the works of Holderlin, Nietzsche, Rilke, Kafka, Benjamin, Freud, Lessing, Thomas Mann, Goethe and Grillparzer.
We found out that there are a lot of synonyms of the word "memory" in German, and there are series of memories expressed in German literature. Memory primarily originates in the past time incidents, but the memory expressed in literature involves the different time concepts from the usual linear time concept stretching from the past to the future. It also became clear that although the memory is originally an individual matter, it tends to expand when it is kept by many people and it easily develops into the mass history.
Especially the memory of pain is not forgettable for the individuals and for the society. In literary texts we find various types of the memory of pain like consecration, mystification and perversion.
For the further study It seems promising to try to analyze various expressions in German literature from the viewpoint of the cultural factor 'pain'.
