Abstract

It seems to be the destiny of borders in medieval short narratives to be crossed, demolished and reconstructed. The effect is, after all, that one can see the function and disfunction of borders. The borderlines of medieval short narratives are very branchy: They seperate men and God, man and woman, social classes, good and bad behaviour, now and then, form and meaning and so on. The only thing in common is that the seperated aspects are compressed tightly, so that they are oscillating between antagonism and conglomeration. In our second session the spirit will be in focus of border crossing.
