Childbirth as a Metaphor for Crisis: Evidence from the by Claudia D. Bergmann

By Claudia D. Bergmann

Krisen und Katastrophen aller artwork haben Menschen schon immer vor große Herausforderungen gestellt. Die vorliegende Studie geht der Frage nach, wie literarische Texte diese Herausforderungen durch die Gedankenwelt der Metaphern be- und verarbeiten. Herausgestellt wird die Geburtsmetapher, die krisengeschüttelte Menschen mit gebärenden Frauen vergleicht (und manchmal umgekehrt). Behandelt werden Texte aus dem Alten Orient, dem Alten testomony sowie ein exemplarischer textual content aus dem Qumrankorpus, der die Geburtsmetapher aufgreift und weiterentwickelt.
