Construction and Mythologization of the Urban Space in the Alfred Doeblins Roman "Berlin Alexanderplatz"

Student: Tatyana Karpova

Supervisor: Irina Lagutina

Faculty: Faculty of Humanities

Educational Programme: Philology (Bachelor)

Year of Graduation: 2021

Alfred Doeblin's so-called "big city novel" Berlin Alexanderplatz, one of the most sophisticated modernist novels, has always been of interest to scholars, but in fact the construction of the city's poetics is still underdeveloped. In this study, an attempt is made to study the text from the perspective of techniques that allow the author to create an urban space, and also to discover, references to which cultural and historical context allow us to call the novel a modern myth.
