Chapter Summary

Using the example of Carl Zuckmayer and Alice Herdan-Zuckmayer, this essay explores the experience of migration and settlement in light of masculinity and femininity. It offers a comparative study of how the couple narrate their exile years on the Backwoods Farm near Barnard, Vermont. In comparing Carl’s Als wärs ein Stück von mir (1966) and Alice’s Farm in den grünen Bergen (1949), the essay looks for narrative strategies and themes in each text; it explores whether there exists a gendered narrative perspective about their migration experience, whether each autobiography develops distinct masculine or feminine themes and in what ways these themes overlap or diverge.
