Chapter Summary

There is hardly a Swiss author who has not thought of Switzerland as a questionable item. A gap exists between the wide-spread idyllic image of Switzerland and the personal perspective of Swiss-German authors on the nature of their country. In her emphasis on basic values of life, Margrit Schriber (living in Zofingen) goes beyond the opposition local versus global. In her novels the author presents values and orientations which are not restricted to the local space. Schribers novels all give a central role to the theme of isolation and revelation. In this article the notion of ‘framing’ is used as an essential medium to understand what Schriber pursues: an appropriation of the outside-world, and a creative reconstruction of the world into a work of art.
