It is especially interesting that Sebald’s writing attracted so much interest at a time when literary discourse appeared to have been both appropriated and marginalized within cultural studies. This is the spirit in which both Calvino and Culler wrote about this, as discussed earlier, and theirs are by no means lone voices. In 1836 Wilhelm von Humboldt wrote that “language . . is perpetually and at every moment something transitory . . Language itself is not a work (ergon), but an activity” (Cupitt 1998, 110).
Still, it is inaccurate to suggest that Sebald is merely interested in poetics and aesthetics. On more than one occasion, he refers to “the moral backbone of literature — that whole question of memory” (Jaggi 2001a). He explained that “if a story is aesthetically right, then it is probably also morally right. You cannot really translate one to one from reality. If you try to do that, in order to get at a truth value through writing, you have to falsify and lie. And that is one of the moral quandaries of the whole business” (Green 2000).
In Six Memos for the Next Millennium (1992), Italo Calvino suggests, like Jonathan Culler (2000), that the art of the literary could be renewed in exciting ways at the end of the twentieth century and the beginning of the twenty-first. Was this, in the former instance, the challenge that Sebald had set himself in his fiction? For one reader, at the world’s edge, it seemed that this might be so, and part of it entailed the eliciting of a reader who was being encouraged to be as disobedient and as adventurous as the author himself seemed to be in the production of his texts.
