Abstract

Although Marte Brill's novel of exile, Der Schmelztiegel, was posthumously published in 2002, this has not been the case with the poetry she wrote largely between 1910 and 1919. After briefly sketching Brill's difficult life of exile in Spain (Mallorca), Italy, and Brazil, this article aims at an analysis of her poetry with its neoromantic, symbolistic, and expressionistic elements. Thematically it displays an emotional gamut between a desire for life and a longing for death. Brill's explosion of youthful feelings could be seen as normal for a young, sensitive individual had she not found a noteworthy poetic form for expressing herself. A representative sampling of her poetry follows the article. (OR; in German)
