Abstract

Master narratives in Imperial Germany typically equated "the laborer" with immoral bodies. Proletarian autobiographers insisted that wretched existential conditions caused working-class bawdiness, and devised counterstories to the ideological theft of moral agency. Class-conscious male authors outlined a proletarian morality, while female authors in general claimed either a private or bourgeois respectability for themselves.
