Abstract

Adalbert Stifter’s edited collection Wien und die Wiener is relevant for memory studies research on nineteenth-century Austria due to its generic and narrative form. As a contemporary Viennese publication that focuses on the recent past, Stifter’s “St. Stephansthurm” and Perger’s “Eine Partie nach der Lobau” suture the reader into prosthetic memory of the Battles of Aspern and Wagram through battle reenactments. These scenes suggest that continuity in nature is greater than the historical narratives of the Habsburg Empire.
