Abstract

The Pennsylvania State University, University Park, PA. This article takes the approach of cultural metaphor analysis to locate and describe the utopian metaphor of fluidity as it appears in the works of Luce Irigaray, Julia Kristeva, and Ingeborg Bachmann. The first stage of analysis consists in a theoretical description of fluidity, utopia, and the chora in works by Luce Irigaray and Julia Kristeva. The article offers a new reading of utopian language and the metaphor of fluidity in Ingeborg Bachmann’s novelistic fragment Der Fall Franza.
