Charles Linsmayer in Conversation with Sigrid Weigel about Ingeborg Bachmann

Hottinger Literature Talks

Series of discussions on Swiss literature of the 19th and 20th centuries

With her poems, essays and the cycle “Todesarten”, of which only “Malina” was finished, Ingeborg Bachmann (1926 -1973) is one of the great authors of the 20th century. Not only her work continues to fascinate, but also her life and not least her relationship to Paul Celan, Hans Werner Henze and Max Frisch. With Frisch she lived in Zurich, where she did not feel particularly comfortable. “One week in Zurich as lovers, and out of clear realization the first parting,” Frisch wrote in “Montauk” about the relationship, which was difficult and marked by mutual wounding, yet then remained an issue far beyond their time together.

Sigrid Weigel is one of the best experts on Ingeborg Bachmann’s work. When her still authoritative Bachmann biography appeared in 1999, she was a professor at the University of Zurich.
