E. Marlitt, son reflet dans la presse allemande (1865-1990) : problématique de la réception de l'auteur dans la presse périodique

Abstract : This popular writer, born in Thüringen, belongs to the XIXth century feminine literature. The success she obtains when her novels were published in serial numbers in the family periodical “Die Gartenlaude" aroused many reactions. If the readers were enthusiastic as she made dream and tried to make women's condition better, the literary critics express a more balanced opinion. Marlitt was not a very well-known even if a fex studies have been written about her. She was praised, and then despised. In 1949, the Thüringen became an eastern "land" and all evidence of her had to disappear. Her work was downgraded as "trivialliteratur". On the occasion of remembrance festivities linked to Marlitt's life, the press devoted a number of articles about this writer's image whose name has become a legend. So have her novels which, no doubt, remind of fairy tules. Cinderella, sleeping beauty, the ugly duckling, all names and titles which remind us of her as well as her heroines. Shall we keep of her the biased image given by the periodical press through expressions used to strike the readers or shall we allow her to be acknowledged as a true writer? A new attempt to assess her that began a fex years ago seems. Indeed, to obtain the opposite result. Marlitt has become a touristic cult object and her career as a writer semmes to be forgotten.
