1. Spencer, Malorie Isabell. The Zweigesque in Wes Anderson's “The Grand Budapest Hotel”.

Degree: MA, German, 2018, Bowling Green State University

This thesis examines the parallels between narrative structures, including frame narratives and narrative construction of identity, as well as poetic and thematic parallels that exist between the writings of Stefan Zweig and the Wes Anderson film, <i>The Grand Budapest Hotel</i>. These parallels are discussed in order to substantiate Anderson’s claim that <i>The Grand Budapest Hotel</i> is a <i>zweigesque</i> film despite the fact that it is not a direct film adaptation of any one Zweig work.Anderson’s adaptations of <i>zweigesque</i> elements show that Zweig’s writings continue to be relevant today. These adaptations demonstrate the intricate ways in which narrative devices can be used to construct stories and reconstruct history. By drawing on thematic and stylistic elements of Zweig’s writings, Anderson’s <i>The Grand Budapest Hotel</i> raises broader questions about both the necessity of narratives and their shortcomings in the construction of identity; Anderson’s characters both rely on and challenge the ways identity is constructed through narrative.This thesis shows how the <i>zweigesque</i> in Anderson’s film is able to challenge how history is viewed and how people conceptualize and relate to their continually changing notions of identity. Advisors/Committee Members: Landgraf, Edgar (Advisor).
