The Function and the Significance of Venice as a Setting in CorneliaFunke´s Novel The Thief Lord (English)
Abstract [de]

In dieser Arbeit steht die Analyse des Schauplatzes Venedig im Abenteuerroman Herr der Diebe (2000) von Cornelia Funke im Mittelpunkt. Es wird aufgezeigt, wie das Setting die Stimmung sowie die Situation der Protagonisten spiegelt und welchen Einfluss dieses somit auf die Wirkung des Romans ausübt. Des Weiteren werden die kennzeichnenden Merkmale des Handlungsortes Venedig aufgezeigt, insbesondere die Topoider Stadt, ihr Mythos sowie ihre Bezüge zum Roman. Abschließend werden die Symboliken des geflügelten Löwen, des Mondes und des Meeres als Venedig-typische Elemente mittragender Aussagekraft analysiert. Es wird ferner die Hypothese aufgestellt, dass der Schauplatz Venedig eine still im Hintergrund agierende Protagonistin ist.

Abstract [en]

This work focuses on the analysis of Venice as a setting in the adventure story The Thief Lord by Cornelia Funke. It is shown how the setting reflects the mood and the situation of the protagonists and what impact it has on the novel. Furthermore, the characteristic features of Venice are presented, like the topoi of the city, its myth, and its references to the novel. Finally, the symbolism of the winged lion, the moon and the sea are analyzed; these symbols are particularly related to Venice and thus have a significant meaning for the story. Moreover, it is hypothesized that Venice is acting like a silent protagonist in the background.
