Abstract

In Goodbye to Berlin the relationship between the text and the city constitutes the very ground from which the narrator personally observes and experiences the reality that surrounds him. Berlin represents the perfect place of expatriation for an intellectual in search of cultural excitement and delight, but at the same time it is a land of economic depression, dull and decadent. In Goodbye to Berlin the city and the text form the literary units - at time intertwined at time disconnected –where the numerous characters of the six episodes that constitute the novel act.
