Emigrant image and nomadic motives in the novel by E.M. Remarque “Arc of Triumph”


The emigrant heroes’ images of the novel by E.M. Remarque “Arc of Triumph” and the specifics of the author's attitude to the German emigration in the 1930s are determined. The emigrant appears in this novel not as a victim of historical circumstances, but as the bearer of a certain life philosophy: the fragility of his position corresponds to variability as an essential characteristic of the world. The study compares an emigrant image in Remarque’s novel with the concept of a nomad in modern postmodern philosophy.
