The present volume dedicates itself to the Austrian poet and writer and involuntary namesake of the perversion of masochism: Leopold von Sacher-Masoch (1836–1895) and his Galician references . The author’s goal is to free Sacher-Masoch from the shadow of Slavic obsessions and mythifications. In doing so, she pursues Galicia’s market strategy and socio-political potential for Sacher-Masoch, also allowing the Galician side – including the successor states of Poland and the Ukraine – to have its say. In addition, Weismann uses new sources and old statements to examine Sacher-Masoch’s true connections to Galicia and the Galician-specific focuses of his literary work, aside from eastern steppe romanticism.
