The eyes from which Elfriede Jelinek directs her “distant gaze” at the world have a heavy coat of make-up. Her interest has always been in the contexts and imbalances. This gaze is what made Jelinek an international literary superstar and also a detested author. With Elfriede Jelinek – Die Sprache von der Leine lassen, Claudia Müller looks through the author’s eyes, as it were, back at her life.
