Abstract

In his youthful approach to Dostoevsky, Walter Benjamin discovered the metaphorical dimension of objects and space: a first step toward his mediological insights about the publishing industry, literary genres, popular culture, and the collective imaginary, developed at the end of the 1920s. Later, in his most famous essays (1934–1936), but also after, despite a pretty negative position on the contemporary novel, Benjamin often used the literary narrative to verify his new hypotheses about media hybridization, the epic models of communication, and Kafka’s prophetic and metaphorical world.
