Abstract

This article explores "Prince Jussuf," the fantastic autobiographical "I" created by the German-Jewish poet Else Lasker-Schüler. Brought into being through performance, "he" forms a link between body and text, masculinity and femininity, enabling Lasker-Schüler to create a mythical autobiography that is, for her, more real than "real" life could ever be.
