Abstract

Oswald Levett's Verirrt in den Zeiten (1933) depicts a journey in time that almost results in a counterfactual alteration of history. Thus the text develops narrative strategies like those that were starting to distinguish the Anglo-American science-fiction subgenre known as "alternate history." Just as the novel's protagonist plays with unrealized possibilities for historical change, the novel unwittingly points toward a new type of narrative.
