Literary Archive

Feder, Bleistift und Radiergummi des Literaturnobelpreisträgers Peter Handke.

A finger on the pulse of literature

Whether it be the poems of Ingeborg Bachmann, plays by Ödön von Horvath or novels by Peter Handke, you can find the originals in the Literary Archive, one of the most important institutions of its kind in the German-speaking region. We collect and acquire literary legacies, both pre- and post-death, of Austrian authors from the 20th century (notably from 1945) and make them available for research purposes.
