I'm writing about Ernst Roberty Curtius friendship with my father, Stephen Spender, before and after the war. I've come across this phenomenon of Inner Exile or "Inneres Exil". Thomas Mann, of course, left Germany, but I think there must have been some tension between him as a 'real' exile and the 'interior exile' intellectuals who stayed behind. Does anyone know where I can find out more? Sie koennten auch auf Deutsch antworten. Danke.
