Abstract

[en] The aim of this thesis is to critically engage with a corpus of three different novels which can be encompassed under the (non-specific) label of “alternative history”. Indeed, Philip K. Dick’s The Man in the High Castle (1962), Robert Harris’ Fatherland (1992) and Philip Roth’s The Plot Against America (2004) imagine a world in which the Axis power is victorious. The questions raised in this thesis are the following: Is alternative history, more specifically set in the context of World War II, a subversive or conservative mode? What is alternative history’s meta-text? What are the implications of the theme of World War II?
