,,Eine Last auf meiner Seele" HELEN THEIN ,,Eine Last auf meiner Seele" Zum Widerhall der Schriften Simone Weils in der deutschsprachigen Nachkriegsliteratur Taking Heinrich Böll's image of the Christian, political and philosophical French writer Simone Weil (1909-1943) as an intellectual, moral and religious "burden on his soul"as point of departure, the article analyses the reception of Weil's work against the background of the history of its publication in the Federal Republic of Germany within the writings of four key figures of post-war literature: Böll, Ingeborg Bachmann, Nelly Sachs and Jean Améry. The texts of the four writers on Weil have been neglected by literary critics specialising in Böll, Bachmann, Sachs and Améry alike. By reading Böll's contribution to an anthology on `Literature as Baggage', Bachmann's radio feature, Sachs's poems and letters in their contexts, ranging from the early 50s to the late 70s, specific political (Böll, Bachmann) and religious (Sachs) affinities are brought out whereas in the case of the essay by Améry, being the only one addressing Weil's Jewish origin, his disagreement with Böll, Bachmann and Sachs on Weil is accounted for.
