In May 2018 marks the 400th anniversary of the beginning of the Thirty Years' War, that war, which overshadowed the 17th century Trojan War paradigm and asserted itself beyond the catastrophes of the 20th century. Just as Troy's immortalization was ultimately a result of literary canonization in the wake of Homer, thus, the experiences of the Thirty Years' War are presented in literature, too, brought into a literary order.

Whaley and Wilson were pointing to a model of flexibility and stability long vanished from the collective memory or, if at all, remembered as a deficient structure.

Bertolt Brecht was confronted with the alien throughout his life. He was exposed to it everywhere he lived, and in all venues he inhabited, he was as a stranger among strangers. Furthermore, he made the experience of the alien into the linchpin of his entire artistic project. His plays, prose, and poetry, as well as the texts he wrote about theater and the other arts, about politics and society, tell us that the experience of being alien is the precondition for the possibility of a future community among strangers.
