The role of the literary tradition in the understanding of the native region’s chronotope is emphasized. The attention is drawn to the change in the connotation of the Austrian regional literature (Heimatliteratur) in the context of historical, social, and aesthetic factors with the parallel modification of the region’s image: the allGerman antimodernist movement Heimatkunst and its Austrian version Provinzkunst; radicalization of the interwar period and the “Blood and Soil Literature” (Blut-und-Boden-Literatur); updating by the new movement “Anti-regional literature” (AntiHeimatliteratur).
