The central thesis of this study is that Max Frisch was by temperament conservative in aesthetic and political matters. His work is examined chronologically here, in order to isolate elements of reaction: his flirtation with "volkisch" theories in the 30s; his lifelong difficulty in putting into practice his theoretical insights on the status of women; and elements of potential modernity, such as the implicit theory of writer-reader relationships in his early journalistic work, or the later explicit theory of diary as a form of expression appropriate to an era of change and dubious identity.
