Summary

The study explores the surprising affinity of two seemingly remote phenomena: of literature and weather. In three contrasting cultural formations &#8211 Shakespeare`s early modern age, Goethe`s enlightened society and Zola`s Second Empire &#8211 the weather emerges as an important model for the self-reflection of literature and its creative reinventions as a medium in different epistemic and social circumstances.
