Many figures of educational descent are to be found in contemporary German literature. This article takes this observation as an opportunity to bring together social science descriptions of the present (precarity) with arguments of form and genre (Bildungsroman, Angestelltenroman). The main features of a poetics of social politics are developed from readings of Thomas Melle’s 3000 Euro, Robert Kisch’s Möbelhaus , and Kristine Bilkau’s Die Glücklichen , a politics that takes the welfare state programming of the social as an opportunity to inquire about the function of literary representation in the culture of the welfare state (Franz Xaver Kaufmann).
