Sebald diagnoses Döblin's writing as operating on the basis of a "regressive mimesis" that represents violence uncritically, solely for the sake of shock-effects, and eliminates any potential for critical distance, ultimately aligning the author's aesthetics with fascism.

Highlighting the influence of Adorno, Mosbach shows how Sebald sketches a counter-model to such an aesthetics through a "playful mimesis" and the notion of "Fiktion," designed to allow literary writing a reflective distance from its represented object through mediation and thus to counter Döblin's "Mythus" of destruction. The question of how the literary description of catastrophe can maintain proper distance from its objects is also at the heart of Sebald's lectures on the air war and literature, which Mosbach discusses next.

The lectures are marked by a tension between distance and proximity vis-à-vis destruction that is reflected in Sebald's ambivalent understanding of "natural history" in metaphysical terms, as a permanent catastrophe, and as a particular mode of historical representation.

However, rather than remaining a blind spot in Sebald's oeuvre, this ambivalence in the aesthetic representation of catastrophe is subsequently thematized and critically reflected in Die Ringe des Saturn , primarily in the construction of a self-reflexive melancholy perspective constantly oscillating between identification and distancing.
