Ich glaube nicht, dass die Annahme richtig ist, dass der Brief als solcher ein rein privates oder vornehmlich privates Medium ist.

Der Irrtum speiste eine interessante Entwicklung: er erschloss der Epistolographie den neuen Raum des Privatbereiches, und zwar mit der Besonderheit, dass man den Privatbereich als solchen als literatur-, veröffentlichungswürdig und öffentlichkeitsreif betrachtete. Dadurch ergab sich die einigermaßen absurde Situation, dass der Privatbereich prinzipiell zu einem Teil der Öffentlichkeit geworden war. Auf den ersten Blick scheinen damit ausgezeichnete Bedingungen vorhanden zu sein, unter denen die Darstellung persönlicher Gedanken und Gefühle in Briefen gedeihen konnte.
