The peaceful and traditional people, located on the shores of a large bay, are surrounded by the rough pastoral folk in the surrounding hills, who feel increasing pressure from the unscrupulous and lowly followers of the dreaded head forester. The narrator and protagonist lives on the marble cliffs as a botanist with his brother Otho, his son Erio from a past relationship and Erio's grandmother Lampusa. The idyllic life is threatened by the erosion of values and traditions, losing its inner power. The head forester uses this opportunity to establish a new order based on dictatorial rule, large numbers of mindless followers and the use of violence, torture and murder. Others see it as a description of Germany's fight against the threat of Stalinism or communism , the head forester or "chief ranger" being Joseph Stalin.

Blumenberg even argued that the art myth in the Marmorklippen is designed to contain the fear that everything that has been gained in the way of dominion over reality might sink back into the archaic depths of barbarism. Narrating thus stands against the kind of weakness that befalls the narrator himself from time to time. One must, however, wonder whether narrating does constitute an act of mythical empowerment, as Blumenberg suggests, or whether it serves more of an alibi function, as I will argue.
