Half-Truths and One-and-a-Half Truths - Selected Aphorisms (Paperback, 2nd Univ of Chicago PR ed.): Karl Kraus Half-Truths and One-and-a-Half Truths - Selected Aphorisms (Paperback, 2nd Univ of Chicago PR ed.)
Karl Kraus; Translated by Harry Zohn
R465 Discovery Miles 4 650 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

"An aphorism never coincides with the truth: it is either a half-truth or one-and-a-half truths," wrote Kraus. The aphorism was "a sub-genre [Kraus] considered the height of linguistic integrity. . . . With the help of notes and introductions by Zohn, the subtlety and archness of Kraus' linguistic gifts shine through." Peter Filkins, "Bloomsbury Review" "Kraus is a superb aphorist." D. J. Enright, "New York Review of Books""

The Last Days of Mankind - The Complete Text (Hardcover): Karl Kraus The Last Days of Mankind - The Complete Text (Hardcover)

Kraus's iconic WWI drama, a satirical indictment of the glory of war, now in English in its entirety for the first time One hundred years after Austrian satirist Karl Kraus began writing his dramatic masterpiece, The Last Days of Mankind remains as powerfully relevant as the day it was first published. Kraus's play enacts the tragic trajectory of the First World War, when mankind raced toward self-destruction by methods of modern warfare while extolling the glory and ignoring the horror of an allegedly "defensive" war. This volume is the first to present a complete English translation of Kraus's towering work, filling a major gap in the availability of Viennese literature from the era of the War to End All Wars. Bertolt Brecht hailed The Last Days as the masterpiece of Viennese modernism. In the apocalyptic drama Kraus constructs a textual collage, blending actual quotations from the Austrian army's call to arms, people's responses, political speeches, newspaper editorials, and a range of other sources. Seasoning the drama with comic invention and satirical verse, Kraus reveals how bungled diplomacy, greedy profiteers, Big Business complicity, gullible newsreaders, and, above all, the sloganizing of the press brought down the Austro-Hungarian Empire. In the dramatization of sensationalized news reports, inurement to atrocities, and openness to war as remedy, today's readers will hear the echo of the fateful voices Kraus recorded as his homeland descended into self-destruction.
