Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Karl Kraus (1874-1936), flamboyant satirist of turn-of-the-century Viennese society and culture, is but slowly gaining recognition in the English-speaking world. A contemporary of Freud, Schnitzler, Wittgenstein, Canetti, Schonberg, and Kokoschka, Kraus was most influential as an editor, publisher, and writer of the polemic journal Die Fackel (1899-1936). Drawing both on published texts and unpublished materials, Timms presents a fascinating portrait of Kraus as a complex and paradoxical figure within the broad cultural context of his times. Timms's book is a significant contribution to the study of early 20th-century European culture as well as to Kraus scholarship and thus should appeal to generalist and specialist alike. Recommended. Ulrike S. Rettig, German Dept., Wellesley Coll., Mass.

Review

“Edward Timms meticulously interprets this major writer’s most complex period of literary, cultural, and political activity, providing what amounts to an entire cultural history of the period.”—Professor Gilbert Carr, Trinity College Dublin

(Professor Gilbert Carr)

“Timms establishes himself as the premier Kraus scholar writing in English. . . . Marked by impeccable scholarship and fine style.  . . Essential.”

Amazon refuses to fix this problem. They are trying to list Timm's Karl Kraus volume one paperback as volume two in a paperback edition which apparently does not exist. Buyer beware!

It was a pleasure to receive Timms' second volume on Karl Kraus. It came new and in mint condition. Thank you Amazon.
