AllMoreKarl Kraus is a study of the Viennese satirist who was both admired and vilified in his lifetime (1874-1936), a man who fashioned the imperishable profile of his time from newspaper reports, other perishable materials and his own unique genius.

All his works have been reissued in postwar Germany, and he is widely read and quoted in Europe, yet he is little known in English-speaking countries, since only a fraction of his work has appeared in English.The present study is intended as an introduction to Kraus, a powerful polemical and poetic voice in the dying decades of the Austro-Hungarian empire and the ominous years between the two world wars. Concentrating on the satirists life, his personality, and the various aspects of his creativeness, it presents a detailed discussion of his major works--including The Last Days of Mankind.Dr.

Zohn presents Kraus in his full stature as an essayist, dramatist, poet, and cultural critic, quoting copiously from his writings. An extensive Aphoristic Sampler and a bibliography are included.
