Abstract

Né en 1874, Karl Kraus a été mêlé de loin ou de près, comme acteur, témoin ou juge, à tous les mouvements artistiques, intellectuels ou politiques qui agitèrent Vienne au début de notre siècle. Pendant plus de trente ans, de 1899 à sa mort en 1936, il fit paraître sa revue Die Fackel, qu'il finit par rédiger tout seul et dans laquelle il a publié la majeure partie de son oeuvre. Pessimiste et lucide il combattit les travers de son temps et ses armes préférées furent la citation et la glose. Les spécialistes français, autri­chiens, allemands, américains et hongrois dont les contributions sont réunies ici ont étudié tour à tour les rapports ambigus et apparemment changeants de Kraus avec la politique et les partis, ses prises de positions sur le sionisme, le nationalisme, la guerre et la paix, son attitude à l'égard de quelques grandes questions de son temps comme le féminisme, l'éducation, la théorie des masses ou le déclin de l'Occident, et ils ont analysé la stratégie et les armes du satiriste.

Abstract

The book explores the modern attitudes that are articulated in the texts "Third Walpurgis Night" (1933) by Karl Kraus and "Prodromos" (1905) by Peter Altenberg. Following Foucault's discourse analytical approach and his concept of self practice, it asks with what types of subject and truth the two literary works break open the structures of enunciation in which they are historically embedded. The result is not a biographical or philological comparison, but a report on the experience of a performative reading that makes an archaeological section of the writings and reconstructs their genealogical line.

Abstract

Kai Evers’s Violent Modernists: The Aesthetics of Destruction in Twentieth-Century German Literature develops a new understanding of German modernism that moves beyond the oversimplified dichotomy of an avant-garde prone to aggression on the one hand and a modernism opposed to violence on the other. Analyzing works by Robert Musil, Franz Kafka, Karl Kraus, Walter Benjamin, Elias Canetti, and others, Evers argues that these authors are among the most innovative thinkers on violence and its impact on contemporary concepts of the self, history, and society.
