Karl Kraus “und die Folgen”

  • Riccardo Morello Università di Torino
Parole chiave: Kraus, Fackel, War, Poetry, End


Between 1915 and the end of the war, Karl Kraus, an Austrian intellectual who had made political satire and criticism of journalistic language, engages in a fierce battle against the inhumanity and cruelty of war. On the pages of “Fackel,” a magazine published by him for over thirty years, from 1899 to 1936, he gathers many texts that then come together in the tragedy of the “Last Days of Mankind,” a great work, dripping horror, which seeks to represent the ‘unrepresentable’.
