Illuminations by Walter Benjamin ( Book )
24 editions published between 1968 and 2013 in English and held by 1,199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Studies on contemporary art and culture by one of the most original, critical and analytical minds of this century. Illuminations includes Benjamin's views on Kafka, with whom he felt the closest personal affinity, his studies on Baudelaire and Proust (both of whom he translated), his essays on Leskov and on Brecht's Epic Theater. Also included are his penetrating study on "The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction," an illuminating discussion of translation as a literary mode, and his thesis on the philosophy of history. Hannah Arendt selected the essays for this volume and prefaces them with a substantial, admirably informed introduction that presents Benjamin's personality and intellectual development, as well as his work and his life in dark times.Reflections the companion volume to this book, is also available in Schocken paperback. --Publisher

In these great times : [a Karl Kraus reader by Karl Kraus ( Book )

?Perhaps one day man will [?] see what a small occurrence such a world-war was when set against the spiritual self-mutilation of mankind by its newspapers, and how the war was at bottom just one of its manifestations [...] Allow me to overestimate the press. But if I maintain incorrectly that an epoch which takes the special edition so lightly as the event itself, and with excited nerves takes lies for facts, if it is not true that more blood has flown from telegrams than they claimed to contain, then let this blood be on my hands." Karl Kraus was a razor-sharp observer of fin-d

Karl Kraus and the critics by Harry Zohn ( Book )
3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Karl Kraus and the Critics, the first study devoted entirely to a century of critical reactions to this controversial satirist, who was both deified and vilified in his lifetime and in the six decades since his death, attempts to reduce an enormous amount of criticism to manageable dimensions and to give a typology of this commentary. By means of copious quotation from both major and minor studies as well as reliable translation it provides some access to criticism that has been published only in German. A chronology of Kraus's life and works and an extensive bibliography of both primary and secondary writings are intended to enhance the reference value of this book and to stimulate further reading and research
