The last days of mankind; a tragedy in five acts by Karl Kraus( Book )

120 editions published between 1933 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 1,247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Intended 'for a theatre on Mars', with a cast of nearly five hundred and running to over two hundred scenes, Karl Kraus's apocalyptic tragedy The last days of mankind is the longest, most elaborate play ever written. It is also a bitingly satirical commentary on the outbreak and subsequent course of World War I. Kraus (1874-1936) ranks as one of the greatest twentieth-century satirists. In 1899 he established his own journal, Die Fackel (The torch), to 'drain the marsh of empty phrase-making'. His work comprises essays, short stories, poetry and aphorisms, and culminated in the five-act play presented here. First published in 1920, The last days employs a collage of modernist techniques to evoke a despairing and darkly comical vision of the Great War from the perspective of the author's hometown, Vienna. At its centre, Kraus places a cabal of war-mongering press barons and self-serving hacks, whose strategies of mass manipulation he holds responsible for the very atrocities they report."--Cover

Einen bedeutenden Teil des Prosawerks von Karl Kraus machen seine literaturkritischen Schriften aus. Dazu gehören die großen Essays über Heine und Nestroy, die Lobreden auf Frank Wedekind und Peter Altenberg, die Auseinandersetzungen mit Arthur Schnitzler und Stefan George, die Abhandlungen über den Reim sowie über "Humor und Lyrik".
