Von Franzos zu Canetti: Jüdische Autoren aus Österreich. Neue Studien

Mark Howard Gelber (Editor), Hans Otto Horch (Editor), Sigurd Paul Scheichl (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


This collection of new studies on Jewish authors from Austria (among them Franzos, Beer-Hofmann, Schnitzler, Broch, Roth, Kisch, Brod, Canetti, Celan, Ausländer) is dedicated to the Tel-Aviv literary historian Margarita Pazi. Common to the articles is the endeavour to offset a certain tendency towards de-historicization in the assessment of their works, given that all these writers bear the imprint, to a greater or lesser degree, of Austria under the Habsburgs, with its broad variety of literary landscapes. The effects of this specific constellation continued to make themselves felt up to the Second World War and beyond, as is reflected in the works of many of the authors dealt with here.
