Something does, on occasion, fall from a torch. A bit of pitch.
Karl Kraus (F 279-280: 5)

New translations: two very short glosses

While I am finishing up my translations of “In these great times” and “A misunderstanding” (the latter is a fine gloss by Kraus), I have gone ahead and translated two very short glosses and finally gotten around to publishing them here at a bit of pitch. They are: (1) “After numerous requests,” a gloss lampooning Harden, a favorite target of Kraus’s, and (2) “The censor in Prague,” a gloss pointing out the ineffectual nature of banning performances of Shakespeare—everyone can just go read him.


Happy reading!
