Something does, on occasion, fall from a torch. A bit of pitch.

New translation: Citing Austria’s psychology

Citing Austria’s psychology” (1906) is a translation of “Zur Psychologie Österreichs” (F 209: 1-7) and is, to the best of my knowledge, the first translation of this piece. Should this be false, kindly let me know where I can find an existing translation. I would be interested in reading it.


A kind of abstract: Kraus continues with a theme recurrent in his writing; in what appears here as the opening paragraph (see footnote 1 of the translation), Kraus claims that Shakespeare had certain powers of foresight for events of historical import and draws on Shakespeare’s King John to show the veracity of his claim.
