A new selection from the writings of Karl Kraus, the great Viennese satirist

Karl Kraus was a passionate and witty essayist and a sharp-eyed observer of the elegant fin-de-siecle Vienna in which he lived. He published almost all his satirical writings in his own journal, The Torch, and was also the author of The Last Days of Mankind, an apocalyptic theatrical masterpiece with a cast of almost five hundred. This collection of selected writings includes "Salome," a defence of Oscar Wilde’s play; "Self-Admiration," an essay on publishing one’s diaries; and "The World of Posters," a wonderful description of the power of advertising, among others.
