Karl Kraus (1874-1936) was an Austrian satirist, the editor of the influential magazine Die Fackel (The Torch) and a central figure in the intellectual life of fin-de-siecle Vienna. For Franzen, he was a prophet whose writings, though notoriously difficult, speak to 'our own media-saturated, technology-crazed, apocalypse-haunted historical moment'. In this book, he presents the first English translation of Kraus' Heine and the Consequences (1911) and elucidates its context and meaning in copious footnotes.
