Karl Kraus (1874-1936) was an Austrian writer and journalist, known as a satirist, essayist, aphorist, playwright and poet. He directed his satire at the press, German culture, and German and Austrian politics. The Austrian author Stefan Zweig once called Kraus "the master of venomous ridicule" (der Meister des giftigen Spotts). He was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature three times. The Last Days of Mankind (German: Die letzten Tage der Menschheit) is a satirical play by Karl Kraus. It is considered one of the most important of Kraus' works. One third of the play is drawn from documentary sources and is highly realistic, except the final scenes which are of expressionist genre. [wikipedia]. Shelved Dupont Bookstore.
