Il prorompere della I GM, fatalmente, condiziona le riflessioni, verso la fine.
I riferimenti ai personaggi dell’epoca spesso a noi sconosciuti allontanano il lettore odierno dall’immediata condivisione. E la scoppiettante dinamica iniziale della raccolta viene un po’ meno. Ma i primi due terzi della lettura sono sorprenden Si perde un po’ per strada, questo volume. Ma i primi due terzi della lettura sono sorprendenti, divertentissimi per chi ama il generericchi di un sarcasmo fulminante, spesso acido, che toglie il fiato.
Ci si trova al cospetto di un intelletto dettl, di una vis polemica coontraddetti a nessuno, di un’arguzia scintillante. Distacco cinico e paradosso. Non sorprende sapere che negli anni ’60, in Italia, la RAI trasmettesse una breve e seguitissima rubrica televisiva nella quale si leggeva e commentava un aforisma al giorno, di Karl Kraus.
Una menzione d’onore merita il saggio che introduce il volume. Spocchioso; offensivo, per eccesso di protervia; supponente; sommamente irritante; assolutamente inutile; indecente. Non introduce alla lettura. Non stimola una conoscenza ulteriore. In compenso si arrampica in arabeschi lessico-semantici di arditezza barocca, derubando il lettore di tempo prezioso ed energie.

E’ questo il periodo in cui Kraus pubblica i numeri I frequentatori dei teatri di questo mondo non saprebbero reggervi ma che nel nostro paese ha visto una mirabile rappresentazione, per la regia di Luca Ronconi chi altri? Il volume ci presenta tre diverse raccolte di aforismi krausiani, originariamente pubblicati via via ktaus Fackel: Detti e Contraddettipubblicata nelPro domo et mundo e Di nottedel Kraus si rivela ovviamente un maestro dell’aforisma, collocandosi in una tradizione che annovera tra gli altri autori da lui molto ammirati, quali Nietzsche e Wilde.
Per essere perfetta le mancava solo un difetto; L’astinenza si vendica sempre. Gli aforismi krausiani svelano anche le sue contraddizioni, quelle di uno scrittore di cui a volte si ha l’impressione che l’egocentrismo, il gusto della satira e della battuta sferzante oltrepassino il suo stesso pensiero. A volte persino nell’amore; Bisogna distinguere tra donne colpose e dolose; Con le donne monologo volentieri.
Certo, non conta soltanto l’aspetto esteriore di una donna.
Anche i dessous sono importanti. Brilliant in so many ways Kraus is exposing the many shades of laughter, the complicity between market liberalism, social consvervatism and the press and warfare.

The satire he produces leaves you oraus what it is you are actually laughing at if there is at all any “about” in his writing”darkness” and “obscurity” are decisive features of his aphoristic art, which makes it very ironic when people cite him and act as if it was so clear what Kraus’s sentence are actually about.
They seem more like demonstrations of language’s movements. There seems to be neither method nor rule to his game. It helps to understand that for Kraus, art – and words in literature, which is his realm, are art like all other art forms – is not there to please or satisfy, to present ideas in beautiful colours, to highlight a feeling or sensation, but more to restore and make you feel the disorder that surrounds you.
He presents words in a way that they look “far away” at you, the closer katl look at them how to paraphrase that? His whole game is not about understanding abstract ideas but presenting the material of literary art in its irritating materiality and making you aware that the air surrounding literature is one of irritation and not knowing exactly. To say it in Krausian terms: So much depends contraxdetti the air in which words breath, in bad air even Shakespeare’s words will croak.
What he often does is to detfi the words used in press and politics and surround them with an air of confusion, thereby giving them air to breath.

Given the fact that journalistic and liberal market speech have even further colonized our daily exposure to language, Kraus seems to grow in relevance with every passing day and every online article by self-declared “experts on the field”.
Walter Benjamin’s essay is also great to get an understanding of the invisible margins of Kraus’s endeavours. Someone like him is desperately missing kraud, perhaps no one eetti afford his kind of life anymore. Of course one should not forget the problematic aspects to Kraus.

Someone who can confidently stage himself as the judge and saviour of language does not really practice the humbleness which one could take to be the “lesson” of his writing. Generally there remains the feeling that he wants to educate you on something, be it the fact that you should just be quiet about things you don’t understand dettii depth.
Yet, he remains one of the most inspiring writers I have come across, and although his frame of reference and his language are so German, Karp do think reading Kraus in any language will be a great, irritating, dis- and remembering experience.

I read “Dicta and Contradicta” right after reading Wittgenstein’s aphorisms and comparing the two, I find Wittgenstein more biting and also beautifully written.
Reading the essay by Johnathan McVity that is in the back of the book, makes me want to read marl of Karl Krauss. But still, I find these collection of aphorisms by Krauss vulgar. But that I believe is due to the age and times of Vienna cultural and political life.

He lived in dangerous times, and one can feel that he was spitting at those in power. So in that context, it’s a fascinating document of those times. Nothing about this book is false.
Some of it is wrong and untrue, but not false; thus the contradiction s: He even implicates himself with his words.
As such, I say: Too many good quotes to write. I’ll pass this time. But if someone knows where that quote could fit, then the person contraddettii very educated contraddrtti school didn’t failed.
Not having any German, I’m forced to rely on reviews by scholars and friends whose work I respect –and they are unanimous in judging this translation so bad as to be worthless. A comparison between the text here and that of earlier translations reveals problems of diction and style as well as serial betrayal by “false friends”. We need more Karl Kraus!
Kraus appeals to me strongly as described by others – pugnacious, arrogant, disagreeable, independent, brilliant – but I didn’t enjoy these effortful aphorisms at all. They seem either obscure, obvious or silly mostly. Dftti Franzen or Szasz will change my mind.
