about

"An aphorism never coincides with the truth: it is either a half-truth or one-and-a-half truths," wrote Kraus. The aphorism was "a sub-genre [Kraus] considered the height of linguistic integrity. . . . With the help of notes and introductions by Zohn, the subtlety and archness of Kraus' linguistic gifts shine through."—Peter Filkins, Bloomsbury Review

"Kraus is a superb aphorist."—D. J. Enright, New York Review of Books
Karl Kraus (1874-1936) was publisher of the independent Viennese journal Die Fackel.
