Leo Lensing on Karl Kraus


Leo Lensing contributed the article on Karl Kraus (1874-1936) to the Handbuch der Kunstzitate, a lexicon documenting allusions to painting, sculpture and photography in the work of more than two hundred German-language writers from the nineteenth to the twenty-first century. The “handbook,” edited by Konstanze Fliedl et al., is published in two volumes by De Gruyter.
