Abstract

Reviews | 155 locutions creep in, especially toward the end; for instance, "With German greetings" (87) lacks context in English and must be given as "Heil Hitler." It would also aid full articulation to have a group of actors read through the script, preferably in preparing a performance, and instructing the translator on what actually does and does not work in the dialogue. Otherwise, however, the translation is creditable, and the appearance of this play in English makes a strong contribution in several fields, especially literature and history. This publication makes the fascinating, improbable story of Blessed Franz Jägerstätter more widely accessible, and that can only be seen as a strong plus. Vincent Kling La Salle University Katherine Arens, Belle Necropolis: Ghosts of Imperial Vienna. New York: Peter Lang, 2015. 231 pp. Belle Necropolis: Ghosts of Imperial Vienna by Katherine Arens places at its center neither a group of canonical Austrian texts, nor a particular literary genre, nor a school of thought, but rather the cultural process of mythmaking in Austria as it takes place from late imperial Austria to the present day.
