Abstract

Reviews | 151 broadcast in 1952 on German radio. Realistically, however, the presentation of print media sources alone has resulted in a tome of over 700 pages. Th erefo- re, the role of radio and fi lm in these Cold War discourses is one of the areas suggested for future studies. Th e authors make a compelling and well- supported argument for a reevaluation of the Austrian postwar literary canon with a large and well- documented body of texts. Th e biographical entries for the authors of the texts treated here is also helpful, since many of the names are not well known today. Clearly, there was a signi cant body of lit fi erature present that did not fit into the prevailing image of Austrian literary culture of the 1950s and early 1960s, due in part to its political nature in a period where relatively few favor- ed such topics. Th at image stands now partially corrected and awaits further scrutiny. Joseph McVeigh Smith College Micaela Latini, Die Korrektur des Lebens: Studien zu Th omas Bernhard.
