Franz Jung was involved in expressionism and Berlin Dada and was active for a while in left-radical politics in the early years of the Weimar Republic until he became disillusioned. While acknowledging the differences between Jung's various periods, this study also attempts to show the many continuities in his works. In addition to discussing their literary merit, this study also shows that Jung's works are of interest for their contributions to literary movements in Germany in the first decades of this century and because many are important documents of this time.Críticas:
-The book is an excellent introduction to a 20th-century sufferer whose literary, political and revolutionary pretensions were largely unsuccessful but whose sincerity and energetic responses are recorded not least in recently published diaries. The categories used in the subtitle amply illustrate the apparent disjunctions in Jung's life; the resulting overall view reappraises a wrongly neglected important figure.- (Brian Keith-Smith, New German Studies)
