The Third Walpurgis Night

Karl Kraus

Yale University Press

This chapter discusses the author's various encounters with language. It introduces Emanuel bin Gorion. The official commentary explains that the criticism which Bin Gorion, as a Zionist, “consistently directed at assimilated Jewish authors, exemplifies the Jewish-racial principle.” The chapter, however, presents criticisms against Bin Gorion, arguing against his reputation as a standard-bearer in the struggle against the anti-German spirit. It also offered the author's services, however indirectly, to the authority now entrusted with policing the German language. In doing so, the chapter chronicles the author's engagements with Cologne Radio, as a means for Kraus to push through with his own linguistic agendas.
