Gedichte und Geschichte: Zur poetischen und politischen Rede in Österreich. Beiträge zur Jahrestagung der Franz Werfel-StipendiatInnen am 16. und 17.April 2010 in Wien
The book contains the contributions of the 18th annual conference Franz Werfel-StipendiatInnen.
The representation of the First World War in Richard Schaukals „brass sonnets“ served the purposes of the political propaganda. The form of the sonnet, the three-part composition and the use of bombastic metaphors were subordinated to this purpose. Besides, the politicisation of the aesthetics also entails the politicisation of the art what has found her succinct picture in the „brass sonnets“.
