Denken in Antinomien. Die Darstellung des Ersten Weltkrieges in Richard Schaukals „Eherne Sonette“(1914)
The representation of the First World War in Richard Schaukals „brass sonnets“ served the purposes of the political propaganda.

Besides, the politicisation of the aesthetics also entails the politicisation of the art what has found her succinct picture in the „brass sonnets“.
