Summary
  • Walter Schüblers Biographie porträtiert den extravaganten Lebenskünstler Anton Kuh in all seinen Facetten: den streitbaren Publizisten, der die laufenden Wiener und Berliner Ereignisse mit polemischer Verve glossierte; den hellwachen Chronisten der 1910er, 1920er und 1930er Jahre; den bekennenden ?Linksler±, der in der Auseinandersetzung mit den Nazis Kopf und Kragen riskierte; den ?Gegenteils-Fex±, der sich einen Spaß daraus machte, Karl Kraus über Jahre zu frotzeln; den Bohemien, der - programmatisch taktlos - keine Gelegenheit ausließ zu provozieren; den aufgekratzten Neurastheniker, der geradezu selbstmörderisch lebte; den fulminanten Stegreif-Redner, der seine Gedankengänge heißlaufen ließ und damit sein Publikum zu Beifallsstürmen hinriss. Diese erste Biographie des ?Sprechstellers± rekonstruiert auch dessen Hauptwerk - die Stegreif-Reden - und wirft alles über den Haufen, was an Gerüchten über die vermeintliche Wiener ?Lokalgröße± immer noch kursiert
  • Walter Schübler's biography portrays the extravagant life of the artist Anton Kuh in all its facets: the controversial publicist, who glossed over the current events in Vienna and Berlin with polemical verve; the wide-awake chroniclers of the 1910s, 1920s and 1930s; the self-confessed "leftist," who risked neck and neck in dealing with the Nazis; the "opposite Fex," which made a joke of teasing Karl Kraus for years; the bohemian who - programmatically tactless - did not miss any opportunity to provoke; the upbeat neurasthenic who lived suicidal; the fulminant impromptu speaker, who ran his train of thought, causing his audience to rush to applause. This first biography of the "communicator" also reconstructs his main work - the impromptu speeches - and throws everything over, which still circulates rumors about the supposed Viennese "local size". "Of course it's something, speaking Austrian or Yiddish, foolish, wanting to read literature from the world of yesterday to bump into contemporaries. Nevertheless, cow is uncommon today: as commissioned to order living point artists as a moral diasporist and critic who insists on being different from the Germans. Cow led a life on the run from the potato. Schübler does not say that, just as he leaves the big discourses of cow's time in the background, anyway. But he lets it - perhaps most expensive merit of a biography - cow pronounce itself "(SZ)
