These essays give new insight into the work of two Austrian writers exiled in the United States: "Charles Sealsfield," a runaway monk writing in English; and Ferdinand Kurnberger. A close reading of Kafka in the light of homosexual revelations from his recently published diaries, and a re-interpretation of Joseph Roth's Radetzkymarsch add to our understanding of masculinity, while a fresh look at Ingeborg Bachmann's novel Maline reveals much about gender relations in the period.
