Austria existed in a political limbo between the fall of the Third Reich in 1945 and the reattainment of sovereignty in 1955. This discrete and culturally complex period has been largely ignored in the English-speaking world, and now Anthony Bushell seeks to redress that neglect by examining the wealth of poetry that was produced in Austria after Germany’s defeat. Bushell discovers that in Austrian literature a rejection of guilt over the war manifested itself as a marked reluctance to discuss life under Hitler. A wholly original contribution to our understanding of Austrian poetry, Bushell’s book will be of interest to anyone studying war’s impact on literature.
