(p.69) Chapter Two Karl Kraus and the Jewish Self-Hatred Question
The Anti-Journalist

This chapter examines Karl Kraus' critique of the German-Jewish literati. It evaluates the strategic value of “Heine and the Consequences” by investigating how and why Kraus exploited the symbolic power of anti-Semitic language. It highlights the diverse patterns of Kraus' anti-Semitic rhetoric and explains how “Heine and the Consequences” differs from Kraus' most bigoted antisemitic moments. This chapter also discusses Kraus' thoughts on the Jewish self-hatred question.

Keywords:   German-Jewish literati, Karl Kraus, Heine and the Consequences, anti-Semitic language, Jewish self-hatred
