Karl Kraus, widely regarded as one of the greatest satirists of the twentieth century, was primarily a prose writer, producing thousands of essays and aphorisms. He also wrote much poetry, which was collected in nine volumes entitled Worte in Versen (1916-1930; words in verse). Most of Kraus’s writings first appeared in his own journal, Die Fackel (the torch).
