The Bulgarian-born pupil and writer Elias Canetti (1905-1994) was once probably the most astute witnesses and analysts of the mass events and wars of the 1st half the 20 th century. Born a Sephardic Jew and raised within the Bulgarian and Ladino languages, he selected to put in writing in German, making a choice on as he did with eu literary and highbrow traditions. He was once presented the 1981 Nobel Prize in Literature for his oeuvre, which include dramas, essays, diaries, aphorisms, the unconventional Die Blendung (Auto-da-Fé), a three-volume autobiography, and the vast interdisciplinary treatise Masse und Macht (Crowds and Power). those writings, so much particularly Masse und Macht, exhibit Canetti's thought-provoking rules on tradition and the human psyche with certain specialise in the phenomena of energy, clash, and survival. Canetti's masterful prose, his linguistic ideas, his remarkable satires and conceits proceed to fascinate students and common readers alike, and his intellectually demanding, genre-bending writings merge concept and literature, essay and diary access. His philosophical and anthropological works are profoundly inspired through literature, whereas his literary texts are knowledgeable by means of his idea. The better half to the Works of Elias Canetti comprises unique essays through well known foreign students operating on the vanguard of Canetti feedback. They study the writings of this notable author and philosopher within the context of pre- and post-fascist Europe, offering a accomplished scholarly advent to Canetti. The essays comprise distinct interpretations of person texts in addition to finished thematic and theoretical reviews dedicated to Canetti's paintings as a part of the Western philosophical and significant tradition.

W. Norton, 2001). After this article went to press, Hanser published the posthumous Party im Blitz (Munich: Hanser, 2003), in which Canetti gives (among many other things) his account of the affair with Murdoch, including a rather harsh judgment of her intellectual accomplishments. 23 Fritz Arnold, “Die fremde Zunge gerettet,” Frankfurtur Rundschau, December 23, 1995. I once sent Canetti a seminar paper in which I suggested that the “episte- GOOD-BYE TO ALL THAT: CANETTI’S OBITUARIES E 39 mological critique” of Die Blendung was less radical than in Kafka.

Tongues Set Free Although there have always been saner voices that refreshingly defy such a simplistic dichotomization (and did so even prior to 1994) — here the names Susan Sontag, Ritchie Robertson, and Walter Sokel spring to mind — I want to suggest that Canetti’s death has set us free from the pressure of belonging to either one camp or the other. Of course Thomas Bernhard, too, famously managed to break free well before Canetti’s actual demise — recall Bernhard’s maliciously entertaining Leserbrief.

Canetti relates here that Joyce attended one of his readings in Zurich, but left early because he couldn’t understand the Viennese dialect (Canetti read from Hochzeit and Die Blendung). The interview is reprinted along with the obituary in Corriere della sera, August 19, 1994, 21. 3 The article “Elias Canetti — Seine Heimat war die deutsche Sprache” contains an excerpt of a letter in which Canetti apparently requests to be buried in Zurich. 4 Hanser Verlag has announced that Sven Hanuschek will take up this all important challenge; see Fachdienst Germanistik, April 2001.
