Abstract:

Long considered among Schnitzler's greatest accomplishments, Professor Bernhardi brings together its author's treatment of anti-Semitism, an important social problem in Austria then and now, and his penetrating study of its title character. Bernhardi, a difficult hero in the mold of Ibsen's Stockmann (An Enemy of the People), is made to suffer from the reaction, not always based on principles as high as his own, to his professionally ethical behavior. The other works in this volume treat a favorite theme of Schnitzler's: the misuse of language. Each of the three one-act plays comprising Comedy of Words touches on its misuse by an individual--a physician, an actor, a writer--in a private capacity. Fink and Fliederbusch deals with the problem in a context of journalistic ethics.
