Another Teutonic digression…

20 Jan

…since I went on that whole Habsburg/Wittlesbach tangent (below) of crazy Germans a couple of posts ago.  THIS is the best, most comprehensive, can’t-put-it-down book written about a much written about topic: turn of twentieth century Viennese art and cultural life, the civilization’s love of beauty, psychoanalytic perspective on life, and philosophizing and intellectualizing of art without sterilizing it away.  What a fevered period of artistic fermentation it covers.  It’s a book given to me by a good friend when we were in grad school and shared an obsession with the same period. Thanks B. Much love.
