Csaroda and the Hungarian Reformation: A Travel Essay – Part I

"You cannot climb the tower of the church in Csaroda. But if you could you would look out across a flat land stretching away from you in all directions. The horizon to the east is today in Ukraine. In every other direction you are looking at country that has been part of Hungary for more than a thousand years. This province is called Bereg. Only a small part of historical Bereg remains within Hungary today. The rest of it, including its capital – Beregszász – lies to the north and today within Ukraine."

Patriarchy and the Traumatised Protagonist in Franz Kafka

"There is an acute sense of the fragmentation of patriarchy in the fin de siècle fictions of Kafka, and the accompanying sense of trauma in his protagonists. If Metamorphosis may be counted as fantasy literature, then it seems that Kafka had to leave the world of the real and enter the fictional world of the eroded man, the liquid boundary, that place where things are not what they seem, of the fractured self, in order to express his unease."

The Last Coronation: Mystery and Strength

"For a day at least, Vienna was honouring, rather than merely profiting from, the source of its lustre, as the casket of Otto von Habsburg was borne from Stephansdom to the Kapuzinerkirche. Otto, who died at his Bavarian home on 4 July 2011, had been the last living link with a sacred and regal Central Europe that the twentieth century’s furies so cruelly swept away. Nearly ninety-five years earlier, a four-year-old Otto had walked in white as a new Crown Prince, following the funeral cortege of Emperor Franz Josef along the same route that his own body now took."

The Perils of Popular History – Simon Winder, Danubia: a Personal History of Habsburg Europe

"This book, though not without virtues, illustrates the perils of popular history. The book is about the Habsburg past, yet far too often Winder has no convincing grasp of what he is dealing with. It is written in a light, jokey style which sometimes works, sometimes jars. Musil gets a mention, but Kakania and Absurdistan do not. Well, it is a personal account."
