By Hermann Broch,Egon Vietta,Silvio Vietta,Roberto Rizzo

Der hier erstmals komplett abgedruckte Briefwechsel zwischen Hermann Broch und Egon Vietta gehört zu den interessantesten Dichterzeugnissen des 20. Jahrhunderts und speziell der Zeit um den Zweiten Weltkrieg. Diskutiert werden hier die neuesten philosophischen Strömungen - z.B. Phänomenologie, Existentialismus und adverse Theologie -, die Umbrüche in der deutschen Medien- und Publikationslandschaft, vor allem aber: die geistige scenario der Literatur in dieser Zeit. Darüber lassen die unterschiedlichen Lebenssituationen der Schreiber jedoch noch weit hinausblicken: schreibt Broch seine Briefe zum größten Teil aus dem US-amerikanischen Exil, so spiegeln diejenigen Viettas die beklemmende Lage des Daheimgebliebenen. Brochs Briefe verdeutlichen jedoch auch, wie sehr er in seinem Roman "Der Tod des Vergil" noch aus dem Exil gegen die Bedrohung durch die Nationalsozialisten anschreibt. Neben einem ausführlichen Kommentar stellt das Nachwort die Biographien beider Dichter in den Kontext des politischen Widerstands: Broch aus dem Exil, Vietta bei der "Weißen Rose Hamburg".

Tanto es así que su amigo íntimo y editor póstumo, Max Brod, no los angeles incluyó en el volumen dedicado a su correspondencia, sino en el que reúne sus escritos literarios.

A este criterio tiene que haber contribuido el hecho de que Kafka pasó (o hizo pasar) a máquina el manuscrito e incluso llegó a corregir los angeles versión en limpio, cuidado reservado exclusivamente a los relatos que serían dados a l. a. imprenta. Incluso Brod sostiene, en su propia biografía, que el padre de Kafka no period el tirano que pinta su hijo, una razón más para leer esta carta con mucha cautela, con mayor predisposición a leer literatura que no ficción.
