Kraus presents us with the accouterments of an artificial myth rather than a culturally determined one. If certain works suggest allegorical connotations of primitive or tribal sensibility, equally Kafkaesque and Sadean, they are created for a decidedly modernist proletariat tribal sensibility, a culture for whom ironic humor and fatalistic despair are interchangeable articulations for describing the same experience.
