Chapter Summary

On the occasion of Max Brod's 100th birthday (24 May 1984), Peter Demetz published an article in the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, stating with much regret that Brod had almost completely vanished from the perception of the literary public. A certain interest was focused on Brod the Zionist; one only finds a few essays regarding single literary or philosophical texts. Only one study appeared in the mentioned period, that is in 1992, with reference to Tycho Brahe: "Angoisse et créativité dans Tycho Brahes Weg zu Gott" by Marie-Odile Blum. Brod's novel Tycho Brahes Weg zu Gott has found attention again: Arno A. Gassmann in his study on the father-son conflict in authors of the Prague Circle also deals with Tycho Brahe, and since 2007 a new edition of the English translation by Felix Warren Crosse (1928) is available again, with an introduction by Peter Fenves.
