Acknowledgements I wish to thank George Caf fentzis, Tom Couser, Neil Donahue, Lisa Dres- ner, David Friedkin, Zane Friedkin, Nancy Kennedy, Greg Pell, and my anonymous readers for their helpful comments on early drafts of parts of this book. I also want to acknowledge the encouragement given me by the late Wendelin Schmidt-Dengler and his having given generously of his time. I want, also, to thank Hans Adler for his encouragement and Jost Hermand for his willingness to publish my book in his Oxford series German Life and Civilization at Peter Lang. Finally, and above all, I want to express my gratitude to Hans Höller for his time and for his positive response and willingness to accept my outside-the-box Marxist/marxisant approach to Bernhard’s work. I remember with pleasure our conversations in Salzburg and Gmunden. I also want to thank Hans Adler for granting me permission to republish my essay, “The Social(ist) Construction of Art in Thomas Bernhard’s Alte Meister,” in my book. It first appeared in Monatshefte, Volume 101, Number 3, Fall 2009. I want, as well, to thank Provost Herman Berliner and Dean Bernard J. Firestone of the College of Arts and Sciences. My project was facilitated by a junior faculty leave and by consistent and generous funding through Hofstra’s Faculty Research and Development Grants and its Presidential Research Awards for the purchase of texts and for research trips to Austria. I am also grateful to the Thomas Bernhard Archives in Gmunden and especially to Astrid Hinterholzer....
