The "Demolished Literature" of Karl Kraus' Vienna

This path tells one story about Viennese literature through Karl Kraus' Die demolierte Literatur, or "Demolished Literature." What led Karl to write his satirical manifesto? What other artists and writers had converged in Vienna in that moment? What cafes had been emerging and were, at 1897, open and welcoming what Kraus considered the purveyors of this demolished literature?
