Aims and Scope
Ödön von Horváth (1901‑1938) is one of the most renowned writers of the 20th century. The Vienna Edition provides the critical edition of his complete works which scholars have been demanding for a long time. The edition contains all of Horváth’s completed and uncompleted works together with all the author’s letters and biographical documents. The secure final versions of the texts, the exact account of the process of their composition and the critical re-evaluation of many sources reveal a different view of Horváth’s work, his way of working and his biography.
