...Wittgenstein formulating the fundamentals of the Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus during nighttime duty manning a spotlight on a military riverboat on the Eastern Front of WWI... this stuff give me the shivers...

...Wittgenstein indirectly became a patron of Rilke, through a large donation to a Viennese review, the very week Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated... history be crazy!

Decaying Hapsburg Vienna; intriguing familial suicides; preternaturally gifted children; Brahms, Mendelssohn, Klimt; and a brief entrance and exeunt by a young Hitler! This book is already epic...

Jimmy so much gossip!


Geoff I know, it's practically The Real World at Cambridge, with like fucking insane geniuses!


Jimmy I actually remember writing down "Herr Schinckel-Winkel" in a notebook while I was reading that book also. I was quite amused.


Geoff and for some reason it's funnier that it's Lytton Strachey saying it...
