The Declaration Dec 1929 Literary World, pub Willy Haas, the inspiration for which was in all probability a painting, and which Camill Hoffmann had given to him from the estate of the ‘young, high-talented Hermann Ungar. 38 At which point the text, which although brief, belongs to the most impressive of Ungar’s works, but when it was actually written is uncertain. Its mention of a refurbishment ‘in the Brunnenstrasse’ says that the story is set in Berlin, but this does not necessarily mean that it was written during Ungar’s time in Berlin. The text is experimental, a trial in which the borders between reality and imagination become blurred, thus it is feasible that it stems from the last months of Ungar’s life, from the period when he was attempting to find new paths and new inspiration.

    *The objectives of the anthology, set out mainly on a chronological basis, was to illustrate clearly the literary development of Ungar, by limiting the selection to short texts and by using autobiographical passages, particularly those taken from his diary (inasmuch as these were still available) and to depict his wrestle with origins. The anthology contained works which, in the main, had not been available since original publication, starting with some of Ungar’s earliest prose with its neo-romantic nuances Sanatorium (1919) and Letter to a Woman (1919), continuing with the aggressive-satiric sketch Tulip (1925), the literary journalistic piece Do Horses Really Scream? and the surrealistic Confessions (1929), which reflects the ghostly breath of The Maimed, right up to the bitter comedy of Bobek Marries or the literary journalistic piece Death Advertises (1929), finishing with some of his later, inner-analytical prose Mellon, the 'Actor' (1929) and Alexander (1929). The collection includes various autobiographic texts such as From a Diary (1922), a letter to his friend Ludwig Pinner (19.4.1922), Wallenstein from me (1928), Tomy helps to write (1929), Diary notes from 1928 and a brief self-caricature written in the year 1929. Pride of place was given to the monologue prose sketch The Caliph (1928), a clear reiteration of Ungar’s main themes, i.e. suffering from reality and opposition to middle-class order. The anthology included text evidence as an attachment, an epilogue as well as a brief bibliography of the most important secondary literature.
