The Antioch Review: “Attention!”
Heinrich Böll’s “Cause of Death: Hooked Nose” (translated by Robert C. Conard) captures Nobel laureate Böll’s vivid imagery about the corollary of unfettered hatred, unchallenged propaganda, and fearful inertia for countries, communities, and consciences. The fallout bestowed upon those assisting in the pursuit of a final solution that produces explosions of guilt and erupted minds. Poignant then. Pertinent today. review.antiochcollege.edu
