Dear Stella:
Have just finished reading Austria"
by which I was enchanted as well as
instructed. My! how erudite you are, Where did
you dig up all those stories ?
A trifle alarmed that it may attract more
tourists,which I'm sure you don't welcome
any more than I do. (Thanks , by the way,
for the reference to my garage.).
Am very curious to learn more about "The Life
and Adventure s of Peter Prosch." Is it in print?
Shouldn't it be translated?
As you say, the relation betwen art and society
is very odd. Why should the Vienna of 1890-1918
have produced such a florescence,? (Chester can
appreciate Bruckner better than I).. Even odder to
me is the Biedermayer period, No one can
possibly approve of Metternich's police state,yet,
in a more liberal mileieu, could Stifter,
Raimund, Nestroy, have written what they did?
Hope this reaches you. Looking forward to seeing you
in Sept[]
love and admiration Wystan
