Summary:The early work of the Viennese author Hermann Broch is inconceivable without contact with Ludwig von Ficker, editor of the Innsbruck art and culture magazine 'Der Brenner' (1910-1954). Ficker offered Broch the opportunity to publish his first essays and a poem in 1912/13. The individual investigations and overview presentations in this anthology investigate the question of how Broch's collaboration on 'Der Brenner' affected his further literary and philosophical production. The focus is on ethically motivated cultural criticism and modern aesthetics. The individual studies show traces that Soeren Kierkegaard's thinking (mediated by Theodor Haecker in 'Der Brenner') left behind on Broch, deal with Broch's early Thomas Mann reading (Death in Venice) and demonstrate the long-lasting influence of Karl Kraus. Mention should also be made of the conflicting relationship with Carl Dallago, one of the most important contributors to 'Der Brenner' at the time. Through Ficker's magazine Broch also got to know the work of Theodor Haecker, whose book Virgil, Father of the Occident later gave an important impetus to Broch's beginning of his Virgil novel. In 1937 Broch re-established the long-interrupted contact with Ludwig von Ficker. At that time he wrote the political League of Nations resolution against human rights violations by totalitarian states, to which an article is also dedicated. This anthology helps to close a research gap in both Broch and the 'Der Brenner' research. Once again, the supraregional importance of Ficker's magazine for literary and cultural historiography in the first half of the 20th century is evident.
