Reinhard Kaiser-Mühlecker’s characters are prisoners of their origins, their language. You can’t escape your past, and the lack of alternatives in your circumstances comsumes the urge to flee from the present. Kaiser-Mühlecker’s characters are searching for redemption, without knowing it. External transformation occurs faster than the internal readiness for it. The result is helplessness, muteness. Kaiser-Mühlecker demonstrates a virtuosic ability to create literature from this in a profoundly Austrian way.#
