ABSTRACT
The article explores the contemporary literature of Central Europe. It claims that the short stories written by Hungarian writer France Molñar are not wholesome such as his idea about women as able to fool men all the time. Furthermore, it mentions that several German men and women are seeking to express themselves through literary medium including Oswald Spengler whose constant theme is about the fall of the Western civilization because of Christian warfare.
