Famous Austrian Author.

The following biography came for Find A Grave.[1]

Writer. He embarked on law studies in 1914, then he was moved as a foot soldier to Galicia (Poland) and to Bucovina (Ukraine). In 1916 he became a war prisoner in Russia. This is where he decided to become an author. After multiple moves and troubles he was released in the summer of 1920 and went back to Vienna. He continued his studies and changed his subjects to psychology and history. During this time he published his first articles in newspapers and started to work on poems and on his first novel. In 1925 he completed his Phd-studies; his two books published two years ago had been unsuccessful. His relationship with national socialism that had been on the rise in Austria since 1933 was contradictory: In his works the Nazi-ideals were never represented but he was a member of the NSDAP party and used his thus gained connections to publish his works in their newspapers and tried to get his books published (without success). In 1936 he had started to distance himself gradually from the party (but never left it) and converted to catholicism in 1940. From 1951 onwards his books started increasingly to get published and they gained publicity and a very positive reception. From this time on he received many Austrian and German literary prizes. In 1966 in Germany a literary prize in his honour was donated on the occasion of Doderer's 100th birth anniversary: the Heimito-von-Doderer literary prize.
Hic et nunc, semper paratus! was Doderer's Latin motto during his lifetime. It means: Here and now, always prepared.
