Die vorliegende Biographie enthält neue Entdeckungen, die bisherige biographische Darstellungen korrigieren. Hans Weichselbaum erzählt die schwierige Lebensgeschichte eines begabten jungen Mannes, beginnend mit der Übersiedlung der Familie nach Salzburg, wo den Trakls der gesellschaftliche Aufstieg gelingt. Kurz nach der Jahrhundertwende beginnt Georg Trakl mit frühen literarischen Versuchen, es sind – ganz ungewöhnlich für den späteren Lyriker – Theaterstücke. Etwa in die gleiche Zeit fallen auch erste Experimente mit verschiedenen Drogen, von denen Trakl Zeit seines Lebens nicht mehr loskommen wird. Nach Ausbruch des Ersten Weltkriegs 1914 meldet er sich freiwillig als Sanitäter. Die erlebten Gräuel der Schlacht bei Grodek stürzen ihn in Verzweiflung, ein Nervenzusammenbruch und Suizidversuch lassen ihn selbst zum Opfer werden. Hans Weichselbaum führt die Lebensgeschichte des Salzburger Expressionisten Trakl mit neuen Forschungserkenntnissen zusammen. Die Biographie wurde aus Anlass von Trakls a hundred. Todestag neu überarbeitet.
