It explains that Canetti was able to present his personal experience of the currency devaluation in Germany in his autobiography Die Fackel im Ohr. The chapter also discusses how his essay Masse und Macht clarified the cultural impact of inflation and describes his allegorization of the inflationary process in his novel Die Blendung.
