His narcissism, which has played an essential role in relation to his suicide, has its roots in his childhood. Direct as well as indirect hints at suicide were not lacking during the last two years of Zweig's life, which were increasingly filled with depression and anxiety. The preface to his autobiography "The World of Yesterday" may be interpreted as an indirect announcement of suicide. Why not just leave it at that without kicking the corpse? He was a great aphorist without a sense of humour, a lack Hofmann holds against Zweig, and a basket-case rolled up in one.

Where does this leave us? The worm turns.

A little perspective, man! If Zweig was really as dithery, duplicitous, weak, cowardly, humourless, snobbish, conceited, dull, putrid select word to taste , and as universally despised by his contemporaries as Hofmann makes out, then why did the LRB think it worth devoting a lengthy review to his republished autobiography?

Customer Reviews

The LRB should think twice before publishing unjustified and unexplained attacks on one of the greatest painters ever. One is tempted to ask why Hofmann chooses to dish the dirt so prolifically when a simple sentence of hatred would have sufficed. To have someone hate a writer and his lifestyle, disparage his work and begrudge his success is no rare event in the history of literature.

Klawiter , University of Notre Dame, Indiana. At last someone had dared state the obvious. Not that these artists are uninteresting. Someone with a strong stomach and a taste for tragic irony should write a book about large-scale and mural painting in the two decades leading to Mons and Passchendaele. Klimt has a place of honour in their ranks.

Main navigation He saw it as embodying the best of a great deal of what Europe was. Morning Star? Youre done!. Married to Stefan Zweig by Friderike Zweig? The private life of Stefan Zweig in England Zweig was the impossible exile as an individual in the sense that he could not have been more difficult, more disconsolate, more unable to adjust.

Filmography Zweig is both an absolutely natural and an absolutely dreadful writer; the one quality of course does not preclude the other. Our only obligation is to live decently until the end of our days and we shall certainly manage that Alfred accompanied the unpleasantness between his brother and his step-daughters, the move to London, the appearance of Lotte, the tos-and-fros of the separation from Friderike, but their communication mostly took place by phone. In a hurry and practical, he preferred real time communication.

The death and life of Stefan Zweig.

When in the house in Salzburg was searched by the Austrian police looking for guns, Stefan returned to London and asked his brother to make the official announcement of his departure from the country. He had no trouble obtaining a visa for entering Switzerland he left Vienna two weeks after the arrival of the Germans and even managed to get authorization for their mother to go to Paris.

The cousin Egon Frankl was called upon by Alfred to supervise the old employees taking care of the firm.

Egon was forced to sleep elsewhere. Alfred phoned from Zurich every night and then sent news to the brother in London. For as long as she could, Ida went on walks every day. Soon, the Nazis forbid Jews from sitting on park benches. After 10 days unconscious, Ida died alone and was buried in the Jewish part of the main cemetery beside Moritz.

The only relation still there, cousin Egon, whom Ida considered a third son, then moved to the Garnissongasse apartment, where he died the next year.

The brothers were reunited in early in New York, when Stefan, accompanied by Lotte, began a coast to coast lecture tour. Alfred and his wife Stefanie were comfortably installed right by Central Park 18 W 70th St , as usual more concerned with themselves than with the turbulence around them.
