    1. Stefan Zweig was an Austrian writer who published many short stories, multiple biographies and historical text, and several plays and by the 1930 s became the world s most translated author His incredible popularity was cut short by Adolf Hitler s rise to power As a pacifist and internationalist, Zweig was deeply opposed to Nazism and left his native Austria for England, where he met his second wife, Lotte Attman As Hitler s troops successfully advanced westward, the Zweigs crossed the Atlantic [...]

    2. I consider him a master of short poetic novels.Personal favorites Letter from an unknown woman and Amok.

    3. Either I ve come late to the work of Stefan Zweig, or his work has come late to me Long ago during the 1980 s, when I did my literature degree and in the years around it, I assiduously tried to work my way through the classics In about 1990 I thought job done at least as far as I was ever going to and since then I ve mainly read non fiction and when I ve delved into fiction it has either been to read something new or to re read something old that I loved Meanwhile Zweig, aided by some new and, j [...]

    4. The following review was found among the papers of a certain C Davis, a provincial schoolteacher whose name was not widely known, but enjoyed cordial relations with most of the people who crossed his transom Certain of them were mutual friends shared between us, and said friends, who were charged with sorting through his personal effects Herr Davis left no widow, no heirs before his untimely death , found at the bottom of the farthest drawer of his aged writing desk a document concealed beneath [...]

    5. So many feelings felt, so many roller coasters experienced I ll be contemplating this collection of evocative and demanding short stories for some time Somehow, the author manages to create a wide array of main characters, both male and female in an astounding variety of plots and circumstances, managing to invest you enough in each story to have your heart twisted, broken, or swollen by the end of each story This a marvelous study in the capacity of the human imagination and explores wide varie [...]

    6. A beautifully translated collection that was an absolute pleasure to read I published my review in Assignment Magazine online today, however so please head over there to read it t frMDaFb4w4

    7. I loved the look of this book, a bright orange linen cover, small in length and width but so deep And the writing was beautiful, passionate But like the Goldfinch, too long Was tired of it long before it ended, but had committed myself, so plowed through til the end I love his voice and his insight into the human experience of emotions But couldve used a few less stories

    8. I was intrigued with Zweig after viewing The Grand Budapest Hotel A collection of intriguing short stories, Zweig has an intricate writing style Very stylistic with lots of detail A unique collection of stories.

    9. An incomparable style of Stefan Zweig brought me so much pleasure while reading his novels Each story was full of strong emotions and feelings Definitely, must read.

    10. These stories were so reminiscent of O Henry in that there are these deep psychological discoveries being made without underlines They are made in the genius story themes which create extreme or mundane situations which in a way make the story write itself they are made in the language of the characters, in the choices they make This book enveloped me in the world of very different people that seemed unrelatable and unlikable at first but gradually gave me the compassion to understand their poin [...]

    11. Haven t read Stefan Zweig You should Really But be prepared melancholy awaits His stories have such twisting plots, lots of psychology Maybe 1 of 22 had a happy ending Quote from said story Nothing makes one as healthy as happiness, and there is no greater happiness than making someone else happy Well, I don t think Zweig was after his happiness or his readers happiness in these stories But they are still fascinating.

    12. I rarely remember the stories of the books I ve read Even though I might have read this one at least 5 years ago, I can still go back to some of the characters and stories in it Zweig s descriptions are vivid images, so much so that I feel like this book is somewhere I ve been to, rather than something s I ve read.Powerful.

    13. Forgotten Dreams A woman s lover from earlier days visits her in her garden Memories are subtly revealed to the reader of her true feelings towards her He is ultimately turned away when he learns she did, in fact, marry for money Who are we to judge someone, if they love a lifestyle than a person or love itself In the Snow A group of Jews flee their town as the countrymen attack and burn the Jews in towns nearby and get closer The carts get stuck in the snow and they all slowly freeze to death [...]

    14. I rated the stories contained in this book individually whenever possible, but I have to give the book itself five stars what an anthology I don t have the originals to compare it to, but the translation read so fluidly that I m sure it must be good Not to mention probably the only translation available of many of these stories, not a single one of which was bad Zweig is a fairly recent discovery of mine, but has quickly taken up a special place on my bookshelves He has a unique ability to be un [...]

    15. Over the course of the year, I would read one, maybe two, of Zweig s stories every month He is one of my favorite writers and although I love him, I think it is better to slowly approach this collection with long breaks in between My favorite stories are stories like Amok and Fantastic Night, where characters are quite suddenly overtaken with emotion to the point it is overflowing within them In these moments where they are wild with emotions, these characters look outwards at the world with a b [...]

    16. In 12 short stories, Zweig describes historically significant moments in a story like narrative Transplanting the reader into various turning moments e.g the Sack of Constantinople My favourite was the discovery of the Pacific Ocean Listening to the story reminded me of John Keats s rather epic poem, as one heard it read by the late Mr.Buckley Then felt I like some watcher of the skiesWhen a new planet swims into his ken Or like stout Cortez when with eagle eyesHe star d at the Pacific and all h [...]

    17. Zweig is one of my favorite authors While this collection includes 22 of his stories, Pushkin Press had previously issued a number of these works as separate entities It s great to have them assembled here, in fluid, contemporary translations My favorite remains The Invisible Collection, perhaps one of the most touching stories I ve ever read, and a classic Zweig structure, where he meets someone on a train, who then relays this event that had just happened to him That kind of framing occurs fre [...]

    18. I am often struck and carried away by Zweigs metaphoric descriptions, his language can be very functional and wonderful at the same time As for the stories in this book, I believe they deserve pause and digestion than you will find in the one long read of all 22 stories I recommend some breaks along the way and at some point you will also need to pick up his most famous story, the chess novella which is not part of this particular collection Anyway, this is a good read and conveys than anythin [...]

    19. Zweig is a technician, and I mean that in the best possible way His stories are, in some ways, really limited they re all upper class stories of manners with one really striking exception , each one begins with some slight excuse to tell a tale because he refuses to start in media res, they re all told from a single character s viewpoint but they re worth reading Zweig s moving, but in sort of predictable ways to some extent, if you ve read one story, you ve read over 2 3rds of them not to say t [...]

    20. Having read Zweig s Marie Antoinette, which is quite simply a splendid book a book written by a lucid, intelligent and passionate writer, a true master of the art of historical narrative I have to say that I was seriously disappointed with these collected stories These stories belong to another time, but not in the good sense Mellifluous, ponderous, late romantic bunk Maybe these stories read better in German I hope so If you are looking for a master of the short story, you will not find him her [...]

    21. only now did I come to life again myself, knowing that I was near you, you, my only dream I did not guess that in reality I was as far from your mind now, when only the thin, bright glass pane stood between you and my radiant gaze, as if valleys, mountains and rivers separated us.

    22. Reviewed by Nat Bernstein for Jewish Book Council jewishbookcouncil book the collected stories of stefan zweig

    23. I found the collected stories to be a combined study on human behavior Each story examines behavior, with great detail The stories were not only period pieces, but social statements regarding ethics morals, war and pacifism, and the living standards of the elite versus the poor.
