Sternstunden der Menschheit - Decisive Moments in History

I first read Sternstunden der Menschheit (Decisive Moments in History) by the Austrian writer Stefan Zweig as a young man. The collection of miniatures about events that changed the world, such as Robert Scott and his expedition to reach the South Pole, is achingly beautiful and as suspenseful as a novel that must be devoured at once. 226 more words

Confusion - Stefan Zweig

Editorial note: there will be spoilers in the penultimate paragraph of this post as it is impossible to express my concerns with this novella otherwise.

Olaganüstü Bir Gece

Viyana’da da burjuva aileye mensup bir adamın yaşadığı ve hayatının değişmesine sebep olan olağanüstü bir gece’yi anlatıyor kitap. Stefan Zweig yazdığı 69 sayfadan oluşan kısacık bir kitap ama bence derinliği sayfa sayısının kat kat üstünde. 533 more words
