Über den Autor

Stefan Zweig was one of the most popular and widely translated writers of the early twentieth century. Born into an Austrian-Jewish family in 1881, he became a leading figure in Vienna's cosmopolitan cultural world and was famed for his gripping novellas and vivid psychological biographies. In 1934, following the Nazis' rise to power, Zweig fled Austria, first for England, where he wrote his famous novel Beware of Pity, then the United States and finally Brazil. It was here that he completed his acclaimed autobiography The World of Yesterday, a lament for the golden age of a Europe destroyed by two world wars. The articles and speeches in Messages from a Lost World were written as Zweig, a pacifist and internationalist, witnessed this destruction and warned of the threat to his beloved Europe. On 23 February 1942, Zweig and his second wife Lotte were found dead, following an apparent double suicide.

    Sternstunden der Menschheit is probably Zwieg's best-known work among German readers - it's a collection of anything from five to fourteen (depending on which edition you read) short sketches of "critical moments" in human history. The subjects are quite freely chosen: political/military moments (Lenin's sealed train, Waterloo, the fall of Constantinople), moments of discovery (Scott in the Antarctic, Nuñez de Balboa in Darien, Suter in California), moments of artistic creation (Goethe coming home from Marienbad, Handel writing Messiah, Rouget de Lisle writing the song that would become the Marseillaise), personal moments (Dostoievsky's reprieve from execution, Tolstoy's escape from his wife).The collection seems to be mostly about the sheer pleasure of story-telling: there is no obvious didactic or political purpose. Zweig obviously doesn't have a lot of sympathy with Men of Destiny, but does have a soft spot for heroic failures like Rouget de Lisle, Suter and Capt. Scott. I found his free-verse account of Dostoievsky in front of the firing squad a bit cold and generic, but his sympathy and engagement with the misbehaving elderly geniuses Goethe and Tolstoy is completely convincing. Goethe was already in the 1927 edition, whilst Tolstoy was added in 1940, so this clearly isn't entirely an autobiographical sympathy.Enjoyable, but a bit fluffy.

    Wonderful writing. Great stories. I learned a lot. I did not already know the details surrounding these events. Glad i read this book.
