La vie de Balzac est un prodigieux roman. Accablé de dettes, immergé dans un titanesque labeur d'écriture, mort à cinquante et un ans, juste après son mariage avec celle qu'il avait si longtemps attendue, le romancier de La Comédie humaine incarne un mythe, celui du créateur rivalisant avec Dieu, et foudroyé comme Prométhée. Loin d'être au second plan dans l'oeuvre de Stefan Zweig, cette biographie, publiée après sa mort, l'occupa dix années durant. Et c'est toute son expérience d'homme et d'écrivain que résume l'auteur d'Ivresse de la métamorphose dans cette passionnante évocation de Balzac en qui il voyait l'un des phares de la littérature européenne. Sans doute l'un des plus puissants et profonds portraits que nous possédions de l'auteur de La Comédie humaine. Nicole Casanova, Le Quotidien de Paris. Balzac était né lui aussi sur les ruines d'un monde et à l'aube d'une société nouvelle

'He who thinks freely for himself, honours all freedom on earth.' Stefan Zweig was already an emigre - driven from a Europe torn apart by brutality and totalitarianism - when he found, in a damp cellar, a copy of Michel de Montaigne's Essais. Montaigne would become Zweig's last great occupation, helping him make sense of his own life and his obsessions-with personal freedom, with the sanctity of the individual. Through his writings on suicide, he would also, finally, lead Zweig to his death. With the intense psychological acuity and elegant prose so characteristic of Zweig's fiction, this account of Montaigne's life asks how we ought to think, and how to live. It is an intense and wonderful insight into both subject and biographer

27 editions published between 1954 and 2011 in German and Undetermined and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Zweigs frühe Erzählung entstand 1913 und wurde noch im gleichen Jahr publiziert, erscheint hier aber in der von ihrem Autor überarbeiteten Fassung des Buchdrucks von 1925, die Zweig um zahlreiche, "aus seiner späteren Sicht offenbar allzu 'expressive' Passagen gekürzt" hat, so der Herausgeber Michael Scheffel. Die beklemmende Atmosphäre der Geschichte, in der die Hauptfigur, von einer ihr unbekannten Frau wegen ihres Geliebten erpresst wird, hat Zweig meisterhaft eingefangen - einer der Gründe, warum dieser Text inzwischen zum ausgewiesenen Schulklassiker geworden ist
