La ronde by Arthur Schnitzler( Book )

324 editions published between 1897 and 2020 in 12 languages and held by 2,090 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published for private circulation in Vienna in 1900, Arthur Schnitzler's famous play looks at the sexual morality and class ideology of his day through a series of sexual encounters between pairs of characters. When published publicly in 1903, it became an immediate best-seller, scandalized Viennese society, and a year later was censored. Schnitzler was accused of pornography and worse. In 1922 Freud wrote to him that "you have learned through intuition - though actually as a result of sensitive introspection - everything that I have had to unearth by laborious work on other persons." By choosing characters across the social spectrum, La Ronde offers a powerful view of how sexual contact transgresses boundaries of class. Nicholas Rudall's new translation sensitively captures the language distinctions of the representative characters in the play while providing a remarkably playable script."--Jacket

Rhapsody : a dream novel by Arthur Schnitzler( Book )

238 editions published between 1926 and 2020 in 9 languages and held by 1,647 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Like his Viennese contemporary Sigmund Freud, the doctor and dramatist Arthur Schnitzler (1862-1931) was a bold pioneer in exploring the dark tangled roots of human sexuality." "Arthur Schnitzler is probably most famous for La Ronde, a play too scandalous to publish or perform in his own lifetime but whose daisy-chain of couplings inspired both Max Ophuls's classic film and David Hare's modernized version, The Blue Room, which played to sell-out audiences in the West End and on Broadway. Dream Story is an equally erotic work, in which a married couple are first traumatized and then achieve a new depth of understanding by confessing to each other their sexual fantasies, dream-like adventures and might-have-beens ..." "Taking us on a guided tour of Vienna's seedy cafes, redlight district, decadent villas, hospitals and morgue, Schnitzler uncovers the violence and depravity lurking beneath the surface of civilized society." "Dream Story is the inspiration for the film Eyes Wide Shut, co-written by Stanley Kubrick and Frederic Raphael."--Jacket
Fräulein Else; a novel by Arthur Schnitzler( Book )

Else T., fille d'un avocat viennois, se trouve pour quelques jours de vacances dans un station thermale italienne. Là, elle reçoit une lettre de sa mère, dans laquelle elle lui prie de demander d'urgence un prêt à Dorsday, riche marchand d'objets d'arts, car son père a perdu au jeu de l'argent appartenant à ses pupilles et sera bientôt arrêté s'il ne peut pas rembourser. Else va voir Dorsday et lui explique la situation de sa famille. Il consent à prêter les 30.000 florins nécessaires, mais exige en contrepartie l'autorisation de pouvoir contempler Else nue. Else réagit violemment à cela, mais réfléchit au cours de la soirée sur le dilemme de sa situation. Partagée entre une fidélité absolue à son père et son fort désir d'autonomie elle n'arrive pas à choisir une des deux options possibles : rejetter l'"offre" de Dorsday, et ainsi abandonner son père à son destin ou accepter la proposition de Dorsday qui équivaudrait à une autoprostitution et donc à ne plus disposer de son propre corps

Lieutenant Gustl by Arthur Schnitzler( Book )

214 editions published between 1901 and 2019 in 7 languages and held by 1,019 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With Peter Altenberg and Hugo von Hofmansthal, Arthur Schnitzler was a major modernist of the period of Viennese intellectual activity from 1890 to 1930. Born in 1862 and trained as a physician, Schnitzler increasingly came to be influenced by the psychoanalysis centered around Sigmund Freud. Ultimately he gave up medicine to devote himself to writing brilliant psychological portraits of the Viennese bourgeois and upper classes of the fin de siecle." "Schnitzler's most famous works include his dramas. Anatol (1893), Liebelei (1896), and The Green Cockatoo (1899), and the fictions The Lonely Way (1904), The Road Into the Open (1908), Casanova's Homecoming (1918), and Dream Story (1926). Lieutenant Gustl, published in 1901, is among Schnitzler's major short works, and is important as one of the first examples in this century of "stream of consciousness" narration. James Joyce has admitted to have been influenced by this book in writing Ulysses." "A tour de force of modernist point-of-view, Lieutenant Gustl is highly critical of Austria's militarism, and resulted in anti-Semitic attacks to Schnitzler when it was first published."--Jacket

Therese : Chronik eines Frauenlebens by Arthur Schnitzler( Book )

115 editions published between 1928 and 2017 in 6 languages and held by 635 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arthur Schnitzlers zweiter und letzter Roman ist lange unterschätzt worden. Er läßt eine innere Entwicklung der Heldin hinter dem an der Oberfläche willkürlichen Geschehen aufleichten, das mit dem Schicksal Österreichs in einer gewissen metaphoirschen Beziehung steht. Schnitzler läßt seine Heldin durch ein blühendes und doch schon erkranktes Land wandern, liefert sie einer Anzahl von unzulänglichen Beziehungen aus und stellt dabei die Frage nach dem Wie und Warum des Verfalls der Donaumonarchie. So steht der ganze Roman, zehn Jahre nach dem Ende des Ersten Weltkriegs erschienen, im Zeichen des bevorstehenden Endes: Wer war verantwortlich für den Untergang Österreichs, der hier anhand eines Einzelschicksals beschrieben wird? Wie steht es überhaupt um die Verantwortung der Menschen füreinander?

Beatrice Heinold, widow of well-known actor Ferdinand, is summering at one of the small lake villages in the Salzkammergut with her son Hugo. This is a genteel crowd of Viennese bourgeoisie, sophisticated, urbane and liberated. However, Beatrice realizes that her young son, Hugo, is either having an affair with, of close to doing so with Baroness Fortunata Schon, of whom Beatrice does not at all approve. She tries to confront the Baroness pleading for her son to be left in his innocence and is given the promise, but realizes immediately that the promise will not be kept. Things complexify, however, when Beatrice inexplicably starts a passionate love affair with Hugo{u2019}s best friend, and after learning from him that her late husband, whom she had idolized as the perfect lover and husband, had many affairs during their married life. This weighs deeply on her, and she even contemplates further affairs with others in the community in some sort of revenge on her dead husband. --Bob Corbett at
