Rhapsody : a dream novel by Arthur Schnitzler( Book )

230 editions published between 1926 and 2017 in 8 languages and held by 1,510 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
La ronde by Arthur Schnitzler( Book )

176 editions published between 1909 and 2016 in 12 languages and held by 1,363 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
Fräulein Else; a novel by Arthur Schnitzler( Book )

226 editions published between 1900 and 2017 in 11 languages and held by 1,331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arthur Schnitzlers berühmter Monolog über das junge Fräulein Else. Vor der grandiosen Kulisse des Monte Cimino spielt das Drama um Else, die durch ein Telegramm ihrer Mama jäh aus ihrer großbürgerlichen Welt katapultiert wir, eh sie selber noch ihren Platz darin gefunden hat. Arthur Schnitzler hat mit dem Leutnant Gustl den Inneren Monolog in die deutschsprachige Literatur gebracht. In Fräulein Else führt er dies Prinzip weiter. Wir erleben die letzten Stunden der neunzehnjährigen Else durch ihre eigenen Augen. Es zeigt die übersteigerte Schamhaftigkeit eines jungen Mädchens an der Schwelle zum Frausein. Tief zerrissen zwischen den Erwartungen, die ein Aufwachsen im großbürgerlichen Millieu Wiens in ihr erzeugt hat und der bitter-profanen Realität, die ihr Mündelgelder veruntreuender Vater ihr beschert, weiß Else zuletzt keinen Ausweg. Die Lesung stammt von Vanida Karun, die mit ihrer ungewöhnlichen Stimme Fräulein Else ganz neue Nuancen abgewinnt. Die Hamburger Theater, und Fernsehschauspielerin hat schon diverse Hörbücher eingelesen, zuletzt "Lust auf Lust" von Renske de Greef

"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

The road into the open by Arthur Schnitzler( Book )

18 editions published between 1913 and 2016 in English and held by 758 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On the outset, 'The Road to The Open' is about a talented young composer suffering from a lack of inspiration. It is, however, a brilliant description of a slice of pre-World War I Viennese society, especially its intelligentsia. The novel dexterously showcases 'fin-de-siècle Austria' - the veritable Austria of the salons, cafes and musical concert

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
