The royal game & other stories by Stefan Zweig( Book )

6 editions published between 1991 and 2013 in French and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1938, Nazism forced Zweig into exile. Chess Story, sometimes known as The Royal Game, was the last thing he wrote before he and his wife committed suicide. This novella is a final effort to take the human measure of the inhuman. On a great ocean liner, the world champion of chess confronts a lawyer with a surprising talent for the game in a tense contest of wit and will. How the lawyer acquired his skill and at what terrible cost are the substance of a story, in which, at the same time, quietly but unmistakably, the death knell of the Enlightenment is sounded."--Jacket

3 editions published in 2000 in French and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A travers un choix de textes, l'édition permet de suivre les étapes principales de la création de Kafka. Une anthologie dans laquelle les auteurs ont pris le parti de respecter scrupuleusement le texte et la composition des recueils et éditions parus du vivant du romancier. Les auteurs qualifient l'édition des ##Oeuvres complètes## de Kafka (Gallimard, 1976-1988, 4 vol.) d'incontournable, mais lui reprochent de "démembrer" tous les ensembles de textes constitués et d'être d'une utilisation peu aisée.

But are political secrets all that W. is seeking in the underground labyrinth of Berlin? In fact, what W. really desires are his own lost memories, the self undone by surveillance: his "I."

Verwirrung der Gefühle : drei Novellen by Stefan Zweig( Book )

4 editions published between 1992 and 2015 in French and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A young man who is rapidly going to the dogs in Berlin is packed off by his father to a university in a sleepy provincial town. There a brilliant lecture awakens in him a wild passion for learning--as well as a peculiarly intense fascination with the graying professor who gave the talk. The student grows close to the professor, becoming a regular visitor to the apartment he shares with his much younger wife. He takes it upon himself to urge his teacher to finish the great work for scholarship that he has been laboring at for years and even offers to help him in any way he can. The professor welcomes the young man's attentions, at least on some days. On other, he rages without apparent reason or turns away from his disciple with cold scorn. The young man is baffled, wounded. He cannot understand. But his wife understands. She understands perfectly. And one way or another she will help him to understand too."--Page 4 of cover

Rhapsody : a dream novel by Arthur Schnitzler( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in French and held by 35 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
