Beware of pity by Stefan Zweig( Book )

17 editions published between 1939 and 2006 in English and German and held by 504 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beware Of Pity is a powerful novel which explores the complex hidden recesses of emotion. In 1913, a young second lieutenant discovers the terrible dangers of pity and eventually flees from them into the battlefield. His involvement begins with a faux pas: he had no idea the girl was lame when he asked her to dance. Paying her an occasional afternoon call seemed to give him a new sense of purpose and he did not notice how imperceptibly bound up with tenderness his concern might be. The girl's face brightened, her father doted, the young man's self-esteem rose. But he was gradually to learn that pity, like morphia, is only a first solace to the invalid and unless one knows the exact dosage, and when to stop, it can become a virulent poison. Beware of Pity is Stefan Zweig's only novel and is a devastatingly sober realisation of the torment of the betrayal of both honour and love, set against the background of the disintegration of the Austro-Hungarian Empire

Dialogue with death : the journal of a prisoner of the fascists in the Spanish Civil War by Arthur Koestler( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1937, while working for the London News Chronicle as a correspondent with the loyalist forces in the Spanish Civil War, I was captured by General Franco's troops and held for several months in solitary confinement, witnessing the executions of my fellow-prisoners and awaiting my own. [This book] is an account of that experience written immediately after my release, in July-August, 1937 ... My principal interest in writing [this book] was an introspective one : the psychological impact of the condemned cell. From this view point, the political background was irrelevant, and the narrative, as far as it went, was the truthful account of an intimate experience"--Page xiii-xiv
