This republication of a 1927 novella provided me a first opportunity to experience the fictional work of this beloved Austrian man of letters This pacificist and humanist escaped from the early rise of Fascism for a life of exile in England New York and finally Brazil where he and his wife committed suicide in 1942 That fate shouldn’t affect how you react to his work but for me it did I sought something that reflected the struggle to find meaning of human existence in the face of modern evils but I found instead a cool parable about morality and unintended conseuences of kindness I did appreciate the elegance and intellectual cleverness of the way he nested a story within a story Around the dining table of a small hotel in the French Riviera at the turn of the 20th century the guests witness a respectable married woman with children being charmed by a presumed stranger and suddenly running off with him The discussion among the guests evokes much moral outrage but a lone artistocratic widow extols the virtues of a human capacity to make such a leap for passion at the expense of civilized responsibilies and rational will She is drawn to relate a comparable story when she was younger and acted out of character to help a man gambling beyond his means at the roulette table in Monte Carlo It was her fascination with the expressiveness of her hands that moved her to act on his behalf An amazing riff about her vision of the whole society of gamblers from the perspective of their hands was the best part of this tale for meBecause she is moved by a sense of suicidal desperation in this man she gets involved deeply and is subject to some surprising revelations about his unforeseen character and about her own actions The multiple displacements for the reader by having actions of one fictional story of reflections on one woman’s obscured story kaleidoscoped into another character’s reflection on her past give the novella some worthy mental twists I could respect the artistry of Zweig but I wasn’t able to work up much emotional engagement or garner meaningful take home lessons on the human condition Because now a month after reading this little impact looms in my mind I notched my initial 4 star reaction down to 3 stars From this point I am eager to pursue his Chess Story as perhaps a substantial chance to savor his talentsThis book was provided by the publisher for review by the Netgalley program

It's my first encounter with Steven Zweig and after reading a few pages a uery I posed to myself in contemplation that why I waited so long to read this author such was the impact of Zweig The author had precision of a sculptor to craft sentences with just enough verbosity but with deep observations to put forth the deep secrets of human beings which are buried well below the layers of bygone times I guess there are other people like me who easily gets bored from things if they stick for long P and always looks for something to read with which the bond could be disassembled just before it starts becoming a languor to you then this is for you it's roughly 90 odd pages with a short size however it's narrative a burst of deep emotions having tales within in a tale The prose is intoxicating wherein you feel that although it begins on a very innocuous note but as you move on you realize that it goes into deep abyss of human emotions and by the time you end the book the human emotions are totally exposed to naked eye to reiterate imperfect human existence The experience of reading of Zweig is truly amazing for it's like a short sojourn wherein reader initially starts to feel sympathizing towards the protagonist as if one is spellbound by someone whom you meet first time in your life but the persona of that person is so charismatic that you feel like pull along by some hidden force as you move along with book you really start feeling the emotions of the protagonist as your own as if the protagonist is someone who has been brought up by the author from the deep reminiscences of your past and you know her well but somehow it got stacked down by the pile of memories The book revolves around morality of our society towards women for there are two intriguing issues in the book Could a woman have really done this with a perfect stranger or was the situation a ruse And should she be encountered again should she be treated with contempt as an outcast from society As our society has traditionally been patriarch and always maintained a different eye at times disdainful for women the uestion here is whether a woman who has done an act perhaps on her will could be accepted in the society or she should be devoid of any sort of respect I won't say we should sympathize with anyone since I feel that refutes the very meaning of a authentic existence and be declared an outcast to our ' civilized' society The married couples furiously maintain that she should be treated with utter contempt The narrator finds himself pushed into a position of defence This accusation rather annoyed me and when the German lady added her mite by remarking instructively that there were real women on the one hand and 'natural born tarts' on the other and in her opinion Madame Henriette must have been one of the latter I lost patience entirely and became aggressive myself Such a denial of the obvious fact that at certain times in her life a woman is delivered up to mysterious powers beyond her own will and judgment I said merely concealed fear of our own instincts of the demonic element in our nature and many people seemed to take pleasure in feeling themselves stronger purer and moral than those who are 'easily led astray Zweig has brilliantly conveyed the swings in expressions of a man his control is like that of a river which flows with a poise to have no impetus no hesitation until it mingles with expanse of aua Once like a little waves rippling galvanically spread out from his lips once again his hands were clasped the boyish face disappeared behind greedy expectation until the spasmodic tension exploded and fell apart in disappointment the face that had just looked boyish turned faded wan and old light disappeared from the burnt out eyes and all this within the space of a second as the ball came to rest on the wrong number And as soon you finish the book you are innocently forced to ponder that how magical it's that the author has been able to do so much in so few pages I won't say he was a minimalist as Beckett was but he surely had deep understanding of human emotions like a psychologist and mastery over choosing them so as to make a portrait of man which has just those details that are necessary to make it alive to have a consciousness of its own and not than that that so much could happen in one's life over the span of just 24 hours as it's also reinforced by the author himself And now you will understand why I suddenly brought myself to tell you about my own experience When you defended Madame Henriette and said so passionately that twenty four hours could determine a woman's whole life I felt that you meant me; I was grateful to you since for the first time I felt myself as it were confirmed in my existence

Vierundzwanzig Stunden aus dem Leben einer FrauSpoleta uma acesa discussão entre os hóspedes do hotel e leva a Senhora C uma aristocrata inglesa de sessenta e sete anos a recordar um episódio secreto da sua vida ue a tortura há mais de duas décadas Vinte e uatro. Zweig again displays his magic in his ability to grasp resolutely and devoutly the reader’s attention uickly And again he chooses public spaces where paradoxically the most private corners of a person’s soul can be encountered hotels trains ships and casinos Places of transit with an element of chancePeripatetic that he was these places offered him endless portrait galleries from where he could pick his types And incisive examiner that he was his surgical observations exposed the crevices of the human hearts not visible on the disclosed canvases And in those crevices he always detects the passions that forceful and elusive substance that exerts its will over any always ineffectual shieldSeductivelyOne also recognizes his amiable and profound impartiality in the way he could mold a story to show how very predictable the unpredictable isIt all can happen in a short and measured slice of a person’s life
