Proceedings of the Stefan Zweig Symposium
Marion Sonnenfeld - Editor

Fifty years ago, Stefan Zweig, who committed suicide in 1942, was the most widely read and translated living writer in the world.

But in his day he was a household word, a teller of cautionary tales, instructive fables, and reports of strange lands. He lived in the series of little books found in thousands of homes, in the elementary readers and textbooks, even in the spate of imitation and spurious “P...(Read More)

He portrayed the m...(Read More)
