    1. I have been struggling to write this review. I have a draft that keeps growing, with more quotes, more of my analysis, more words -- but as I write more, I worry that I am getting further away from Stefan Zweig, further away from this beautiful, sad, angry, insightful, anguished text.So am I scrapping all those words, and starting over. Stefan Zweig (1881-1942) wrote The World of Yesterday in desperate times. The unconventional memoir is a cri de coeur from Zweig, who stood for everything Hitler [...]


    2. If you had to live inside one of the following pictures, which one would you choose?Choice A:Choice B:. I am going to assume that aside from either the excuse of insanity or no I really can't think of another excuse, we're all on board with Choice A, yes?Let's try this one more time. Just to make sure, okay? One more time. You have two choices:Choice A:Choice B: Honestly, I am not trying to trick you. Once again, unless you are crazy, we're good with Choice A, yes?All right then. I'm just making [...]


    3. I think his world had vanished long before he ever entered it. But I will say, he certainly sustained the illusion with a marvelous grace!-Mr. Mustafa, The Grand Budapest HotelA few weeks ago, I was fortunate enough to see the most recent Wes Anderson movie, The Grand Budapest Hotel. Though my lowly opinion of his work had whipped back and forth from brilliant emotional set pieces to stuffy kitsch, this most recent movie had thankfully one of amazement, of gratitude, and loss.The plot of the mov [...]


    4. Once more I wandered down to the town to have a last look at peace.Time is an invincible enigma. Every moment brings something new for us to keep our faith intact while every new day brutally shatters the long held belief about matters dear to one’s life. This paradoxical existence of seemingly benign hands of minutes, seconds and hours have made people witness the extent of human compassion as well as the chasm of inhuman atrocities; and when the smoke from glowing and extinguished embers of [...]


    5. Several reviews have been written recently by my GRFriends on this book. To mention just a few, we have already those wonderful ones by: Kris, Elena,Yann,GarimaThere is therefore very little I can add. I will just write down a few thoughts.I was struck that these memoirs contained a lot less about himself than I would have expected. And although he follows the chronology of his lifetime, he does not give many dates, nor does he refer to many external or even personal events. There is certainly m [...]


    6. This is a poignant portrait of a "world of yesterday", specifically the world of turn-of-the century Vienna, and of European culture prior to the First World War. Stefan Zweig was born in Vienna in 1881, and was thus a young man during the decade preceding the War. His family was well off, and he was brought up surrounded by culture of every kind. He is now a writer mostly forgotten [correction - becoming famous again on , at least among my friends], but one who was judged in the 1920s and 1930s [...]


    7. "What a man has taken into his bloodstream in childhood from the air of that time stays with him."I found it hard to write a review for this book. There was just so much I wanted to say. A very nostalgic autobiography was what we were presented with here. I appreciated reading an account on how differently things were before the war. In the security chapter I couldn't help but be reminded of the Margaret McMillan talk I attended this Spring and how she said this period before WW1 was a very comf [...]


    8. "I am now a writer who, as Grillparzer said, 'walks behind his corpse in his own lifetime.'" -Stefan ZweigAfter reading Zweig's Journey into the Past and Confusion, I now understand the plight of those characters in his novellas when I read these words in his memoir: "I am always most attracted to the character who is struck down by fate in my novellas…" I've admired Zweig's permeance of the novella art form, and his stories that linger with psychological palpability. He's made me take particu [...]


    9. Before I went to Vienna over Easter, I began reading Stefan Zweig’s memoir, The World of Yesterday. The book informed my trip and made me imagine the Vienna of 1910 before the world went over the edge, or at least before Europe did. This is very much a European memoir, and to my mind it ought to be required reading for all Europeans, in fact for everyone who considers themselves citizens of the world and who do not define themselves, as Zweig did not, by means of the narrow and excluding confi [...]


    10. هذه المذكرات هي خلاصة تجربة الأديب ستيفان زفايج والذي كان معنيًا بتدوين يومياته - مذكراته وكان يشجع أصدقائه على فعل المثل ليس بغية النشر بقدر الفائدة الشخصية منها عند القراءة أو ليقرأ أبنائهم ماجاء فيها على الأقل؛ إيمانًا منه بأن "كل حياة تتضمن تجارب نفسية واجتماعية جديرة ب [...]


    11. ter all, shadows themselves are born of lightda sombra es, al fin y al cabo, hija de la luz.- Stefan Zweig, The World of Yesterday/El Mundo de AyerThere are people that breathe nostalgia every day. They enjoy it, they suffer it. They stare at some object and a million memories come to mind. People, friends, lovers, happiness, regrets. They are usually looking back wishing for the past to become present. For that little part of the world they knew and that it felt much safer than the one they inh [...]


    12. I'd been having trouble settling into a string of novels, too impatient and restless and dissatisifed even with Tolstoy's Resurrection, zoning out, not looking forward to reading at all. Finally I said screw it and grabbed Zweig's memoir. By the time I'd made it through his preface it was like he'd administered a heaping dose of just what I need into my unsettled reading organ. I really did feel immediately healed, wanting nothing other than to settle down with Zweig's flowing sentences, his sel [...]


    13. نص رائع مذكرات الأديب النمسوي ستيفان زفايج وحنين لعالم الأمس, عالم الأمن والسلام الذي عاشه قبل الحرب العالمية الأولىالحياة العامرة بالكتب والشعر والمسرح والموسيقى والأصدقاء والمناقشات والسفر الكتاب ليس مجرد سيرة لحياة واحد من أشهر الكُتاب باللغة الألمانية, لكنه أيضا عرض [...]


    14. من أجمل كتب السيرة التي قرأتها، ينطلق من الخاص إلى العام، ومن العام إلى الكوني. تأملات مرهفة وحساسية نادرة في التناول والمعالجة. إضافة إلى جماله الفني قيمته الموضوعية لا يطالها الشك. اقرأوه


    15. Memoires often make the best travel books. I began this book in preparation for a short trip to Vienna, and quickly discovered that I had chosen well. Whatever your opinion of Zweig, The World of Yesterday is worth reading simply for the wealth of information it contains. Few history books paint so rich and full a picture of European culture during these transformative years—above all, in Paris, Berlin, and Zweig’s original home of Vienna—from the peaceful span preceding the First World Wa [...]


    16. We failed to see the writing on the wall in letters of fire. Like King Belshazzar before us, we dined on the delicious dishes of the arts and never looked apprehensively ahead.At one point during the first half of the 20th century, two Austrians would take residence in the high and remote corners of the Alps, almost exactly opposite one another. Both were at one time living in the Austrian capital of Vienna, though their experiences have been remarkably different - one wanted to be an artist, bu [...]


    17. This memoir is an exceptionally beautiful piece of art and literature! Stefan Zweig takes his readers on a journey of a lifetime (literally too). He succeeds to capture the Zeitgeist of more than half a century (and what a time indeed: the final years of the 19th century, the Great War and the years leading up to the Second World War) and makes it come alive. It was hard to put the book down before going to sleep at nights. I regretted Having to leave the book untouched for days because of work [...]


    18. I was so sorry having finished this book that my first instinct was to listen to it again, immediately. I have rarely read such a profoundly insightful book. Stefan Zweig is an Austrian author, Jewish. Born in 1881, at the height of his career he was one of the most popular writers in the world. I read and enjoyed some of his works in my teens. This, however, is a book I came across on my desperate search for audio books. I took just one brief look, and knew I had to have it.Stefan wrote this bo [...]


    19. I was somewhat disappointed in this one, and ended up skipping around a lot. This old (and anonymous) translation is stiff and quite unappealing, and while there are certainly many interesting stories, there is also a looseness in the prose and the book runs on a bit verbosely. There are some very interesting insights in the Hitler chapter, but Zweig soon escaped and lived in relative peace, and so was not the best witness (as he admits) for the events he subsequently lived through. He seems to [...]


    20. Such Abounding Beauty; Such Utter Sadness and Despair ThereafterThe World of Yesterday is the inimitably enriching and terrifically enthralling literary memoir of Stefan Zweig, an Austrian writer who was the world's most popular in the 1930s until he was forced by increasing Nazi pressure to flee continental Europe in 1934 and emigrate to England, the United States and ultimately Brazil. Zweig's gorgeous descriptions and memories sweep the reader into the Hapsburg empire of the early 20th Centur [...]


    21. Uno, Zweig, centomila!Io sono stordita da questa lettura.Leggo le parole di Zweig e ho voglia di leggere Henry James.Continuo a leggere Zweig e ho voglia di leggere Schnitzler.Leggo Zweig e ritrovo Maugham.Che meraviglia, Vienna, Berlino, Parigi e ancora Hertzl, Rilke, Valéry, Rodin!Un meraviglioso tuffo nella storia della letteratura di inizio secolo, nella storia dell'arte, nella storia e nella distruzione dell'umanità attraverso le due guerre mondiali; il sogno di un'Europa unita, il ricord [...]


    22. I have delayed writing this review in hopes that some inspiration will come (perhaps writing it for me) but no, I do have to perform the task from my own brain. This is perhaps one of the most melancholy memoirs I've read. While Zweig provides an often golden-hued picture of the Europe of his youth, the turn of the century Vienna of the final years of the Hapsburg Empire, he also tells us of his (sometimes impersonal) memories of life in Austria during and after The Great War, the years of terri [...]


    23. As an Autrian-Jewish writer who experienced both World Wars and encountered numerous influencial and interesting people in his life, I expected Zweig would have a facinating story to tell. I found his autobiographical work very boring however, and mostly filled with tediously written descriptions of Zweig's own importance and greatness. The following, almost satirical quote, illustrates my point I think:* Es ist ein unablässiges Ballast-über-Bord werfen, ein ständiges Verdichten und Klären d [...]


    24. On Stefan Zweig, "Die Welt von gestern": I just put the book down a few moments ago. Normally I like to marinate in a text a while before commenting. Zweig, unlike Thomas Mann, wrote in a spontaneous, fluid, conversational, druckreif style, and deserves an immediate unlabored impression. And the impression is one of overwhelming loss. In fact he lost his world twice. Reading this in 2014, exactly 100 years since his world fell apart the first time, makes me realize how fragile our culture is. Zw [...]


    25. On this link is the definitive review, I feel, by Kris and the reason why I read this book in the first place:/review/showThis is the most wonderful book imaginable. I really cannot say anything further.How can I possibly expound being a mere mortal on what this individual went through in his life and then finally to commit suicide with his wife in a joint pact. Such philosophical thoughts. It's mind blowing.An absolutely remarkable book. I actually confess to being humbled in reading it and I'm [...]


    26. Well I'm not really sure what I thought about this one. I found it very interesting reading about the period that Zweig was describing, and his life in Austria and other places in Europe from the late 19th century onwards. It was fascinating how many well-known people he knew during his life up to 1942, just two examples are Rainer Maria Rilke and Maxim Gorky. But, oh dear, I did find this long winded. I had to smile to myself when Zweig wrote that one of the reasons his novels were popular, was [...]



    27. There’s something a bit over-wrought in Zweig’s writing I find. I’m not sure quite how else to describe it but it doesn’t quite ring true. The opening chapter on schoolboy connoisseurs is absurd. The material about the period immediately after the First World War is sometimes the most interesting though the book itself tends to be sold on the basis of it being an evocative account of fin de siècle Habsburg Vienna. I confess I didn’t feel moved by his account of that pre-WWI period and [...]



    28. I read the first hundred pages or so which painted a vivid picture of life in the waning days of the Hapsburg empire, the patronage of arts, the stability and security felt by everyone, the Jewish community's dynamism, and schooling and university. The book continues from there but it leaves Austria and I felt a bit ambivalent to continue since the next events were the fulfillment of many Nazi party policies of aggression. The fact that Zweig and his wife both committed suicide during the war, e [...]
