the world of yesterday review

 In Uncategorized

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. Extraordinary Coincidences: "The World of Yesterday" by Stefan Zweig (Original Review from the German and English editions, 2002-06-05) "The World of Yesterday" has its flaws - some of the scenes that Zweig claims to have witnessed, particularly around the outbreak and conclusion of the Great War seem such extraordinary coincidences as to be barely credible.

It was fascinating how many well-known people he knew during his life up to 1942, just two examples are, Stefan Zweig was one of the world's most famous writers during the 1920s and 1930s, especially in the U.S., South America, and Europe.
