Read full description of the books:

Rédigé en 1941, alors que, émigré au Brésil, Stefan Zweig avait déjà décidé de mettre fin à ses jours, Le Monde d'hier est l'un des plus grands livres-témoignages de notre époque. Zweig y retrace l'évolution de l'Europe de 1895 à 1941, le destin d'une génération confrontés brutalement à l'Histoire et à toutes les "catastrophes imaginables".

Il évoque avec bonheur sa vie de bourgeois privilégié dans la Vienne d'avant 1914 et quelques grandes figures qui furent ses amis: Schnitzler, Rilke, Romain Rolland, Freud ou Valéry. Mais il donne aussi à voir la montée du nationalisme, le bouleversement des idées d'après 14-18 puis l'arrivée au pouvoir d'Hitler, l'horreur de l'antisémitisme d'État et, pour finir, le "suicide de l'Europe".

Avec le recul, la lucidité de son testament intellectuel frappe le lecteur d'aujourd'hui, de même que sa dénonciation des nationalismes et de son plaidoyer pour l'Europe.

Read information about the author

Ebook Le Monde d'hier read Online! 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. He produced novels, plays, biographies and journalist pieces. Among his most famous works are Beware of Pity, Letter from an Unknown Woman and Mary, Queen of Scotland and the Isles. He and his second wife committed suicide in 1942.

Zweig studied in Austria, France, and Germany before settling in Salzburg in 1913. In 1934, driven into exile by the Nazis, he emigrated to England and then, in 1940, to Brazil by way of New York. Finding only growing loneliness and disillusionment in their new surroundings, he and his second wife committed suicide.

Zweig's interest in psychology and the teachings of Sigmund Freud led to his most characteristic work, the subtle portrayal of character. Zweig's essays include studies of Honoré de Balzac, Charles Dickens, and Fyodor Dostoyevsky (Drei Meister, 1920; Three Masters) and of Friedrich Hlderlin, Heinrich von Kleist, and Friedrich Nietzsche (Der Kampf mit dem Dmon, 1925; Master Builders). He achieved popularity with Sternstunden der Menschheit (1928; The Tide of Fortune), five historical portraits in miniature. He wrote full-scale, intuitive rather than objective, biographies of the French statesman Joseph Fouché (1929), Mary Stuart (1935), and others. His stories include those in Verwirrung der Gefhle (1925; Conflicts). He also wrote a psychological novel, Ungeduld des Herzens (1938; Beware of Pity), and translated works of Charles Baudelaire, Paul Verlaine, and mile Verhaeren.

Most recently, his works provided inspiration for the 2014 film 'The Grand Budapest Hotel'.
