Sueños olvidados y otros relatos (Clasicos Modernos)

“El conjunto de estos relatos, traducidos con mimo y seleccionados con juicio y gusto certero por Genoveva Dieterich, traza de manera eficaz una guía literaria y un estupendo retrato del propio Zweig, de l. a. sutileza, complejidad y refinamiento de su mundo intelectual”

Miguel Sánchez-Ostiz, ABC

Los relatos que conforman esta antología son una muestra de las mejores cualidades narrativas de Stefan Zweig. l. a. pretensión de Zweig, producto emblemático de l. a. cultura de Viena de principios de siglo y muy influido por las teorías psicoanalíticas, es iluminar «los sótanos, las cavidades de las raíces y las cloacas del corazón» donde «pululan brillando fosforescentes las verdaderas y peligrosas fieras de los angeles pasión».
El erotismo juvenil, las relaciones de pareja, el nuevo papel emergente de l. a. mujer son algunos de los ejes de estos relatos. En consonancia con sus palabras de que «ningún sufrimiento es tan sagrado como el que no se expresa por pudor», Stefan Zweig da en Confusión de los sentimientos un tratamiento realmente avanzado a un tema maldito como el de los angeles homosexualidad; no sólo expone con awesome sinceridad y humanidad los angeles relación homoerótica entre un profesor y su alumno, sino que también esboza en el personaje de l. a. mujer de este profesor un retrato moderno de mujer independiente e inteligente.
Este volumen recoge también otra vertiente de Zweig, l. a. que se deriva de los angeles Primera Guerra Mundial y sus consecuencias, que marcaron profundamente al autor e hicieron que se abriera a nuevos temas y nuevos personajes; gentes sencillas y vapuleadas por los angeles guerra y l. a. inflación de los años veinte, como el entrañable personaje imperative de Mendel, el de los libros, o el no menos amable coleccionista imaginario y quijotesco de La colección invisible.

Stefan Zweig nació en Viena en 1881. Hijo de un acomodado business, estudió filosofía y lenguas germánicas y románicas en Berlín y Viena.
Durante los angeles Primera Guerra Mundial tuvo que exiliarse a Zúrich por sus rules pacifistas. Desde 1919 a 1935 vivió en Salzburgo, donde creó una extensa obra, que incluye narraciones, poesía, ensayos, biografías y obras de teatro, y que le convirtió en uno de los autores de lengua alemana más famosos de su tiempo.
En 1935, Zweig se trasladó a Inglaterra donde se estableció como exiliado. Posteriormente, al estallar los angeles Segunda Guerra Mundial buscó refugio en América. Después de una breve estancia en Nueva York, durante l. a. que colaboró en los diferentes intentos de organización y de asistencia de los exiliados europeos, se estableció en Brasil, donde desesperado ante el giro que tomaba l. a. guerra y convencido de l. a. definitiva destrucción del ámbito cultural europeo, se surrenderó los angeles vida, en 1942, en compañía de su segunda mujer.
