    A gorgeous collection of stories rendered with nostalgic melancholy yet compassionate awareness of the fragility of life and love in fin de siecle Vienna the golden age of confluence of centuries of European cultural eruditionThe psychological power and gossamer subtlety of Schnitzler’s vision is a product of introspective ualia and his experiments with associative interior evocations precedes the surrealistic coterie of writers by a tleast two generations ‘ Lieutenant Gustl ‘ is a sublime example of discursive interior monologue signified through heteroglossia an evanescently orchestrated descent into madness redeemed through a jejune moment The lieutenant’s imagined nemesis dies of a stroke and psychological order is restored This restorative uality which Schnitzler grants his protagonists stands him in sharp contrast to the complete and full psychological alienation administered by subseuent German writers most notably Kafka If this is so its because Schnitzler’s characters remain anchored in the context of social reality The pulse of Viennese spiritual life its recurrent memes and cultural idiosyncrasies inform the psychological introspection of even the most dream like effervescent personas as in the Wise Man’s Wife Schnitzler’s stories are invariably symphonic variations on a theme the depth and complexity of the human heart and soul Yet each beautifully evocative story renders this anew in a marvellously atmospheric séance of psychological and social awarenessPlus I am enriching my vocabulary with the following splendid word satisfaktionsunfahig I shall be using it indiscriminately going forward
