First things first, sorry if I confused you with my August in Books post, that was from last year, and I was only trying to edit some posts that I imported from Vox, but I think it showed up in readers.
Is there any way to do this without having them pop up in feeds etc? Anyway, on to the review. There is something very intense and satisfying about reading a novella. Schachnovelle tells the story of the chess game between Czentovic, a slow and almost robot-like champion, and Dr.
B, who claims not to have played since school, but who is nonetheless able to keep the chess champion on his toes.
Intrigued, the I-narrator asks Dr. B to tell him how he came to be such a formidable chess player without having played in years. B tells him about being imprisoned by the Gestapo, about spending months in a room without anything to occupy him, in other words about the torture of sensory deprivation.
By chance he finds a chess manual and reads it over schachnpvelle over again, at some point starting to play the game against himself in his mind. He becomes obsessed with chess, and suffers from chess fever, as a doctor calls it, and is warned not to play ever again. But then on the ship, he plays one last time, against the champion Czentovic, to test himself. Only the narrator and the reader are aware of the interpretayion of this game. What Zweig depicts in this novella is not the mass-murder the Nazis committed, but the psychological torture that the individual suffers.
The isolation and sensory deprivation that Dr. B is put through is at the heart of the story, and Zweig manages to make this story within a story darkly chilling and very intense. He easily conveys the horror of the psychological terror Dr. B suffers, and the relief he experiences when he interpretafion finds something to read, even if it is only a chess manual. Would we lose schacchnovelle minds more quickly?
The absence of stimuli tends to make me very nervous, and I know that wherever I am, I always look for words and text. The horror of what was done to Dr. B is perhaps that it might appear like nothing was done to him, that he was lucky compared to those who suffered physical torture. But Schachnovelle attests that Dr.
The chess game between him and Czentovic at the end is a nerve-wreaking show-down. Zweig makes opponents of two very different types, one quick, nervous and creative and the other achingly slow and lethargic.
Stefan Zweig was a brilliant Austrian writer who went into exile in Brazil when the Nazis took power. He committed suicide together with his wife in He has written several great novellas, Amok is especially satisfying. Have you reviewed this book? I love chess, and this story looks quite powerful. Being deprived of sensory stimuli must make things quite tough for a person. Chess always adds mystery and metaphor and knowledge to stories.
Stefan Zweig Schachnovelle Eine Analyse Und Interpretation by Kolb Sonja
That sounds interesting about memories which can sustain us! Can we really live off memories. On chess — I feel that the basic game is not very difficult. We need to just know how to move the pieces and how to trap the king of the opponent. The strategies for doing this are complex though.
If you are interested, you can try reading that. It is quite fascinating. Wow, sounds like a truly fascinating book that examines an important topic.
I think you are right that sensory deprivation might be much worse these days. I guess being wothout internet, like Vishy pointed out, is already too much of a deprivation for us today. I enjoy having time to myself, but not without stimuli!
What a dark read and the thought of sensory deprivation is frightening, especially when you put it in the context of being without words…. What a sad ending for the author and his wife… that alone should be written up in a book. Wow, now this stirs up memories as I had to read this back in school. I can hardly remember everything, but your lovely review has brought it back to me. I think I might have to dig up this little treasure and read it again.
I never read this one in school! I have heard a lot about this book and about the brilliance of its theme.
You just reinforced all of that. The damage is all in his psyche.

And that is very scary. Phew, I must read this. As WWII stuff goes, this is really not the darkest read.
