Ova godina može se označiti godinom ponovnog otkrivaja čitalačkom oku dela Štefana Cvajga, austrijskog pisca na prelazu vekova koji je, svojevremeno, bio najčitaniji i najprevođeniji evropski pisac, poznat po novelama, ali i po biografijama znamenitih ljudi kao što su Marija Stjuart, Marija Antoaneta, Frojd, Balzak, Helderlin, Niče, Stendal, Kazanova.

Ove godine je u fokusu javnosti delo Štefana Cvajga zbog pojavljivanja filma Grand Budapest Hotel američkog reditelja Vesa Andersona. Istovremeno kad i film, pojavila su se dve knjige praćene intervjuima autora, akademskim istraživanjima, otkivanjima arhiva koja čuvaju Cvajgove predmete i rukopise. Objavljena je biografija The Impossible Exile čiji je autor Džordž Pročnik. Potom se pojavila knjiga Stefan Zweig and World Literature (21st Century Perspectives) koja predstavlja zbirku eseja na temu Cvajgovog stvaralaštva u kontekstu našeg doba.

THE IMPOSSIBLE EXILE

By the 1930s, Stefan Zweig had become the most widely translated living author in the world. His novels, short stories, and biographies were so compelling that they became instant best sellers. Zweig was also an intellectual and a lover of all the arts, high and low. Yet after Hitler’s rise to power, this celebrated writer who had dedicated so much energy to promoting international humanism plummeted, in a matter of a few years, into an increasingly isolated exile—from London to Bath to New York City, then Ossining, Rio, and finally Petrópolis—where, in 1942, in a cramped bungalow, he killed himself.

I had never heard of Zweig until six or seven years ago, as all the books began to come back into print, and I more or less by chance bought a copy of „Beware of Pity“. I immediately loved this book, his one, big, great novel and suddenly there were dozens more in front of me waiting to read. – Wes Anderson
