The Emperor's Tomb

The Emperor's Tomb

By Joseph Roth
Translated by Joan Hoare

One of Joseph Roth's greatest achievements, The Emperor's Tomb is a nostalgic, haunting elegy for the end of youth and the last days of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. A continuation of the saga of the von Trotta family from The Radetzky March, it is both a powerful and moving look at a decaying society and its journey through the War and its devastating aftermath and the story of the erosion of one man's desperate faith in the virtues of a simple life.

Joseph Roth was born in 1894, in a small Galician town on the eastern borders if the Hapsburg Empire. After serving in the Austro-Hungarian army from 1916 to 1918, he worked as a journalist in Vienna and in Berlin. He died in Paris in 1939, leaving behind him thirteen novels as well as many stories and essays.
