Night Games and Other Stories and Novellas

Night Games and Other Stories and Novellas

By Arthur Schnitzler
Translated by Margret Schaefer

These artful new translations of nine of Schnitzler's most important stories and novellas reinforce the Viennese author's remarkable achievement as literary modernist, depth psychologist, and prose stylist. The collection includes his powerful early works such as "The Dead are Silent" and "Geronimo and His Brother" as well as late masterpieces such as "Night Games" and "Dream Story," upon which Stanley Kubrick based his film Eyes Wide Shut. In all these stories, Schnitzler uses a point of view, interior monologue, and stream of consciousness in a radically modern way reminiscent of Joyce and Proust, only earlier. Margret Schaefer's translation has won acclaim in the New Yorker and among critics generally.
