It's interesting. I have read many of Zweig's novels and short stories and rank him as one of my favorite authors. They were primarily written during and/or after WWII, right up until his suicide. This novel was published in 1936. It is the religious tale of Jews being mistreated in 1300s Rome, and certainly seemed significantly different in style than anything else I have read. The primary theme is the cultural imperative that the significant events, beliefs, and artifacts of the Jewish faith be carried forward in time. It is a moving tale about a people who are perpetually bewildered at the hatred they evoke in other cultures. Well written, yet has to be set apart as a cultural fable, rather than an intellectually stimulating piece of literary fiction. ( )
