Lo si divora. L'ho trovato molto simile, come impianto a: Le braci di Sandor Marai. Anche lì un monologo travolgente. Scrittore da approfondire e che entra di diritto tra i miei preferiti. ( )

My first time reading Stefan Zweig. Read for February BOTM, Reading 1001. I enjoyed this short work exploring what it means to run Amok. I've heard of this term in discussions by mental health colleges so it was interesting to read this story. A man is unable to sleep and goes on deck, he finds himself standing by a stranger, a doctor, who confesses in the night why he is hiding in the dark from others on the boat. Its a bit of a mystery but mostly it is a psychological exploration of choices, consequences, responsibility and duty. ( )

A collection of 5 novellas/short stories with a common theme: the extremes of human passions that come out of nothing plunge a man into ruin. Frequently this passion is a forbidden one like lust or gambling, and the protagonists usually had it coming for a very long time. Not much is actually happening in these stories, but Zweig is a master of dissecting his characters in their descent into rawest emotions. ( )

Ottimo racconto. Verso il finale un po' troppo romantico. Non condivido le scelte di Zweig, ma le rispetto, accade sempre. ( )

Nel marzo dell'anno 1912, mentre nel porto di Napoli erano in corso operazioni di scarico da un grosso transatlantico, si verificò uno strano incidente, di cui i giornali riferirono in modo ampio, ma assai fantasioso.
