The Round - Reigen : English German Dual-Language Edition

Description

Arthur Schnitzler wrote Reigen in 1897. It was published in Vienna in 1903, but it was banned by censors a year later. It was not performed publicly as a play until 1920, and its performance was met by moralistic attacks that quickly became anti-Semitic. Schnitzler was condemned as a "Jewish pornographer." But within a few decades, the play was recognized as a classic. Sixteen films have been based on this play, beginning with La Ronde by Max Ophuls (1950) and La Ronde by Roger Vadim (1964). This is the first dual-language edition of Reigen. It is ideal for people who are learning German and for people who want to read the play in the original but who do not know quite enough German to read it without the help of the facing English translation. Read the actual words of the greatest modern Austrian writer. "I have gained the impression that you have learned through intuition - although actually as a result of sensitive introspection - everything that I have had to unearth by laborious work on other persons." - Sigmund Freud, in a letter to Schnitzler
