Dream Story

  1. Arthur Schnitzler was an Austrian author and dramatist.The son of a prominent Hungarian Jewish laryngologist Johann Schnitzler and Luise Markbreiter a daughter of the Viennese doctor Philipp Markbreiter , was born in Vienna in the Austro Hungarian Empire, and began studying medicine at the local university in 1879 He received his doctorate of medicine in 1885 and worked at the Vienna s General Hospital, but ultimately abandoned medicine in favour of writing.His works were often controversial, both for their frank description of sexuality Sigmund Freud, in a letter to Schnitzler, confessed I have gained the impression that you have learned through intuition though actually as a result of sensitive introspection everything that I have had to unearth by laborious work on other persons 1 and for their strong stand against anti Semitism, represented by works such as his play Professor Bernhardi and the novel Der Weg ins Freie However, though Schnitzler was himself Jewish, Professor Bernhardi and Fr ulein Else are among the few clearly identified Jewish protagonists in his work.Schnitzler was branded as a pornographer after the release of his play Reigen, in which ten pairs of characters are shown before and after the sexual act, leading and ending with a prostitute The furore after this play was couched in the strongest anti semitic terms 2 his works would later be cited as Jewish filth by Adolf Hitler Reigen was made into a French language film in 1950 by the German born director Max Oph ls as La Ronde The film achieved considerable success in the English speaking world, with the result that Schnitzler s play is better known there under Oph ls French title.In the novella, Fr ulein Else 1924 , Schnitzler may be rebutting a contentious critique of the Jewish character by Otto Weininger 1903 by positioning the sexuality of the young female Jewish protagonist 3 The story, a first person stream of consciousness narrative by a young aristocratic woman, reveals a moral dilemma that ends in tragedy.In response to an interviewer who asked Schnitzler what he thought about the critical view that his works all seemed to treat the same subjects, he replied, I write of love and death What other subjects are there Despite his seriousness of purpose, Schnitzler frequently approaches the bedroom farce in his plays and had an affair with one of his actresses, Adele Sandrock Professor Bernhardi, a play about a Jewish doctor who turns away a Catholic priest in order to spare a patient the realization that she is on the point of death, is his only major dramatic work without a sexual theme.A member of the avant garde group Young Vienna Jung Wien , Schnitzler toyed with formal as well as social conventions With his 1900 short story Lieutenant Gustl, he was the first to write German fiction in stream of consciousness narration The story is an unflattering portrait of its protagonist and of the army s obsessive code of formal honour It caused Schnitzler to be stripped of his commission as a reserve officer in the medical corps something that should be seen against the rising tide of anti semitism of the time.He specialized in shorter works like novellas and one act plays And in his short stories like The Green Tie Die gr ne Krawatte he showed himself to be one of the early masters of microfiction However he also wrote two full length novels Der Weg ins Freie about a talented but not very motivated young composer, a brilliant description of a segment of pre World War I Viennese society and the artistically less satisfactory Therese.In addition to his plays and fiction, Schnitzler meticulously kept a diary from the age of 17 until two days before his death, of a brain hemorrhage in Vienna The manuscript, which runs to almost 8,000 pages, is most notable for Schnitzler s cas

  1. Am I sure Only as sure as I am that the reality of one night, let alone that of a whole lifetime, can ever be the whole truth The Bride 1918 by KlimtIt all begins with a confession of sorts as his wife Albertine tells him of a fantasy she had involving a man that she saw on their vacation Fridolin also confesses that he had desired a young woman on the beach It seems fairly harmless after all When we marry, we don t go numb from the waist down and the neck up We continue to notice attractive peo [...]

  2. A game of gallantry, seduction, resistance and fulfilment with a whiff of freedom, danger, and adventure That s the intention, anyway.Many editions have one of Klimt s golden paintings on the cover a mystical, sexual enticement that seems to fit the dreamy, steamy story At first But recreate those pictures with real people, as above, and they become disturbing in a way that is far appropriate to the full dark arc of the story.This novella takes place over barely 48 hours It opens with an idylli [...]

  3. What a read Before sticking my nose into this I had no idea how faithful Eyes Wide Shut is to this novella, almost scene for scene, but as usual the book outdoes the movie though unfortunately I could not rid my mind of the movie s images as I was reading I actually like Tom Cruise but I don t want him and his brilliant white choppers in my head when I m reading Begone shorty There s something very reminiscent of Chekhov in Schnitzler s writing a kind of styleless style wedded to superb storytel [...]

  4. Of course, one remembers some dreams, but there must be others one completely forgets, of which nothing remains but a mysterious mood, a curious numbness Atmospheric and haunting Schnitzler s novella is a perfect Dream or dream like Story He doesn t create the kind of dream world that is engineered by hanging two moons from the ceiling His world only consists of realistic things and events and yet it is shadowed by something intangible and unsettling He simply colors the world his characters inh [...]

  5. Prinzipiell hat Arthur Schnitzler hier eine sehr gute Geschichte begonnen, diese Ehe voller Nadelstiche, kleiner Kr nkungen und gegenseitiger Entfremdung Leider steht in diesem Fall der literarische Typ der Novelle wieder mal gegen eine wirklich ausgezeichnete Aufarbeitung des angerissenen Themas Ich finde einfach eine bzw diese Beziehung ist viel zu vielschichtig und komplex, um derart kurz abgehandelt zu werden Das merkt man auch beim Ende, als der Ehemann alles beichtet und dann ist alles wie [...]

  6. Freud meets Chekhov in decadent Vienna Dreams, repression, love, lust, marriage, all that good stuff Kubrick made a movie out of it If this doesn t grab your attention, I m not sure if I know you any.

  7. Fridolin and Albertine are married with a child One evening Albertine confesses to Fridolin that she had sexual phantasies involving a man she had seen during their vacation That sets off Fridolin on an exploration into his life, his wishes and desires.In 1926, when this was originally published, it was probably a pretty scandalous book My thoughts were along the lines of oh, another guy exploring his midlife crisis Which is probably really shallow of me Eroticism is only one aspect of this nov [...]

  8. O ultimo filme de Stanley Kubrick, De Olhos Bem Fechados , foi inspirado neste livro Lembro me vagamente do enredo e, fatalmente, foi o rosto de Tom Cruise e Nicole Kidman que visualizei nos protagonistas o que diminuiu o factor surpresa e a tarefa de criar, na minha imagina o, as imagens das personagens e de algumas cenas Mesmo assim, foi uma leitura interessante e absorvente Fridolin casado com Albertine Ao regressarem de uma festa, confessam um ao outro as suas fantasias e aventuras sexuais, [...]

  10. Sogno e realt si confondono in questo enigmatico racconto, tutto incentrato sui misteri dell eros e sul tradimento relegato a puro desiderio o inutilmente perseguito Il tema della maschera, che ricorre insistente nel corso della narrazione, simboleggia la complessit del mondo interiore e l ambiguit dell immagine che l individuo offre di s , specie nel rapporto di coppia in seguito a un ballo in maschera che prendono consistenza le fantasie sessuali e i desideri inappagati di Albertine e Fridolin [...]

  11. Made a sound like pshaw when I finished it a few seconds ago I m a rare fan of Kubrick s Eyes Wide Shut and so I looked forward to this, but found it too close to the film and yet nowhere near as vivid A cool thing in the movie is the color scheme red, blue, and purple Blue inflected scenes represent fidelity, domesticity Red scenes represent temptation, fantasy Purple scenes are a mix, a conflict of the fidelity and fantasy Once you pick up on this, you see that every scene is thematically code [...]

  12. For some reason my first thought after reading this was that Jeremy Irons would have been a far better choice to play the Fridolin character rather than Tom Cruise in the movie Eyes Wide Shut , which is based on this short story It is a thought provoking exploration of fantasy and jealousy within a marriage set against the backdrop of upper class Vienna and its seedy underbelly lurking beneath.

  13. In 1933, Joseph Goebbels orchestrated a Fahrenheit 451 avant la lettre, by putting on fire, in some major cities of Germany, all those books that Hitler had identified as Jewish filth , for they were written by nonentities such as Einstein, Marx, Kafka, Freud, Stefan Zweig and Arthur Schnitzler The last one is the least known among them and it is a pity, because his work was fresh and daring both in ideas and style for his time the beginning of the 20th century Indeed, on one hand he did not hes [...]

C quella sensazione che a volte ci pervade, quando abbiamo finito di leggere un libro o siamo appena usciti da una sala cinematografica, e che ci fa capire che la storia non finita l , ma che ci accompagner per sempre Doppio Sogno uno di quei rari casi in cui si ha la certezza che qualcosa in noi cambiato e che d ora in avanti guarderemo le persone in maniera differente Il simbolo del libro La maschera Il tema della storia Il doppio che in ciascuno di noi Il desiderio del protagonista Dare liber [...]

  15. Obra maestra de sobriedad y suspenso, psicolog a, un retrato impecable de las relaciones humanas, las de pareja en especial, y sus muchas sutilezas, enredos, complicaciones, y los alcances del inconsciente.Bravo.

  16. I have registered with GoodReads simply so that I can comment that this is one of the worst books I have ever read.It is middle brow soft porn of the most banal sort I should perhaps say that I only read it because it is a set text on a university course I am doing I realise that I am reading it in translation, but the language is so remarkably cliche ridden and trite We are supposed to be reading about deep, disturbing experiences and for me it all comes over as if the central character is on a [...]

  17. Originally published in 1926, Dream Story originally Traumnovelle was the basis for Stanley Kubrick s final film, 1999 s Eyes Wide Shut The premise is simple enough Following a masquerade ball, Albertina confides in her husband, Fridolin, the lust she felt for Danish sailor she encountered on a previous vacation Still digesting this bubble bursting confession, he is called away because one of his patients, a Councilor, has suffered a heart attack By the time Fridolin arrives, the Councilor has d [...]

  18. Traumnovelle is a haunting book and I find its original version a tad complicated in its choice of words than English translation.It is beautifully ambiguous, hazy and concerns sexual matters, jealousy do not overshare with your partner , sensibility and a lot Well, it may be read like one of your dirtyscary dreams Anyone who calls it soft porn must be a hell of a prude, sorry Either that or he she is too easily impressed with such words as breasts or naked Yes, women in this book have some se [...]

  20. La cualidad que m s sobresale no es la forma en la que Schnitzler pone sobre el mostrador la parte inquietante de las relaciones, sino la forma en la que nos confunde, esa sutileza con la que nos introduce en un sue o consciente en el que no sabemos cu nto hay de sue o y cu nto de realidad Se puede leer el libro dos veces y seguir viendo c mo todo se confunde Rese a completa libros prohibidos arth

  21. Vor gut 15 Jahren habe ich wenige Wochen nach Beginn des B rgerkrieges in einem kleinen Dorf in Nepal den Film Eyes Wide Shut gesehen, ein Kompromiss zwischen meinen nepalesischen Gef hrten, die Bollywood Filme sehen wollten oder zumindest nackte Haut sehen wollten und mir, der ich Bollywood Filme oder Hollywood Action nicht mehr sehen konnte und etwas halbwegs intelligentes suchte Der Film zeichnete sich durch bestenfalls mittelm ige schauspielerische Leistung aber gute Regie und eine interessa [...]

  22. I thought I had the answers to the questions I ask myself every time I see Eye Wide Shut which this new dream is adaptation.Kubrick has drawn the close of the story, namely the duality of fantasies couple Fridolin and Albertine The paper version is detailed, freudi ne and of course less erotic date on which since 1926 But the themes are there fantasies, prostitution, desire The movie has added a mysterious side accentuating the idea of ritual akin to immediately dive into a sectarian world th [...]
