  1. This is a book to be read in 2013, as a Centennial celebration of that year during which the arts lived in great excitement before they boiled over There is still time to celebrate the succession of events, episode and snippets that peppered that year of aesthetic fertility.Illies has traced the activities of the players month by month jumping from anecdote to anecdotes occurring at about the same time Reading this book therefore reads like a Merry Go Round in which colourful figures turn in fro [...]


  2. 1913 Thomas Mann s drama Fiorenza is a deb cle, to his eternal chagrin Kafka s marriage proposal to Felice is a deb cle, to his eternal relief Hugo von Hofmannsthal sees nothing but deb cle in Austrian high aristocracy, total cultural bankruptcy and Vienna at the mercy of the rabble and Rilke has toothache Die Br cke is full of tension, but holds until May, Matisse and Picasso admire each other s work and Hitler paints chocolate box water colours of famous tourist sights in Vienna and M nich Mar [...]



  3. Audiobook through Kindle Unlimited.An interesting look at the world before everything changed Some politicians, psychiatrists, artists, and writers are showcased in this book Snippets of their lives make up the month to month chapters like what is happening between Freud and Jung, Duchamp, Kafka s attempt at a relationship, and Stalin and Hitler passing each other in the park Chevy Chase should be credited with the monthly update that the Mona Lisa is still missing It seems like a personal view [...]

  5. 1913 is a history book unlike every other one I ever read As the title says it is about the year 1913 There is a chapter for each month but the history is not told as one would except it, relating political events and stating how they lead to other events, in this the Great War 1913 uses a different approach It is of a cultural history, but not in the ordinary sense Different episodes from the lives of important artists, authors, editors etc and sometimes also political characters are told The [...]


  6. Bit of a strange book it s a history of 1913 told month by month, but it s history told through the lives of various members of the mainly artistic groups centred in Germany and Austria I d never heard of some of the characters so I was forever googling and Illes certainly has some fascinating tales to tell I definitely want to read about some of the people he writes about.There s a lot of wry humour throughout, but also a sense of foreboding due to what is to come in 1914 We of course have the [...]


  7. Imagine a monthly magazine devoted to, not the vapid celebs of Hollywood, but the best known artists and writers of Europe plus a few from England, various intellectuals and scientists, and some hangers on Every month you d dive into the details, and emerge knowing everything that was worth knowing And you d be further elevated by the knowledge that it wasn t even gossip, because the author had access to their actual diaries and letters.So this is 1913 it s fluff of course, but entertaining fluf [...]


  8. Eine Flei arbeit Oder doch eine beeindruckende Gesamtschau eines Jahres, das von gro er Bedeutung f r die europ ische Geistesgeschichte ist Illies hat auf jeden Fall eine Menge an Material zusammengetragen, das er witzig, sarkastisch oder auch manchmal mit einem sardonischen L cheln pr sentiert.Was bekommen wir auf rund 300 Seiten angeboten Eine nach Kalendermonaten gegliederte Aufstellung der Reisen, Handlungen, Nervenzusammenbr che, Liebschaften, Trennungen und Produktionen der Gro en der Mode [...]

  10. From BBC Radio 4 Book of the Week Florian Illies s impressionistic portrait of a society that is about to change forever.


  11. 3.5 Quite a clever construct, using short narratives or biographical information the author pieces together the world using notable personages as a guide to the world in the year before the Great War was fought.So many interesting tidbits, including the Lutz, the skater jump, this was apparently the year that this was first performed by a man named Lutz of course A young Hitler recently rejected from art school, Stalin, Lenin, the theft of the Mona Lisa Getrude Stein, Picasso, who had to provide [...]


  12. Die Idee ist gut, die Zeit um 1913 interessiert mich sowieso sehr, der Autor ist nett aber trotzdem hat mich das Buch entt uscht Erstens, weil es nicht so originell ist, wie ich dachte Er hat halt akribisch alles rausgesucht, was in dem Jahr passierte, und es in kleinen Anekdoten hintereinander geschrieben, vieles als immer wiederkehrender Running Gag die verschwundene Mona Lisa, Alma Mahler und ihre Beziehungen, der junge Hitler, etc Das ist ganz sch n, und er hat auch manchmal witzige Zusammen [...]


  13. I started this book on the last day of 2013 it turned out to be a great way to end the year This book was originally published in German, so it s no great surprise that most of its figures are from Berlin, Vienna and Prague Some will be familiar to English readers Kafka, Mann, Picasso others like Oskar Kokoschka, the ugliest man in Vienna, less so.In one respect, this book is a merry survey of the birth of modernism in another it s all foreshadowing the horrors of 1914 are right around the corne [...]


  14. Man sollte Vorsicht walten lassen, wenn Feuilletonisten das Buch eines der ihren so ber den gr nen Klee loben Brilliant und was las man da nicht alles Das Buch verpackt Geschichte in berschaubare H ppchen, ist mit Flei recherchiert und geschrieben in nettem Plauderstil Zweifellos gut lesbar und anfangs kurzweilig, aber man erm det doch angesichts des nicht enden wollenden Stroms an oberfl chlichen Anekd tchen und Geschichtchen, die sich nicht wirklich zu einem tieferen Bild verbinden, weder inte [...]


  15. Der Autor hat zweifellos keine Zeit und M hen gescheut, diverse Biographien und Tageb cher zu studieren, um uns einen Einblick in das Geschehen des kulturellen und gesellschaftlichen Lebens im Jahre 1913 zu geben Die Geschehnisse sind zum gr ten Teil in Deutschland und sterreich angesiedelt Hierbei treffen wir immer wieder auf Kafka, Rilke, Brecht, Freud, Th Mann, Trakl, Benn, Musil, Picasso, Proust, Kaiser Wilhelm, Kaiser Franz Joseph und dessen Thronfolger Franz Ferdinand sowie auch auf Stalin [...]


  16. This is a portrait of The World in 1913, the world in this context being writers, artists and intellectual figures in Europe The book was written by a German guy so it is a bit centred on Vienna, Munich and Berlin than elsewhere, though I think that is where the action was back then anyway with some stuff also going on in Paris etc In some ways there is a certain comic nostalgia to this, as we follow all these people going about their work, their feuds, their love affairs and their neuroses in [...]


  17. 14.08.2014 Ich wollte nur die erste Seite lesen und jetzt bin ich auf Seite 41.27.08.2014 Sehr am santes Buch und eine unglaubliche Aufgabe f r den Autor Nicht so sehr die Informationen, Geschichterln usw die sich im Buch finden,sondern die Streichungen w ren interessant Ein Vielfaches musste Illies weglassen und das war sicher das Schwierigste beim Schreiben des Buches Die Frage was f llt weg furchtbar f r den Autor Der Ton ist am sant es wird nie langweilig im Gegenteil Das Buch macht Lust auf [...]


  18. This was fun I don t know if it adds up to anything much, but it is fun The weaving together of little details and anecdotes of the lives of artists and Stalin scattered across central Europe, month by month, adds up to something that feels almost novelistic itself Wry, semi sympathetic, semi condescending, and not very pretentious, I think it does manage to give something of a sense of the place, at least for this particular class of people Better than the other 1913, though not as good as Phil [...]



  19. Fantastic Like sitting in a coffee shop trading gossip with a rather catty but very in the know friend Meanwhile, the world is grinding forward to the first world war and all its horrors.



  20. Dies ist ein sch nes Buch, in mehrfacher Hinsicht Allein schon sein Einband ist Programm Er zeigt eine Aufnahme von Heinrich K hn, der schon zu Beginn des 20 Jahrhunderts mit Hilfe des Autochrom Verfahren kunstvolle Farbfotos erschaffte Ein Leseb ndchen erh ht den gediegenen Eindruck Im Innern ist jedem Kapitel in diesem Falle Monat ein Schwarzwei bild vorangestellt, das mit dem Text in direkter Beziehung steht, h ufig sogar ein direkt besprochenes Ereignis oder Bild zeigt, so beispiels weise de [...]


  21. Ho trovato questo libro molto divertente All inizio l inanellare gli aneddoti riprendendoli dopo poche pagine mi ha dato un vago senso di vertigine, ma capito il gioco mi sono lasciata andare e sono riuscita a godermi la lettura Illies ha messo su un piccolo divertimento intellettuale, perch riesce a far assaporare la temperie culturale e, in parte, politica presente in Europa alla vigilia della prima guerra mondiale Il libro centrato sulla scena mitteleuropea con la conseguente necessit di dove [...]

  23. For et herlig prosjekt Illies tar for seg hver m ned i 1913, og forteller om hva som skjer i livene til en del mennesker i den europeiske offentligheten F.eks Kafka, Franz Ferdinand, Picasso, og liknende Vi m ter dem i all deres menneskelighet, og da boka begrenser seg tidsmessig, blir de definert ut ifra situasjonen deres der og da, heller enn alt hva de fikk gjort i sitt liv Samtidig er prosjektet mer enn en oppsummering, for Illies har n ye valgt hva som skal med og ikke, og f r dermed etable [...]


  24. I ve read a fair amount of the run up to WWI but always from the English perspective This was a snapshot of cultural life in Germany and Austria Hungary with lots of players I don t know much about now I need to do some reading


  25. Read in Danish, but review in English I started this back in July and finally finished it now in February It wasn t hard to read I think the problem was that I thought I should read it so it became a chore The structure is intriguing This is a look at the world mostly Europe, and often mostly German speaking areas month by month throughout the year 1913 Each month, the author looks at what is happening to certain historical and cultural figures For example, at one point, he tells us what Hitler [...]


  26. You have to be a serious expert on the history of early 20th Century German art and literature to really appreciate this To really be effective it should contain reproductions of paintings etc although the good thing about Google is you can find most of it online In fact I was Googling quite often which is why I did not give this four stars I was kind of fascinated although I felt like I was at a party where everyone was in on all the jokes and gossip except me a lot histrionics and affairs amo [...]
