      Καμία σύγχυση αισθημάτων. Μια γλυκιά, τρυφερή,γεμάτη συναισθήματα και σκέψεις εξομολόγηση. Η βαθιά πλατωνική αγάπη ενός φοιτητή φιλολογίας στο Βερολίνο για τον ηλικιωμένο καθηγητή του στο πανεπιστήμιο. Ο Ρολάν,είναι ο φοιτητής και ταυτόχρονα ο αφηγητής αυτής της ιστορίας [...]

      Θα είμαι ξεκάθαρη από την αρχή. Με αυτόν τον συγγραφέα δεν μπορώ να είμαι αντικειμενική. Ο τρόπος που έχει να λέει τοσα πολλά σε τόσες λίγες σελίδες είναι πραγματικά αξιοθαύμαστος. Παρόλα αυτά θεωρώ ότι πρόκειται πραγματικά για μια πανέμορφη νουβέλα. Ο ανεκπλήρωτος έρωτας [...]

      .c has rests as well as notes. (19)Master of the novella. Connoisseur of the human soul. His prose tears down the walls that separate the mind from the outside world. It finds its way towards the essence of being. And you will no longer inhabit your own body. You become one of his characters, for better or for worse. A young man was wasting his life until he had a conversation with his father that enlightened his path. That is how he ended up assisting to a talk with a brilliant professor whose [...]

      You should begin by hearing the language in the mouths of the poets who create and perfect it, you must have felt poetry warm and alive in your hearts before we start anatomizing it.How similar are we to those we teach, to those from whom we learn? This is the exploration. For when we reflect upon our lives, which one of our influencers will we find we've become? And at some point in our youthful, confused naiveté, what could we have overlooked?And so I, who have spent a lifetime depicting huma [...]

      ‪Just finished this little dark gem of a novella about forbidden love and suppressed sexuality. Starts slowly (and a bit wordy) but builds into a moving tale of torturous emotions. This is why I wish they had half stars as really it’s a 3.5 novella. As after a gently paced beginning, which took a little while to get into, it really grips you and forms one of the most vivid depictions of a mans struggle with his sexuality I’ve read.

      We live through myriads of seconds, yet it is always one, just one, that casts our entire inner world into turmoil.Roland, a well respected, older professor who holds an honored place in the ivory towers of academia, recalls his life as a young student, and his relationship to his own professor and mentor at that time-- a man whom he admired, obsessed over and wanted to emulate. He replays memories of his situation as a university student, having had a horrific grievance with his father, renting [...]

    9. Lee on said:

      Said something like oh man that's awesome when I finished (owing more to the final half-page chapter than the entire novella) but still I'll rate it 4.25 stars rounded down since it sometimes felt melodramatic, sensationalist, hysterical -- a review on here calls Zweig a watered-down Proust or Stendhal but that doesn't hold water for me since the passionate tilt-a-whirl overwrought feints and parries in the French biggies are pronounced and dramatized ad nauseum whereas here they're glossed over [...]

      "فوضى المشاعر" الرواية الثانية التي أقراها للأديب النمساوي ستيفان زفايغ التي وصفها النقاد بأنها أعظم ما كتبه هذا المؤلف وهي اكثر مؤلفاته إنسانية ومأساوية. وينصب اهتمام المؤلف فيها على الانفتاح على عالم الفكر ومعاناة جحيم الأهواء. فهي حكاية طالب هجر حياة المجون في بداية حيات [...]

      El bien amado Stefan Zweig (1881-1942), me ha regalado este libro para terminar el año 2017. Como siempre una obra entrañable y magistral, en donde el autor crea de manera muy vívida e íntima básicamente dos personalidades. La primera, y que se constituye como el narrador de la novela, es la de un joven alumno entusiasta e inexperto, inconstante en los estudios y amante de la vida mundana. La segunda es la de su maestro de Literatura Inglesa, quien sabe despertar en su alumno una apasionada [...]

      Confusion is about a university student who goes from party monster to serious student, becoming obsessed with his charismatic literature teacher – who has a “dark secret”! The two become close as the student helps the teacher write a book on Elizabethan theatre and then… things happen. Confusion is it for me and Stefan Zweig. Chess was a fine novella but everything I’ve read since has been mediocre to outright terrible; Confusion is firmly in the latter. It’s a self-consciously “l [...]

      Nasıl bir kitap insanın tüm duyularına hitap eder? Bir yazar nasıl bu kadar derinden hissetmemizi sağlar aklım almıyor. Hayatım boyunca ilk kez okuduğum bir kitap beni sarhoş etti. Her satır, her paragraf o kadar dolu ve akıcı, o kadar içten ve anlayışlıydı ki! Kıyıda köşede kalmış, önem vermediğimiz, basite aldığımız tüm duyguları o kadar usta bir dile anlatmış ki Zweig, keşke ömrü daha uzun olsaydı ve daha çok kitap bırakabilseydi. Nasıl bir yazar her [...]

      Con el correr de las novelas de Zweig voy notando elementos recurrentes tales como los triángulos amorosos, tensión sexual, historias dentro de historias, recuento desde el pasado. Esta vez hay un condimento extra que eleva una vez más la apuesta. Prefiero no spoilearlo y que sea tomado por sorpresa para los nuevos lectores a pesar que iniciado el relato este detalle se vislumbra. Su lenguaje y expresión nunca baja de excelente y lleva el plus de no aburrir nunca. Quizás por venir dosifican [...]

      5-6 tane Zweig hikayesi var kitapta. Karmaşık Duygular ise bu hikayelerden sonuncusunun, en uzununun ve en güzelinin adı. Bir üniversite hocasına hayran olan bir gencin hikayesi. Oldukça etkileyici. kitap zaten mükemmel her zaman ki gibi.

    16. Stef Smulders on said:

      A typical product of its era when the unconscious was only just discovered and writers started introducing characters that were tormented by hidden desires, nervous breakdowns, mental diseases. In that sense this novel is a bit outdated. The writing is superb, even in translation, with its long flowing sentences. The story itself is rather predictable, more now than when it was published probably and the subject doesn't shock the reader any more (I hope!). Fortunately Zweig really tries to portr [...]

      Let’s see. A slightly annoying narrator serving as a kind of amanuensis to a creative genius. He becomes obsessed, sublimated to the great, enigmatic man. Foreboding shadows creep in. And then a night in a rented room. Cinematic darkness, like music, falls. A Confession. when suddenly, ashamed and dismayed, I stood before his self-forgetful figure, I felt as if it were only Wagner sitting there, a physical shell in Faust’s garment…And the underlying tension?: (view spoiler)[men loving men, [...]

      Cada vez que acabo de ler um livro de Stefan Zweig só me ocorre um pensamento: como é possível que a Academia Sueca tenha ignorado e não tenha aclamado a obra deste extraordinário escritor austríaco concedendo-lhe um prémio Nobel da Literatura!! É francamente inconcebível que o seu nome não faça parte da galeria dos autores galardoados pela sua genialidade, inteligência, sensibilidade e criatividade! Não me conformoEmbora prefira a estrutura do romance à do conto ou à da novela, c [...]

    19. Chuck LoPresti on said:

      It's easy to dismiss Zweig as a pre-chewed Proust or half-stewed Stendhal and those criticisms are probably more than fair. But I think it's wrong to say that despite the relatively saccharine moments that Zweig doesn't write interesting books. I like Zweig's books the way I like music like the Carpenters. Sure it's all pretty obvious and pointed at a very general audience but there's something so polished and easy to digest that it's hard to ignore the skill on display. Zweig seems to have, at [...]

      Zweig ve karmaşık duyguları Kitap, insanın iç hesaplaşmalarını bolca tahlil eden öykülerden oluşuyor. Son öykünün ismi Karmaşık Duygular olmasına karşın kitapta derlenen öykülerin hepsi birer karmaşık duygu öyküsü aslında. Bana 5 yıldız verdiren öyküler ise özellikle son 3 öykü: Zıt İkizler, Bir Çöküşün Öyküsü ve Karmaşık Duygular. Zweig'ın kişileriyle her an her yerde karşılaşabilirsiniz.

      For if one feels reverent passion even of a pure nature for a woman, it unconsciously strives for physical fulfilment; nature has created an image of ultimate union for it in the possession of the body--but how can a passion of the mind, offered by one man to another and impossible to fulfil, ever find complete satisfaction?I am very happy to have discovered Zweig thanks to a few of my GR friends (M. Sarki and Lee). He's a very good writer, and I was completely at the mercy of this story the who [...]

      Kısa ve uzun öykülerle eserin adını taşıyan bir novelladan oluşuyor kitap. Öyküler güzeldi, hepsi birbirinden farklı temalarla örülse de genel olarak hüzünlü, melankolik ve umutsuz tutkulara saplanmış insanları okuyorsunuz. Karmaşık Duygular ise Amok Koşucusu'yla eş değerde, okudukça hatanın nerede olduğunu sorgulatan ve insanların tüm düşüncesiz yargılayışlarını harika şekilde yansıtan bir novella. Ve son olarak "n de seni seviyorum."

      Μια εξαιρετικά καλογραμμένη νουβέλα που αγγίζει ένα ιδιαίτερα ευαίσθητο θέμα, αντιμετωπίζοντάς το με αξιοθαύμαστη ευαισθησία και κατανόηση, παρά τις αντιλήψεις της εποχής στην οποία γράφτηκε. Εντυπωσιακό.

      Scritto nel 1927 è un racconto breve ma intenso che ha il potere di catturare l'attenzione del lettore non solo per lo stile alto ed elegante della scrittura ma anche per la fine introspezione psicologica rappresentata. La tematica è l'omosessualità segreta, nascosta e svelata e il naturale turbamento che ne deriva. L'io narrante è un professore che rivela il segreto che la sua biografia ufficiale non può raccontare perché non conosciuto in quanto turbatore della morale borghese. Con un 'e [...]
