    The take home message is read everything Zweig ever wrote Jeez Such flowing insightful lucid prose like a faucet streaming graceful intelligence across and down the pages A good book for November's melancholic seasons of mist and mellow fruitfulness Holderlin the ethereal poet Kleist the restless exaggerator Nietzsche the inspired light Totally compelling across the board biographical essays on creative genius and madness Goethe comes up all the time as a sort of rational gubernatorial foil to these inspiredpossessed folks Like all psych portraiture the fun part is self IDing shared traits In each case Zweig writes about them because they're off the chart extremes and again I'm thinking of Bernhard's art of exaggeration in Extinction A Novel it's exaggeration that always seems so essential for powerful creation as long as it's hyper truthful More true than truth Zweig's portraits are exaggerated most likely too these guys come off as legends mystics saints proto tragic rock stars But never did I think he was overdoing it or maybe every once in a while when talking about Nietzsche But again the thing I'll most remember about this one is that it will lead me to read all of Zweig particularly his biographies and Kleist and most of Nietzsche Holderlin doesn't interest me too much although I may have enjoyed his section the most Anyway a great literary biography recommended to anyone frazzled by trying to write etc Interesting that for so many writers I know it's not a spiritual struggle so much as a struggle for a shred of success struggles regarding whether or not to self promote self publish sell out and write something that as Bill Hicks says sucks Satan's cock it's refreshing therefore to read about these writers' old fashioned struggles with art and inspiration

    I have little enough time for writing this review So I won't But what I can tell you is that this book is a fine and perfect example of great writing Zweig is a master at teaching and expressing his thoughts clearly and he is so very interesting in his approach to this and any subject Though he was profiling three great artists of their own particular time in Holderlin Kleist and Nietzsche Zweig was primarily instructing us on the daemon which is a word I had heard prior to this reading but never had it explained to me in such clear and precise language Now at least I know what is wrong with me or what is right depending on your own personal perception of the artist's drive How frustration and unhappiness continue to press us on to better work and serious incisions into our consciousness This book is amazing on so many levels To say I loved it would be an inadeuate expression of my feelings for it It is a precious and important work written by a man who was such a great writer and thinker Zweig certainly did justice to the good and lasting memory of these three subjects misunderstood and rejected in their own time but who now live on in immortality as the great writers they really were The fact that all three were social outcasts was basically by their own design and it offered them the opportunity to perfect their work privately in a most violent and disruptive way that is scary and a threat to those of us who are delusional in the comforts of our daily living Truth is the world is always in chaos and we better not ever forget it

    There do exist such sort of books which you open to discover but can't continue reading you close it because of its tough and severe topic because of the durable agony of its characters However on one sunny day you suddenly realize that it would be better for you to go on reading it till the end It whispers that there is something hiding behind that will definitely help you to encounter the troubles and can light up a little candle on your dark suspicions about the world injustice towards people You can not figure it out why talented genius people have to suffer this much in their entire life? Why the people who enlight our path or our journey to the light of truth have to be faced with the most merciless sides of life?And the last uestion isWhy these people are so alone?Maybe no human being can embrace them as firmly as they embrace the wisdom of existenceExcellent

    I'm really bad at wrtinig rewievs but for this book I'll force myself to give it a tryBook is divided on three parts each describing life and work of a great German writer philosopherI don't know what it is about the author's style but for some reason every sentence you read feels like a uotation The translation is wonderful and inside of it you can feel the pride beauty and gentlesness i don't really care if this is an english word or not of german language To me the book was wonderful because for some time I've been studying Holderlin's Kleist's and Nietzsche's philosophy and it makes your whole concept of what you thought the person was complete Overall the book is beautifully written and it gives you a lot of pleasure while reading it Definatelly a work of art you'll read than one time

    A magnificent character study of three greats in German cultural history centered around the intriguing motif of struggling with an inner daemon The use of Goethe as the antimony to these three masters provides an excellent contrast and a thorough yet not exhaustive profile of another German cultural father

    Three tragic figures Hölderin Kleist and Nietzsche; their end Insane Suïcide Insane These essays are not histories or critical discussions of there works they are myths to celebrate the outsiders and “geniuses” that they where Zweig affirms he is not writing histories in the chapter about Nietzsche He is describing the life of these three man as theatre as a work of art and tragedy of the mind Geist 1 This statement is applicable for Hölderin and Kleist tooThe enthusiasm for these figures can be infections but often leads to repetitive statements where Zweig seems to be in love by his own ability to say the same in different ways His writing style is positive when he makes an allegory such as Nietzsche as a balloon that drops weight until it he free floats It is negative when he keeps on celebrating the spirit while not being able to take a critical stand for ie the relation between health and greatness of mindI would recommend these three essays to anyone with a interest in German intellectual history Between the lines there is so much to learn about romanticism how art is defined about the interbellum Zweigs own time I would not recommend this when you want a trustworthy research into to lives of these three authors It is a celebration of the extremes of human spirit because maybe we can discover the depth of human feeling and her borders there 231 “Und da ich hier sein Leben nicht als eine Historie sonder als ein Schauspiel durchaus als Kunstwerk und Tragodie des Geistes zu bilderen versuche” p2062 “Den immer nur an tragischen Naturen werden wir der Tief des Gefüls gewahr Un nur an den Maßlosen erkennt die Menschheit ihr äußerstes Maß” p2303 There are some rather entertaining comments about Kant and German philosophy in Der Kampf mit dem Dämon Hölderlin Kleist Nietzsche Zweig despises the ice cold post Kantian systematic philosophy that haunts the real creative spirit of poets The fact that the last words of his essays are referring to the borders of human feeling seems to be ironic as if Zweig is trying to be a Kantian Looking for the borders of Gefül instead of knowledge

    In addition to writing works of fiction Stefan Zweig was noted for his biographies and non fiction essays This book contains three related essays on three German writers the poet Friedrich Hölderlin the writer and playwright Heinrich von Kleist and the philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche These three have a number of things in common including a love of classic literature and Greece and importantly a streak of madness Both Hölderlin and Nietzsche went mad at the end of their lives and Kleist ended his at age 34 in a double suicide As a fan of Zweig's writing I was struck that this book is mostly what I would call old school criticism For someone who was a close personal friend of Sigmund Freud the book seems short of a real psychological analysis of the three men Neither is it an in depth analysis of their writing Rather it comes across as what you might have experienced sitting around after dinner listening to an erudite friend talk about three people that he considered significant to literary and cultural developments in the 19th century Taken at that level it's uite engaging Zweig was about as erudite a friend as one could possibly want Yet I always had the feeling that he was stopping short of really getting deeply into these three preferring to opine rather than analyze The fact Zweig himself ended his life in a double suicide with his wife brings him closer to Kleist than perhaps he even knew at the time he wrote these essays All my uibbles aside language never dies in Zweig's mouth; he's always interesting to read

    I read this because a I'm a Nietzsche junky who hasn't read all his stuff yet because I want to save it in order to delay the day when I get depressed because there is no Ubermensch to read and who still has a hard time spelling his name and b I've been wanting to read me some Zweig for a while Zweig did not disappoint in his book on three German writers whose artistic inner daemons ultimately destroyed them As a bonus I was introduced to Hölderlin and Kleist two writers I have yet to read isn't it funny that the you read the you realize you have yet to read? Hölderlin the poet lost his mind; being obsessed with poetry He could not function any but still somehow could recite brilliant improvised poetry when fans came to see him in his madness Kleist gave himself completely to his muse or daemon and killed himself at his apex after finally finding a woman willing to die with him Nietzsche as we know was brilliant and mad The crazier he got the brilliant he got until that horse got him Zweig treats him as a poet than a philosopher which I agree with when I first read Nietzsche it felt like scripture than philosophy surprisingly And interestingly the author Zweig also killed himself being perhaps another casualty of the daemon Zweig does not write as a literary critic or historian or anything similar He is pretty dramatic and poetic himself which suits the subject matter H may be a little too melodramatic for some readers but I dug it I will include a very over the top excerpt from the introductory chapter on the Antichrist so you can decide for yourself Too much?Such was Friedrich Nietzsche's tragedy and it had its roots in his utter loneliness Unexampled was the way in which an inordinate wealth of thought and feeling confronted a world monstrously void and impenetrably silent Not even an adversary worthy of his steel was vouchsafed him His indomitable will to think had to fall back upon his personal resources; for nowhere but in his own breast could he find answer and meet with resistance His all consuming ardour of thought clung to him like a Nessus shirt and in order to divest himself of it he tore away strips of his own burning flesh to stand bared before the ultimate truth before himself Icy airs blew upon his nakedness; the cry of his spirit met with stony silence; the leaden skies sank low above the head of this murderer of God who since no opponent was forthcoming proceeded to attack himself a self slayer a self knower showing no mercy The daemon within him hounded him out of his world and his day chasing him to the uttermost marge of his own being

  10. Fabio Fabio says:

    As others have pointed out Zweig's beautiful prose would be reason enough to read these portraits which are dramatic works of art than biographies but there is also practical value in this book because to grasp an intuition of the daemon is to delineate the axes and contrasts of literary genius The themes of isolation ascension and consumption at the hands of the daemon recur in each of these great German writers The variations and subtleties serve both as cautionary tales and inspiration Those uotation marks may serve as an example while all three share the seriousness of the German soul the daemon provides not only painful isolation but also lofty independence so those chased by the daemon like Nietzsche in his flight to the south or Hoelderin forever in the Hellas of poetry are supra nationionalists they are free from religion society and Patriotic strangulation They answer to a higher compulsion and their respite is not something as small as a nation If they belong to anything they belong to the sun itselfThe tradeoff between the flame and the fuel the constant flirtation with death the release into air as music and smoke once there is nothing solid left to burn These themes unfold at once elegiac and triumphant always in opposition to the apollonian Goethe who is earth than air and fire successful negotiator and exorcist tamer of the DaemonTo my mind identifying Goethe as the appropriate counterpart is the other key insight of the book It makes clear just how great these consumed souls are For the opposite of those consumed by the daemon is not simply the uninspired the salesmen the everyday conformists If that were the case the book could have been about Hank Chinaski and the daemon could be replaced by mere intoxication and a penchant for marginal living No this is a book about true Genius the kind you cannot buy with education or fake with one hit the kind that you cannot get rehab out of either the kind whose stakes are a lifetime of pain and eternity with the gods the kind that consumes and demands all life force in itself by itself for itself
