Through articles, correspondence, manifestos, and fragments from his autobiography, Stefan Zweig clearly and forcefully demonstrates his position as a Jew and his own way of understanding Judaism in this collection, augmented by descriptions and analyses from Jean-Jacques Lafaye. The book delves into one of the most decisive aspects of the prolific writer s thoughts and life, and Zweig s writings show his passion for human beings and his argument that to be Jewish is nothing more than a form of humanism and a universal way of being a spiritual and cultural claim rather than a reductive hypothesis. From Zweig s views on Palestine, the Diaspora, and Europe during the dawn of Nazism, readers discover a perceptive, critical man and a lyrical conscience in this literary and moral testimony. "A traves de articulos, correspondencia, manifiestos y fragmentos concretos de su autobiografia, Stefan Zweig demuestra de manera clara y contundente su posicion como judio y su propia forma de entender el judaismo en esta recopilacion, aumentada por descripciones y analisis de Jean-Jacques Lafaye. El libro ahonda en uno de los aspectos mas decisivos del pensamiento y de la vida del escritor prolifico, y los escritos de Zweig muestra su pasion por el ser humano y su argumento de que ser judio no es otra cosa que una forma de humanismo y un modo de ser universal una reivindicacion espiritual y cultural mas que un postulado reductor. Con las opiniones de Zweig acerca de la Palestina, la diaspora y la Europa en los albores del nazismo, el lector descubre a un hombre lucido y critico y una conciencia lirica en este testimonio literario y moral.""show more
