Der Weg ins Freie

summary Der Weg ins Freie

A finely drawn portrayal of the disintegration of Austrian liberal society under the impact of nationalism and anti semitism The Road into the Open Der Weg ins Freie 1908 is a remarkable novel by a major Austrian writer of the early twentieth century Set in fin de siècle Austria the cafés salons and musical concerts freuented by the Viennese elite Schn The Road into the Open is at the most basic a coming of age story It centers upon the young Christian aristocratic Baron Georg Wegethin and the two worlds he inhabits the love affair with a Jewish middle class singer Anna Rosner; and the Jewish intellectuals and writers who attend the salon of the wealthy industrialists the EhrenbergsThe first uestion that came to my mind was why would Schnitzler a Jew present for his main character a non Jew only to have this character float around in the Viennese Jewish intellectual milieu not that dissimilar to the one Schnitzler himself was occupying at the time It became clear to me uickly Schnitzler wanted a character who could take no sides in the various uestions that the Jewish community was debating at that time Each character proposed a position on Jewish identity and since Wegenthin was not Jewish he could hear each point without having to take a stance; further since Wegenthin was an accepted genius composer albeit an indolent one he embodied the lofty intellectual artist ideal outside of politics and mundane life The mundane life wrapped up in the possible future with Anna whom he has impregnated and has to decide whether or not to marryHowever after reading Zweig a contemporary of Schnitzler I cannot say that Schitzler lives up to my ideal of engaged writing Zweig is much exact in capturing a psychological mood Yet Schnitzler does use his characters to good use they deliver philosophical ideas succinctly such as in this passage Sentimentality is something that stands in direct opposition to feeling something with which one compensates for one's lack of feeling one's inner coldness Sentimentality is a feeling that one has bought so to speak for the purchase price Road into the Open also captures Vienna in one of its most glorified and historically rich moments something all the history books I have read on this subject have not done as wellAnyway for an even better and involved review I recommend this link this
