About the Author:

Stefan Zweig (1881-1942) was an outstanding Austrian novelist, playwright, journalist, and biographer whose work became very popular in the US, South America, and Europe especially between the 1920s and 1930s.  In 1904 he earned his doctorate degree in philosophy at the University of Vienna. Throughout his life he remained a pacifist, and instead of becoming a soldier at the start of World War I, he worked in the Archives of the Ministry of War. He became friends with notable people in history, including Romain Rolland, Sigmund Freud, and Arthur Schitzler. Among his most famous writings are Beware of Pity, Chess Story, and his memoir The World of Yesterday.



Laurence Mintz is an independent scholar and visual artist. He was senior editor at Transaction Publishers for more than fifteen years. His main area of interest is in European cultural studies.

Review:

Long out of print, [Balzac, Dickens, Dostoevsky: Master Builders of the Spirit] features a new and informative introduction by Laurence Mintz who is their senior editor and currently directing a new series on European Cultural Studies. Zweig chose Balzac, Dickens, and Dostoevsky for his studies because the first drew from society for his subject matter, the second from the family, and their third from what Zweig described as 'of the One and of the All'. He drew comparisons, noted differences, and provided a wealth of insights and occasional iconoclastic observations that continue to have significant relevance to the study of these three men's literary work. "Balzac, Dickens, and Dostoevsky" is the first of a proposed three volume series which will prove to be a valued and important addition to academic library Literary Studies reference collections and supplemental reading lists.” -- Midwest Review
