Product Overview

1920. Authorized Translation. Schnitzler's plays, novellas, and novels of fin-de-siecle Vienna are distinguished by their sparkling wit, brilliant style, and clinical observations of human psychology and social disintegration. His concern is with individual happiness, his approach is subtle and amoral, his tone unsentimental and ironic, and his dramatic problems often focused on love and sexual faithfulness. Hands Around is a series of ten comedies-miniatures in dialogue between man and woman in various ages and walks of life. Transgressing the merely literary, they are psychological studies of the interplay of sex, and keen analyses of the sophisticated modern soul, done with freedom and finesse. There are no grim questions of right and wrong in these subtle revelations of the merely human. In fact one might call them studies in the etiquette of the liaison and all its nuances.
