The World of Yesterday is a tender narrative of our troubled times. It is the story of three eras (the book's original title was 'Three Lives') engagingly told: the honeyed 'world of security' before 1914, the fruitful decade and a half that followed in its wake, and the rapidly enclosing darkness of the Hitler era up to the Second World War. Narrating the crazed march of Europe from a refined utopia, where people never looked 'handsomer, stronger, healthier' to the charred remnants of a Superman's mechanised inferno, Zweig's work, to quote 19th-century dramatist Franz Grillparzer, traces 'the road of modern culture from humanism via nationalism to bestiality'.
