    كيف تعرف أنّك بصدد قراءة عمل عبقري ؟بالنسبة لي صراحة هو تلك النوعية من الأعمال التّي تفاجئك، التّي تخبطك، التّي تلطمك، تصفعك، تضربك لا أدري كيف أصف حقيقة أو ماهية هذا الشعور، و لكن أظن أنّ أغلبكم قد جرّبه.تختار قصّة ما أو رواية أو حتّى كتاب و تبدأ في القراءة و كحال البدايات د [...]

    I detect strong parallels between reading a novel and the game of chess: there is the author sitting on one side, playing white, the reader on the other side, playing black; instead of the chess board and chess pieces there is the novel; the author’s opening chapter is the chess player’s opening, the middle of the novel is, of course, the middle game, and the closing chapter is the end game. If both author and reader expand their literary horizons and deepen their appreciation of life’s my [...]

    e4 e5 2. Nf3 d6An interesting short story that it's one of the most famous works by the writer Stefan Zweig that even sadly was published after his suicide.d4 Bg4When a story is presented in another language, some elements are lost in the translation, and I think that while Chess Story is a pretty good title, its original title was "The Royal Game" that I think it gives to the story an air of refinement, class and elegance.dxe5 Bxf3Besides my interest to try this author, I was intrigued about th [...]

    ‘The more one limits oneself, the closer one is to the infinite; these people, as unworldly as they seem, burrow like termites into their own particular material to construct, in miniature, a strange and utterly individual image of the world.’Chess, the ‘Royal Game’, ‘regally eschews the tyranny of chance and awards its palms of victory only to the intellect, or rather to a certain type of intellectual gift.’ Stefan Zweig plunges the reader into this cold, calculating world through a [...]

    This book is about the workings of the mind.But before I go into that, let me start by saying that to me the name of Stefan Zweig evokes a feeling of nostalgia. Of course, this is foremost due to the title of his famous memoirs, and because we know that he belonged to a world that was disappearing. And probably because he realized this he decided to depart from it.But for me it creates an additional longing. It makes me yearn for a world in which I did not yet exist, a world that followed Zweig [...]

    on earth exerts such pressure on the human soul as a void. (19)Black. White. Which is it? Which one is our nature? We can be good, we can be cruel. We praise ourselves saying being human entails being good. We have daily proofs that is not necessary the case. If we are meant to be good and we are not, our mind have lost the battle against a deviation. Or against our true nature. Now that is a depressing thought.I had this book on my to-read shelf for months. And I wasn't going to read it this so [...]

    The chessplayer and the non-chessplayer will read this classic novella in different ways. The non-chessplayer sees it as a tragedy where the noble but unworldly Dr. B is defeated by the oafish but practical Czentovic. Chess is used to symbolize the pure world of the mind, where Dr. B should triumph due to his superior intellectual powers, but discovers that his opponent's ruthlessness and greed are stronger. Czentovic cannot win fairly, but is perfectly happy to cheat.The chessplayer would like [...]

    If you want to experience the wonders of a powerful novella without compromising much on time front but at the same instant ready for a deep emotional involvement which would accelerate your heartbeat, if not at a fatal but abnormal rate then Chess Story is for you. A gripping work of fiction with unique characters and an impeccable narration that would not only make the fascination about the game of chess come alive but also convey the dynamics of human mind during the most testing times which [...]

    ChessStefan ZweigBefore the start of review, let me put across a warning to all probable readers of this novella that this book has two active beings- one is the reader of course but other one is the author himself, he keeps on following you or rather your moves right to end of the book or the game more appropriately. It may sound strange- so it is and Zweig is but only pleasantly, more you will come to know through the course of this review. Chess, the ‘Royal Game’ is not just a book it’s [...]

  • Duane

    One gets the sense that Zweig was projecting his inner turmoil, his insanity, into the character of Dr B. This projection was much too real, too disturbing to be fiction. Dr B's mental frailty was brought on by mental torture, total isolation, at the hands of Germany's Gestapo. Zweig's was troubled by the isolation from his country (Austria), his people, his culture. Dr B found his relief in the game of Chess, Zweig found his in writing. Quite a powerful story to be packed into 84 pages. 4.5 sta [...]

  • BlackOxford

    We Are Never AloneWith astounding concision in a short story about chess, Zweig outlines a profound psychological theory: that a human being’s greatest resource - the ability to reflect upon himself and his actions - is also his greatest vulnerability. Experience alone, without the capacity to reflect upon it, provides rigid rules for responding to situations which never quite repeat themselves. Reflective ability creates the ability to cope with entirely novel conditions through the power to [...]

  • Dolors

    A chessboard with sixty-four squares hidden in the folds of a checkered pattern bedspread represents much more than a mere pastime in Zweig’s short novella. The dichotomy of black and white pieces of divided consciousness locked inside a man struggling to keep sanity over mental torture. Chess moves, chess problems, imaginary games played in frenzied compulsion, both ruin and salvation of someone who has been deprived of the warmth of humanity, become the only means of creating meaning out of [...]

    I always considered chess the most boring game in the world. Two people sitting opposite each other, and between them chessboard with these funny figures that players move after few minutes cogitation. It seemed as exciting as snail racing. Apparently I was wrong.Chess Storycentres around two extraordinary men, being opposites in every term, personality, background, approaching to life. A chance meeting on an ocean liner gives them possibility to chess duel. It’s a great psychological study, d [...]

    My my, how times do change, they don't make um like this anymore. As for time, what a way to spend an hour. Exceptional!Stefan Zweig’s final achievement, and what an achievement, completed in Brazilian exile and sent off to his American publisher only days before his suicide in 1942. It is the only story in which Zweig looks at Nazism, and he does so with characteristic emphasis on the psychological.

    Αυτό το βιβλίο το λάτρεψα. Ο Τσβάιχ μέσα σε 120 σελίδες κατάφερε να δημιουργήσει ένα πραγματικό αριστούργημα. Ένα έργο το οποίο γράφτηκε κατά τη διάρκεια του Β’ Παγκοσμίου πολέμου, με θέμα, την αλαζονεία της ανθρώπινης φύσης, την μονομανία και την ψυχική φθορά, στον αγώνα του [...]

    Την Σκακιστική νουβέλα την είχα παρεξηγήσει. Έχω διαβάσει τόσα σχόλια που περιγράφουν το θέμα της με τόσο στομφώδεις, πομπώδεις σχολιασμούς, με τόσες αναλύσεις για φιλοσοφικές προεκτάσεις, που με είχαν τρομοκρατήσει. Φανταζόμουν ότι είναι ένα πολύ βαρύ ανάγνωσμα, δύσκολο [...]

    Stefan Zweig created an extraordinary, exciting, thought provoking novel in a typical, virtuosic self-writing style.

    Chess Story or the Royal Game is Stephan Zweig's autobiographical short story detailing how he used chess as a way to escape boredom while imprisoned by the Nazis. A mere 84 pages in length, Chess Story is the last book Zweig wrote before he and his wife committed suicide. In its pages, he details his relationship with the royal game of chess. We first meet grand champion Czentovic when he is orphaned at age 14 and living in a parsonage. A reclusive teen, he uses chess to get ahead and eventuall [...]

    If I didn’t have some weird neurotic rule against short stories and novellas qualifying for space on my “thrill me chill me fulfill me” shelf, this book would have totally gotten five stars from me. It really is that good.Last week I saw The Grand Budapest Hotel and even though I was majorly disappointed, there was a blurb at the end about how the movie was based on the writings of Stefan Zweig, whom I had heard of but didn’t know a great deal about. Then someone (I forget who) told me t [...]

    Yet how difficult, how impossible it is to imagine the life of an intellectually active person who reduces the world to a shuttle between black and white, who seeks fulfillment in a mere to-and-fro, forward-and-back of thirty-two pieces, someone for whom a new opening that allows the knight to be advanced instead of the pawn is in itself a great accomplished and a meager little piece of immortality in a corner of a chess book— someone, someone with a brain in his head, who, without going mad, [...]

  • Megan Baxter

    The emotional wallop of this book is far out of proportion to its size. At 84 pages, I read it in less than an hour. But that hour was filled with pain and hurt and hope and human persistence and human degradation and it hurt to read. Note: The rest of this review has been withdrawn due to the recent changes in policy and enforcement. You can read why I came to this decision here.In the meantime, you can read the entire review at Smorgasbook

    Με αφορμή την (σχετικά ενδιαφέρουσα) ταινία για τον Τσβάιχ που είδα πρόσφατα, είπα να ξαναδιαβάσω την τελευταία του νουβέλα. Πολλά έργα, λογοτεχνικά και εικαστικά (εδώ και αιώνες), έχουν εμπνευστεί από το σκάκι και αρκετά το έχουν ως κεντρικό θέμα τους. Ξεκινώντας από την απλ [...]
