Author

Arthur Schnitzler (1862-1931) was one of the most prolific playwrights and novella writers in the final days of the Hapsburg monarchy (1804 to 1867, usually referred to as the Austrian Empire). His outspoken criticism of ingrained anti-Semitic prejudice, bourgeois hypocrisy and sexual double standards made him notorious. With a fine ear for dialogue and acute psychological observation, he became one of Austria’s leading modernist playwrights.
