Summary Twenty-four Hours in the Life of a Woman Letter from an Unknown Woman Fantastic Night The Fowler Snared The Invisible Collection Buchmendel Twenty-Four Hours in the Life of a Woman is the story of a middle-aged English widow who travels to escape loneliness and boredom. One evening at the Monte Carlo Casino, she becomes mesmerised by the obsessive gambling of a young Polish aristocrat. This fateful encounter leads to passion, despair and death, changing their lives forever. Letter from an Unknown Woman, Zweig's poignant and heartbreaking tale of the strength and madness of unrequited love. In 1948 it was made into a film by Max Ophuls starring Joan Fontaine. In The Fowler Snared, it is the man whose passion remains unrequited. Fantastic Night is the story of an evening that transforms the life of a rich and bored young man. His experiences jolt him out of his languor and give him a newfound relish for life, which is then cut short by the Great War. The Invisible Collection and Buchmendel, two of Zweig's most powerful works, explore lives led in the single minded pursuit of art and literature against a backdrop of poverty and corruption.
