Before his death in 1939, Joseph Roth produced 13 works of fiction most of them sardonic valentines to the Austro Hungarian Empire As a Galician Jew, not to mention a biting social critic, Roth knew that life under the Dual Monarchy was not exactly flawless Yet he retained a deep attachment to the old regime, which must have looked and civilized as the Nazis cBefore his death in 1939, Joseph Roth produced 13 works of fiction most of them sardonic valentines to the Austro Hungarian Empire As a Galician Jew, not to mention a biting social critic, Roth knew that life under the Dual Monarchy was not exactly flawless Yet he retained a deep attachment to the old regime, which must have looked and civilized as the Nazis came to power In 1933 he fled to Paris, where he commenced a slow, alcoholically induced suicide managing, however, to write several books, of which The Tale of the 1002nd Night was the last to appear Like so many of Roth s novels, this one is a celebration of Vienna in its pre Anschluss days during the 1870s, to be precise At this time, we re informed, the world was deeply and frivolously at peace In keeping with the frivolity, perhaps, Roth puts a fairy tale like spin on his memories He opens The Tale of the 1002nd Night with a state visit by the Shah of Iran, transforming historical fact into whimsical fiction And once he shifts the narrative to Vienna proper, his characters make their entrances and exits with brilliant, dreamlike rapidity It would be tempting to compare the entire story which revolves around the seduction and abandonment of the prostitute Mizzi Schinagl by the boneheaded Baron Taittinger to a puppet show But these puppets are capable of registering deep pain and transformation Taittinger, for example, gets to utter the first honest sentence

  1. Mille e una sono le favole che la bella Sherazade racconta al sultano Harun al Rashid per avere salva la vita E qui Roth ci illude che ce ne sia un altra Un ultima storia a celebrare le bellezze dell Oriente e la vita Partiamo cos dalla Persia con una storia che delle mille e una notte ha l ironia, la freschezza e l ingegno per arrivare a Vienna in una serie di vicende che si dipanano un anello dentro l altro facendoci scoprire personaggi che all inizio sembrano essere secondari ma che sono i ve [...]

  2. I have lost count of how many nights passed between our introduction to Baron Taittinger and his tragic end.Even the framework of the tale is one, of several, state visits paid by the Shah of Persia to Europe and specifically to Vienna, the story is not about the Persian emperor Correct, without him we would not have had some very important elements in the story, but it could as well have been the King of Farawayland.When Roth picks this frame for his tale, it is a matter of making the scene re [...]

  3. In this novel there is only one virtuous man Everyone else is weak, empty and selfish The characters don t have enough will power to change their unhappy circumstances The novel is pessimistic to the core when you think that finally there might be a solution and that these people might change, they are all quick to return to their original ineptness However, their unhappiness, whilst fed by their own inability to cope, finds its origins in the caprices and follies of powerful men Thus, like a py [...]

  4. Joseph Roth died in 1939, just months before the outbreak of the Second World War Die Geschichte von der 1002 Nacht, his novel published in English as The String of Pearls and translated by Michael Hofmann , is so infused with the sense of a way of life coming to an end that it is difficult not to sense Roth s unease about the transformation of Europe in those fag end days of the 1930s, of a war he knew must be coming But The String of Pearls is set in the nineteenth century, and so it tells of [...]

  5. The novel s translator Michael Hofmann described The Tale craftily as a fairy tale that had swallowed a novel, A strange and brilliant piece of fabulist fiction The Tale chews up structures of historical power and class stratifications on a large and somewhat fantastical scale and spits them out in the form of a warped story about a Baron and officer, the Captain of Horse, and his former lover Mizzi Schinagl, who goes from pauper to princess after being given a gift of pearls from the Shah of Sh [...]

  6. I might be capable of making figures that have heart, conscience, passion, emotion and decency But there s no call for that at all in the world People are only interested in monsters and freaks, so I give them their monsters The String of Pearls or, The 1002nd Night was one of the last books Joseph Roth finished Like Radetzky March and The Emperor s Tomb, it is set during the twilight years of the Austria Hungarian Empire, and although the trajectories of the main characters lives are tragic, Ro [...]

  7. Si tratta del primo romanzo di Joseph Roth che mi capita tra le mani grazie ad un adorabile bancarella dell usato.Il romanzo comincia e si conclude con la visita dello spocchioso Sci di Persia a Vienna, capitale dell Impero Asburgico E questo il pretesto che l autore utilizza per scatenare la vicenda principale del romanzo.I personaggi che si incontrano durante la lettura hanno pi difetti che pregi e non affatto facile affezionarcisi a partire dal barone Taittinger, un presuntuoso inetto capitan [...]

  8. In the spring of the year 18 , the Shah in Shah, the great, exalted and holy monarch, the absolute ruler and overlord of all the lands of Persia, began to feel a sense of malaise of a kind he had never experienced before.And so begins Joseph Roth s novel, The String of Pearls If it seems like the beginning of a fairy tale, or folk tale, then its original title, Die Geschichte von der 1002en Nacht The Tale of the 1002nd Night would probably support that For me the beginning of this novel felt so [...]

  9. Not as engaging as Rebellion, but Roth s dismal world view is certainly here in all its glory It does not seem to me that the story is meant to showcase that view like Rebellion does instead, I think that the story is relating and examining the end of Hapsburg society and its ilk , especially in regards to the aristocracy vis vis the common people The glum view of people just comes along for the ride not that I necessarily disagree with Roth s sentiments.

  11. Started with Roth cuz 0 We had recently been to Vienna and Bratislava once Pressburg, a city full of Germans and later Germans and Hungarians, before ending up as the capital of Slovakia I was endlessly curious about the multi national Empire, how it worked, what happened to it 1 I had found his name in Hobsbawm s autobiography and in his Mitteleuropean Destinies essay elsewhere, as the Jewish chronicler of the erstwhile Central European Empire cosmopolitan or Jewish Vienna 2 found his journalis [...]

  12. Joseph Roth once again as in his earlier The Radetsky March tells a story of downfall in the latter period of the Austro Hungarian Empire, although this book extends over perhaps less than twenty years while the earlier book covers than fifty The premise of the novel is the visit to Vienna by the Shah of Persia as Iran was then called during the 1870s This is based on a historical visit by the Shah to Europe about that time Sandwiched between the Shah s first and second visits, two decades apar [...]

  13. In Persia sono state scritte le novelle delle 1001 notte, e Roth ci regala invece quella che dovrebbe essere la milleduesima novella della serie.La Persia per solo un pretesto, dato che lo Sci di Persia, preso da giovanile inquietudine esistenziale, a dare avvio agli avvenimenti recandosi a Vienna, capitale dell Impero.Presunto avvio, in realt , che il vero avvio degli avvenimenti frutto della noia e della nobiliare vanagloria di un inutile barone, vero e proprio paradigma dello spleen dell Impe [...]

  14. I hesitate to use the word enjoy when describing this book, because this isn t the sort of book I would say I enjoy And I than appreciated it, which always to me sounds like a polite way of describing a classic that one didn t really like but doesn t want to say that because, hey, it s a classic This novel s events hinge around a visit by the Shah of Persia to Vienna in the late nineteenth century The story traces how a variety of people s lives change because of this visit, and while it s not [...]

  15. Met de komische verwikkelingen rond een bezoek van de Sjah van Perzi aan Oostenrijk begint deze, in droog ironische en aan Willem Elsschot of Albert Camus verwante stijl geschreven roman over de Baron von Taitinger en het simpele meisje Mizzi Schinagl die door hun onschuldige desinteresse in geld en andere wereldse zaken ondergaan aan de resultaten van hun daden en aan de handelingen van ego stische types.De beschreven sfeer is verwant aan die in de verhalen van Arthur Schnitzler, maar daar geen [...]

  16. Brilliant writing that captures the atmosphere of a time long since past I particularly enjoyed the sly humour underlying the elegiac tale of failed chivalry and selfishness.This particular edition which I discovered in a heap at a local second hand book stall is published as The String of Pearls but in many ways the original title, The Tale of the Thousand and Second Night, is appropriate as it does indeed read like one of the Thousand and One Nights tales with its rambling structure that even [...]

  17. Den 1002 nat har ikke samme format som andre af Roths b ger Den rummer ikke samme overbevisende eksistentielle smerte som Job og har heller ikke den poetiske tone som Roths noveller Den har en satirisk ironisk kant, som minder om Radetzkymarch, men mangler dennes historiske swung.Dermed ikke sagt, at Den 1002 nat er en d rlig bog Det er en lettere sag, n rmest en komedie, men ikke uden satirisk bid og er i det hele taget pr get af Roths sikre h nd selv om den ogs bliver lidt lang i spyttet i pas [...]

  18. Uno degli ultimi romanzi dello scrittore e giornalista austriaco, La milleduesima notte appare quasi in bilico tra la dimensione del testamento spirituale e la profezia apocalittica sui destini e l eredit di un mondo, l Austria dell ormai ex Impero Absburgico, che nel 1939, anno di uscita del libro, sta per essere inghiottito da un baratro ancora pi profondo del precedente, la follia nazista dell Anschluss e della seconda guerra mondiale Continua su ghettodeilettori

  19. Joseph Roth impiedoso e mordaz na sua an lise da melanc lica, aburguesada e decadente sociedade austr aca do fim do Imp rio Austro H ngaro, brilhantemente corporizada pelo in til Bar o Taittinger Com ele e mais umas quantas personagens densas, este romance popular um cordel de epis dios divertidos e s dicos que acontecendo num contexto, capturam na verdade certos aspectos intemporais de qualquer sociedade humana.

  20. I really enjoyed this novel, but was expecting from the ending, which just fizzled out and didn t seem to have any conclusion It had a nice circular plot, with all the characters from the start drawn together in the same place at the finale, yet the finale lacked power I really liked the character of Baron Taittinger, and Roth s descriptive prose.

  21. A frothy, enjoyable exercise that starts out Wodehousian and ends up Wharton ian, if Wharton s characters perceived their lives as a constant mixture of confusion and despair Ultimately maybe a bit glib for my taste, but the sense it conveys of spending one s life grasping at something that seems just beyond reach, and not quite understanding why, seemed pretty profound and true.

  22. The Shah of Persia, a beautiful countess, a look alike lady of the night, her madame, a eunuch, an opportunistic baron, and an ambitious editor converge in 19th century Vienna for what is best described by translator, Michael Hofmann as an index of folly and alienation in this novel by Joseph Roth.

  23. While the initial premise of the Persian Shah s visit to Vienna may seem odd for Roth, the tale as it develops is not at all out of character Low life, high life, the disappointments of life even among the titled.
