Sunday, November 29, “Leporella” by Stefan Zweig. German Literature Month V has only a few days left.

Skaknovelle – Leporella

I have greatly enjoyed participating in this wonderful event. I commend and thank the hosts for their hard work. There are lots of wonderful edifying posts by event participants. A brilliant recreation of life in Nazi Germany.

A fascinating social history.

Read the major works first. A Homage to Paul Celan. Sex and the City redone in the Weimer Republic.

The Reading Life: “Leporella” by Stefan Zweig.

A panoramic view of the Weimer Republic. Three Short stories published in Vienna Tales no post. Leporel,a is the last day of German Literature Month V. The event really motivated me to read some great literature.


I will do a close out leporellaa probably tommorow but I offer my great gratitude to the Hosts for their hard work and support. Stefan Zweig is one of my favorite authors. Sometimes he may be melodramatic but he can tell a great story and has tremendous cultural depth.

Leporella : Stefan Zweig :

He is entertaining, not for nothing was he once the most translated German language writer. The center piece of the story is a mentally challenged woman who works as helper in the house of a Baron. The Baron married his wife for her money, once married he resumed the ways of a dissolute playboy bachelor. He was so uninterested in his wife the marriage was never consummated.

The wife is bitter over how she is treated, she tries to get back at her husband by withholding money from him but he gets around this.

One day one of his temporary loves, a young opera student refers to the helper as his “Leporella”, a reference to a lover of Don Giovanni in the Mozart Zwelg and soon he starts to call her that.


She falls in love with the Baron when he gives her a trivial gift and even begins to procure girls for him.

English-German Dictionary

I found that aspect of the story especially fascinating. It was zweit if Leporella was vicariously having sex with the Baron.

She is presented as completely without sexual qualities, fit just to work. Needless to say this does not work out well!

I don’t want to spoil the elporella of the plot other than to say there are several fascinating turns of events. This is a look at a bitter world. G L VStefan Zweig. Newer Post Older Post Home.
