Arthur Schnitzler (1862-1931) and Hermann Bahr (1863-1934), two of the leading literary personalities in turn-of-the-century Vienna, maintained a friendship that lasted forty years. These letters contribute to an understanding of the life, times, and writings of both of these important authors and provide another perspective on the Jung-Wien group.

This edition also includes Daviau's valuable annotations to the text, as well as brief biographies of figures mentioned in the letters. The introduction includes useful summaries of related texts not available for publication at the time.

Reviews

"Useful and interesting though these Schnitzler letters to Bahr clearly are, an equally valuable feature of this welcome volume is the exemplary scholarship of the editor. Professor Daviau, already a recognized authority on both Bahr and Schnitzler, contributes a model introduction and appreciation of the long relationship between the two leading intellectual figures of turn-of-the-century Vienna."--Monatshefte
