"stories by Schnitzler"
Dr. Arthur Schnitzler (1862-1931) was an Austrian author and playwright. He initially achieved his doctorate in medicine but gave up this career to devote himself to writing. He is noted for being the first German writer to use stream-of-consciousness in his work and tended to write mostly short stories and one act plays. He faced controversy for his frank and open explorations of sexuality, later leading his output to be described as ‘Jewish filth’ by Adolf Hitler; this comment could also have been due to Schnitzler’s passionate stances against Anti-Semitism. His short story ‘Dream Story’ (1925/6) was made into the film ‘Eyes Wide Shut’ (1999), the final completed work of Stanley Kubrick.
