  • 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 così 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 seconda [...]

  • 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 more a matter of making the sce [...]

  • Οι τρεις λέξεις που είπα με την ολοκλήρωση της ανάγνωσης: έξοχο, έξοχο, έξοχο!

  • 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, lik [...]

  • 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 tel [...]

  • 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 [...]

  • "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 tr [...]

  • 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 Scià 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 più difetti che pregi e non è affatto facile affezionarcisi: a partire dal barone Taittinger, un presuntuoso in [...]

  • 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 [...]

  • 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-à-vis the common people. The glum view of people just comes along for the ride (not that I necessarily disagree with Roth's sentiments).

  • Der Schah von Persien ist in Wien, verliebt sich in eine junge Dame und verlangt, dass die ihm zugeführt wird. Und da muss ein armes Double ran. Hört sich nett an, ist es auch ein wenig, aber doch hauptsächlich sehr bieder und öde. (5/10)

  • Это, в сущности, точно такая же книжка, как «Марш Радецкого», тем и прекрасна.

  • 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 [...]

  • 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 more 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 d [...]

  • 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 è però solo un pretesto, dato che è lo Scià di Persia, preso da giovanile inquietudine esistenziale, a dare avvio agli avvenimenti recandosi a Vienna, capitale dell'Impero.Presunto avvio, in realtà, che il vero avvio degli avvenimenti è frutto della noia e della nobiliare vanagloria di un inutile barone, vero e proprio paradigma dello sp [...]

  • 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 more 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 [...]

  • Met de komische verwikkelingen rond een bezoek van de Sjah van Perzië 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 egoïstische types.De beschreven sfeer is verwant aan die in de verhalen van Arthur Schnitzler, maar daar [...]

  • 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 more appropriate as it does indeed read like one of the 'Thousand and One Nights' tales with its rambling structur [...]

  • Den 1002. nat har ikke samme format som andre af Roths bøger. 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 dårlig bog. Det er en lettere sag, nærmest en komedie, men ikke uden satirisk bid og er i det hele taget præget af Roths sikre hånd (selv om den også bliver lidt lang i [...]

  • 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'eredità 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 più profondo del precedente, la follia nazista dell'Anschluss e della seconda guerra mondiale.

  • Joseph Roth é impiedoso e mordaz na sua análise da melancólica, aburguesada e decadente sociedade austríaca do fim do Império Austro-Húngaro, brilhantemente corporizada pelo inútil Barão Taittinger. Com ele e mais umas quantas personagens densas, este romance popular é um cordel de episódios divertidos e sádicos que acontecendo num contexto, capturam na verdade certos aspectos intemporais de qualquer sociedade humana.

  • I really enjoyed this novel, but was expecting more 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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".
