Overview

Wie mehrere andere Werke Zweigs, welcher seinerzeit vom Wirken Sigmund Freuds fasziniert war, hat auch Der Amokläufer einen starken psychologischen Hintergrund: Die Geschichte handelt von einer extremen Besessenheit, die den Helden dazu bringt, sein Berufs- und Privatleben dieser Leidenschaft zu opfern, und die ihn schließlich in den Freitod treibt.

In 1934, under National Socialism, Zweig fled Austria for England, where he authored several novels, short stories, and biographies. In 1941 Zweig and his second wife traveled to Brazil, where they both committed suicide. NYRB Classics published his novels Chess Story and Beware of Pity.
