Arthur Schnitzler: Später Ruhm


Fame comes late for Eduard Saxberger. A young man visits him and reveals himself to be a reader of a small book, with which Saxberger had once caused a furore. His literary admirer invites him to a writers' circle where he is honoured as a role model. At first ashamed to be reminded of the lost past, then fascinated by debates about what true art is, Saxberger finally joins the writers. But, as he is soon to discover, he is unable to produce new work.
