Stefan Zweig: European, Humanist, Collector Literature and Books


A study day to mark the 75th anniversary of the death of Stefan Zweig

Zweig is less well known for owning a prestigious collection of literary, musical and historical manuscripts, which was most generously donated to the British Library by his heirs in 1986. The collection comprises autograph musical scores from composers such as Beethoven, Mozart and Wagner, as well as original manuscripts of authors including Goethe, Balzac and Byron.

Join experts on Zweig as they discuss the cosmopolitan writer’s hopes for European unity and how his manuscript collection – his ‘magical circle of sublime figures’ – came to express these ideals. The study day commemorates the 75th anniversary of Zweig’s death, a death that was in part a result of his years in exile and thus his disconnection from the European culture he realised was lost to him forever. A new catalogue of the British Library’s Stefan Zweig Collection of Literary and Historical Manuscripts will be launched at a reception following the study day.

An accompanying display in the Treasures Gallery will showcase some of the treasures from Zweig’s collection.
