The intensive editorial work currently being undertaken by teams in Austria, Germany and Great Britain is providing substantial new resources for academic study of and creative engagement with the work of Arthur Schnitzler (1862-1931), opening up new avenues of research and revealing previously obscured and unknown aspects of his writing processes and creative identity. While the writer himself bemoaned the tendency to view his work through the clichéd lens of recurrent themes (love, sex, dream, play, death), this volume explores where the twenty-first century is placing Schnitzler.
