The elevator scene seemed taken out of an Almodovar film. So the play began. It takes place in a hotel — a health resort.

It scnitzler deals with the mademoisrlle position of women in society — where their flawed independence, their circumstantial need of money, and their sexual appeal are shuffled in different permutations to build a plot and develop themes, and thereby join the works by Henrik IbsenAugust Strindbergand Stefan Zweig A promising young actress played the role of Elsa.

She gradually managed to absorb our attention in an extremely intimidating venue. Where amdemoiselle were sitting did not provide the black and anonymous vacuum that confronts the players when on stage. Unlit audiences are like empty mirrors. Actors can talk to it and pretend they are safe. Instead this young lady could see our faces as we stared at her performed emotions. We were not an audience. And in that role we entered the work, for part of the plot circulates around her having to pose naked, which she did, in front of those with power, which we mademojselle we had.

But the acting Elsa, enveloped in the elegance of a Klimt but whose beauty was closer to the spell that Schiele creates in his drawings, retained her own power until she brought us back from our imagined visit to a Italian Kurort to the living amdemoiselle of a flat in Madrid. She had commanded our attention by her interpretation of this peculiar genre of dialogue-novel–created by Schnitzler– which if acted as a monologue requires the abilities of a ventriloquist.


Its fragrance of belonged to the inebriating night. We were told that this gin is the only one in the world distilled by a woman.

Not a bad drink to have after reflecting on the short life of Elsa — a woman distilled mademooselle an entrancing monologue by Schnitzler.

Mi viene da pensare alla Sconosciuta di Zweig, in fondo i due racconti brevi sono stati scritti a soli due anni di distanza l’uno dall’altro e Zweig e Schnitzler, entrambi viennesi, erano contemporanei.

Avrebbe sorriso del suo sguardo curioso e penetrante capace di scandagliare il perbenismo di facciata? View all 10 comments. Mi ricorda una storiella Zen, riportata in un libro di Bateson: Il maestro alza un bastone sulla testa del discepolo e gli dice con tono minaccioso: Elsw non dici nulla, ti colpisco “.

E Schnitzler ci descrive questo dramma personale costringendoci a pensare come lei, a immedesimarci in lei. Else come la traduzione inglese sceglie ” qualcos’altro “. Che cosa ci faccio altrimenti a questo mondo? Nel complesso, una bella e coinvolgente lettura, favorita da una prosa particolarmente scorrevole, a tratti colorita e frizzante.

Mademoiselle Else () – IMDb

Now thats how you do an internal monologue. Con la tecnica narrativa del monologo interiore Schnitzler compone un romanzo ardito con delle scelte stilistiche davvero interessanti. Le vicende ruotano intorno a Else una giovane ragazza di diciannove anni in vacanza in Italia presso l’albergo di sua zia. E fino a qui sembra tutto piuttosto lineare; fino a quando avviene la richiesta allo zio, che oltre ad essere avaro si rivela anche piuttosto perverso.

Altro che mondo di ieri: La signorina Else descrive un sistema sociale che assomiglia fin troppo a quello odierno. Ella trova infine il coraggio di parlare con Von Dorsday: Tutto si elss come detto in poche ore, diciamo tra le Durante questo tempo noi siamo dentro la testa di Elsee non la abbandoniamo un secondo. Ho solo maturato, leggendolo, un piccolo dubbio. Schnitzler scrive il racconto nelavendo passato la sessantina: Desde luego no me ha hecho sufrir ni la mitad, no es eso En cualquier caso no le puedo dar las 5 estrellas scunitzler no lo he llegado a disfrutar del todo Mar 08, Az rated it really liked it Shelves: Our protagonist, now confronted with a moral dilemma descends into apprehension and mental disquiet.

Aesthetically this novella reminds me of a Klimt painting. That may just be me making a mental leap on account of a shared nationality but I did find stylistic similarities.

Therefore, in this sympathetic portrayal we are given unique access into the inner-musings and anxieties of our eponymous protagonist. Schnitzler most successfully utilises this technique by transposing segments of monologue in between dialogue which serves to open up the character and give us insight to the story behind the story. We are therefore ‘behind the scenes’ throughout the entire tale, equally listening to her debate on which colour dress to wear and right beside her as she spirals into thoughts on suicide.


The reader is therefore expertly made acutely aware of the sexual ponderings of a sexual maturing woman. It should be said then that Schnitzler, way before the sexual revolution of the s found a unique way to portray sex in literature. This must have been something rather remarkable and original at the time and is probably one of the many factors why this novel was instantly so successful and perhaps why Schnitzler was considered one of the great innovators of Austrian literature.

Jan 09, James rated it liked it Shelves: Arthur Schnitzler was born in Vienna, Austria, in May Coming from a prominent family of medical doctors he became a doctor himself and worked first at the Vienna General Hospital and at the General Policlinic where he focused on hypnosis and suggestions. Even while a medical student Schnitzler began his career as a writer and that later on became his main occupation. Starting in he published poems, prose sketches and aphorisms. In his play, The Adventure of His Life, appeared in print, three years before it was first performed on stage.

His fame, however, is based on psychologically well founded plays like Anatol, Flirtation, and Reigen that shocked the audience of the time with a unique frankness about sexuality.

As a writer Arthur Schnitzler was a renegade obsessed with love and death as he said himself. He was one of the great innovators of Austrian literature and during his life encountered much praise as well as open malice for it.

Arthur Schnitzler died in Vienna in October Fraulein Else is a story of illness told through the form of interior monologue. Written in the heights of the modernist movement, Arthur Schnitzler used a stream of consciousness style to provide an unmediated glimpse into the interior life of a young woman.

In his sympathetic portrayal of a young woman’s life he provides a portrait that rivals that of Molly in Ulysses or the titular Mrs. Dalloway in Virginia Woolf’s famous novel. Mademoisellle the audible thoughts of a nineteen-year-old girl Schnitzler reveals what she dares not speak aloud and what her bourgeois society does not want to hear.

In the novella Schnitzler portrays a vital, high-spirited, and sensual young woman named Else who spends her days schnitzlet tennis and exchanging idle conversation with her Cousin Paul on whom she has a secret crush and Cissy, a married socialite who is having an affair with Paul. Else’s carefree and self-centered holiday takes an abrupt turn, however, when she receives an urgent letter from her mother with the news that Sdhnitzler father is about to suffer financial embarrassment.

He owes 30, guldens, an amount he must raise immediately.
