East Dane Designer Men's Fashion. Shopbop Designer Fashion Brands. Die Schachnovelle tells of an improvised chess match between two passengers on a ship. One is the 'world champion' Mirko Czentovic, a surly, illiterate peasant with Apsberger-like monomaniacal genius at the game. The other is Dr.

B, a Jewish Austrian royalist, who had been interrogated by the Gestapo following the Anschluss in and who has now been 'granted' exile. The primary first-person narrator is McConner, an engineer with a bent for psycholanalysis who happens to remember salient details about the career of Czentovic and who therefore hopes to probe the phenomenon of his special ability. Most of the story, however, comes second-hand from Dr.

B, who confides the shocking truth of his own 'chess-madness' to McConner on deck over several hours. It's the same technique of using a 'displaced narrator' that Joseph Conrad employed so brilliantly in many of his novels; whether Zweig was consciously indebted to Conrad I can't say, but this is the second example of such Conradian structure that I've noted in Zweig's writing, the other being his short novella Der Amoklaufer.

See a Problem?

Zweig uses his narrative 'Chinese boxes' with fine precision and aplomb. B's story is the core of the book. It has been perceived, rightly, as an indictment of the inhumanity of Nazism and of the methods of 'mind control' and torture employed by the 'servants' of the Third Reich.

B is suspected of having information about the finances of the Catholic monasteries of Austria, by whom he was employed. He is imprisoned, but not in a rude concentration camp.

Instead he is locked in an almost bare room, deprived of all external stimuli, all variety, all communication for months on end. His only relief from this regimen of sensory deprivation comes in the form of manipulative, unpredictable interrogation.

By chance, Dr. B manages to steal a small book from the clothing of an interrogator. It's a manual of masterful chess matches. B thwarts his tormenters and risks his own sanity by devoting every fiber of his mind to frenetic monomaniacal mental chess.

Sensory deprivation and other methods of mind control were NOT a monopoly of the Nazis, however, as I could already have verified in BF Skinner and other behaviorists were prominent at Harvard and most other American universities back then.

There was a 'sensory deprivation' lab in use at Harvard, about which a certain amount of salacious gossip circulated, concerning unauthorized off-hours experiments in sensory overstimulation of the heterosexual sort.

There were also the notorious experiments with mind-altering drugs conducted by Timothy Leary and Richard Alpert. But those shenanigans were benign, merely naive efforts at spiritual and aesthetic enlightenment. The real experiments were 'top secret', though secrecy was oddly porous among intellectuals back then, the projects managed by the USA's "Office of Scientific Intelligence" and funded by the CIA.

There are books about it. I'm not making anything up. And I'm reasonably sure that even worse 'secrets' were more successfully concealed, which will never come to light.

The projects involved diverse efforts at mind control, extreme interrogation, memory erasure, and hypnotic suggestion. Sounds like "The Manchurian Candidate"? The specific interrogation techniques to be studied included the use of sensory deprivation, sensory bombardment, electric shock, hypnosis, physical torture, humiliation, sexual abuse, and a panoply of drugs including dangerous 'truth' serums and hallucinogens like LSD.

Some of the studies involved the recruitment of volunteers, even paid volunteers, but many of the subjects were denied what we now call the right to informed consent. Many were unwitting victims of extremely irresponsible and unethical practices.

The goals of the whole shameful process were clandestine; often the academic researchers who received 'grants' for their work were unaware of the sources of the money as well as of the intended uses of their conclusions.

But among them there were unquestionably some who "knew"! One example was Harvard professor Henry Murray, who had previously served as a psychological researcher with the OSS during World War II; Murray's most notorious research subject, in retrospect, was Theodore Kaczynski, the Unabomber, who entered Harvard at age 16 in and immediately began participating in Murray's projects. The background of MK-ULTRA, by the way, is significant; it had grown out of several covert American programs, following the Nuremberg Trials, to recruit former Nazi scientists with prior experience in extreme interrogation and behavior modification B in Stefan Zweig's Chess-Novel!

One could find a dark pleasure in the irony that the CIA and its minions had a seminal role in the genesis of the hip counter-culture that has so persistently bedeviled their right wing fanaticism. Poor Stefan Zweig had altogether too clear a vision of the villainy we humans are capable of. His indictment of the police state and its methods should not be perceived as limited to Hitler's Germany.

The frightful and criminal torment to which Dr. B was subjected in this 'fiction' survived the end of the Third Reich and became the government-supported curriculum of American higher education in my generation.

Stefan Zweig couldn't bear his own vision of the future; though safe in exile in Brazil, he committed suicide in Schachnovelle may have been his last work.
