The work of writer, pacifist and refugee Stefan Zweig is as relevant today as it ever was. Published for the first time in English, Messages from a Lost World: Europe on the Brink contains essays and speeches from the ‘30s and ‘40s which make a timeless plea for sanity in a world where reason has been abandoned. Will Stone, himself a prize-winning poet, translator and essayist, will talk with Guardian literary critic Nicholas Lezard about the work of translating Zweig’s passionate arguments for tolerance, peace and a world without borders.
