  vonKrolock: Zweig & Chess: (memory from E. Feder on his chess games with Zweig in Brazil - quote <"Ich bin ein schwacher Spieler, aber seine Kenntnis der Kunst war so gering, daß es mich Mühe kostete, ihn gelegentlich eine Partie gewinnen zu lassen"> or:'I am a weak player, but his knowledge of the art was so limited, that I it was very hard for me, to let him occasionally win a game'

Nevertheless, Zweig created one of the classics of the Chess tales : <"Schachnovelle"> , writen between 1938 and 1941 in Brazil (Petrópolis, Rio de Janeiro) published for the first time in Portuguese, together with two other stories, one of the 'three affections', "As Três Paixões" - (translator ?! - ) , September 1942, and soon after in German, in Buenos Aires in the same year, more preciselly in December 7th, in a limited edition of 300 copies. Earlier in that Year, Zweig (together with wife Lotte) comitted suicide in his home in Petrópolis (February 23th, a few days after the conclusion of the manuscript of his 'chessical story')

  TheFocus: Happy birthday, Arne Zwaig.
Jun-11-18  ChessHigherCat: <vonKrolock: Nevertheless, Zweig created one of the classics of the Chess tales : <"Schachnovelle"> , writen between 1938 and 1941 in Brazil>

Is this an article from "Pravda" or what?

<Arne Zwaig (born 6 February 1947[1]) is a Norwegian chess player who holds the title of International Master. He won the Norwegian chess championship in 1964 and 1969.>

Schachnovelle was written by the Austrian Stefan Zweig, who died in Brazil. He was unrelated to the German Arnold Zweig, another gifted writer whose name is a bit closer to Arne Zwaig's, but he never went to Brazil and had nothing to do with Schachnovelle or Arne Zwaig.
