Schrei by Stanisław Przybyszewski is a gripping and thought-provoking exploration of the human psyche. Set in the tumultuous world of late 19th century Berlin, the novel follows the lives of several characters who are deeply affected by societal norms and expectations.

Przybyszewski masterfully weaves together themes of art, passion, and madness, creating a complex and layered narrative that keeps the reader engaged from start to finish. The characters are vividly drawn and their struggles feel all too real, making the novel a poignant exploration of the human condition.

One of the most striking aspects of Schrei is Przybyszewski's writing style, which is both lyrical and descriptive. His prose is rich and evocative, painting a vivid picture of the world he portrays and drawing the reader into the characters' lives.

Overall, Schrei is a haunting and powerful work of literature that stays with the reader long after the final page. It is a must-read for anyone interested in exploring the darker corners of the human soul and delving into the complexities of human nature.

Book Description:
Der Roman ist eine Erinnerung an die Berliner Bohème-Zeit des Autors. Przybyszewsk erhielt die Anregung zu diesem Werk, als ihm der befreundete norwegische Maler Edvard Munch sein bekanntes Bild "Der Schrei" schenkte, welches wiederum angeregt durch eine Erzählung des Dichters entstanden war.
In der für den Autor typischen rustikalen Sprache, die nie ins Obszöne abgleitet, setzt sich Przybyszewski mit dem Ringen des Künstlers um sein Werk auseinander.
