In contrast to the heroic biographies of historical characters, which were very common at the time, Zweig depicts the protagonists of his texts as heroes not due to obvious heroic achievements, but due to their inner idealistic conviction. The essay collection Sternstunden der Menschheit [literally: Great Moments of Humanity; translated title: Decisive Moments in History] , which included five historical episodes in the first edition of , even became one of the best sold books at the time.
As with many of the novellas, the novel is set on the eve of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and can be read as a critique of the occasionally even fatal consequences of the predominantly superficial moral standards and etiquette. The two other novels, Clarissa [Clarissa] and Rausch der Verwandlung [literally: The Intoxication of Metamorphosis; translated title: The Post Office Girl], which both remained fragments, were published posthumously.
