Arnold Zweig’s numerous novels and collections of short stories or novellas have assured his place in literary history. The publication of Der Streit um den Sergeanten Grischa (1927; The Case of Sergeant Grischa, 1928), a novel adapted from his play for which he could find neither a publisher nor, until 1930, a producer, brought Zweig his first major success, although his earlier novel, Die Novellen um Claudia (1912; Claudia, 1930), was well received. Zweig published three volumes of poetry between 1910 and 1958. His essays and letters appear in ten volumes published between 1920 and 1968.
