Also published as “Dream Story”, “Rhapsody” was later adapted for film by Stanley Kubrick under the title “Eyes Wide Shut”. Schnitzler, the Austrian author and dramatist (1862-1931), was a controversial writer whose frank depictions of sexuality and strong stance against anti-semitism led to his works often being consigned to the flames in later Nazi book burning episodes. Illustrator Donia Naschen was a Ukrainian-born British artist who designed posters for the British war effort in the 1940s. Scarce.
