Fear (German: Angst) is a 1925 novella by the Austrian writer Stefan Zweig. It was adapted into a 1928 silent film Angst directed by Hans Steinhoff and a 1954 film Fear directed by Roberto Rossellini.


Nicholas Lezard of The Guardian reviewed the book in 2010: "This is the stuff of melodrama: the typical Zweigian scenario in which, beneath the trappings of respectability, storms of carnal passion, guilt, shame and rage. It is no accident, you feel, that Zweig was writing at the same time and in the same city as Sigmund Freud."[1]
