Abstract: With the analysis of the joint demise of Stefan Zweig and his second wife, Charlotte ( in 1942, the present article concludes a series of short essays dedicated to double suicides of famous European writers. It proposes a parallel between the tragic event and the suicide pact evoked in “The Post Office Girl”, the anticipatory novel published posthumously and written by the Austrian author long before his death. Some of the psychoanalytical assumptions advanced in two previous articles 14 of the series are reiterated here in relation to the Zweig case.
