Anatol is an extremely charming and witty play. However, under the apparent lightheartedness is a trenchant criticism of turn of the century Vienna and all of the stock characters within. I especially like the dialogues between Max and Anatol. Max is one of the few who is willing to question Anatol's illusions and force him to examine his own lifestyle, which Anatol is actually incapable of doing. As demonstrated through his relationships with women, Anatol needs to have this constant string of relationships in order to reinforce his manhood and his sense of control and mastery. Anatol is a fascinating play, beautifully constructed. It is one of Schnitzler's most enduring plays and is still often performed. I think it has endured because of its close examination of male/female relationships and interactions. On the one hand it is a very interesting study of turn of the century Vienna, and on the other hand it is a very enjoyable play to read.
