He produced novels, plays, biographies, and journalist pieces. Zweig doesn’t dwell too much into to the details of each and every small thing that happened.

Eloquently written, this book tells the story of one man’s obsession to risk all to find the western sea-route to the world’s spice islands the Malukus.

Magellan was a Portuguese explorer who led the first expedition to sail from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean. Although he wasn’t alive to complete the entire journey himself after he was killed in a rather unnecessary battle with a local king in the Philippines, the expedition that he once led resulted in the first circumnavigation of the earth.

Magellan had to overcome the Portuguese king who tried to sabotage this voyage, the mutiny of his crew, hunger, thirst and very harsh weather.

Magallanes: El hombre y su gesta

Books by Stefan Zweig. I really enjoyed this biography of Magellan, although the more recent biography by Laurence Bergreen is better. The first half of the book – in which Zweig describes Magellan’s earlier travels to the East and to Morocco, his choice to turn his back on Portugal, to go and serve the Spanish Crown – takes a bit of persistence to get through but is necessary to understand the historical context, I think. Still, this is a compelling account of the incredible hardships the sailors went through: Finding only growing loneliness and disillusionment in their new surroundings, he and his second wife committed suicide.

He fought mutiny, storms, seemingly impossible navigational difficulties, hunger, despair, locals who didn’t like being pushed around by Europeans, and the daunting and unanticipated immensity of the Pacific Ocean itself, but the mission, despite beginning with men and five ships and ending with one ship and 18 men, was perhaps the greatest feat of Earth’s exploration ever accomplished.

He portrays him as a quiet introvert and as a very calculated man who rarely made any decision without considering the long term; he was also fairly harsh at least according to our standards todaybut yet very fair.
