The Disease of Youth deals with the efffects of war on society, revealing as a result problems of burning relevance to the present and interwoven with psychoanalytical clarity and agripping plot: It shows us young indivduals who, unable to love and slaves to to eroticism, are driven by a loss of values and a lack of orientation.
