The confusions of young Törless by Robert Musil( Book )

487 editions published between 1906 and 2017 in 14 languages and held by 2,893 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

GENERAL & LITERARY FICTION. As the nineteenth century draws to an end, young Torless is sent to a military boarding school for the sons of the nobility on the eastern outreaches of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Far from his comfortable, free-thinking bourgeois home and left to his own devices, he experiences the joy, pain and self-doubt of adolescence. He is confronted with desire and love, but also his own cruelty, as he finds himself participating in his fellow pupils' bullying campaigns. A dark Bildungsroman which shocked its readership at the time, Robert Musil's first novel is a fresco of psychoanalysis, philosophy, eroticism, snobbery, sado-masochism and schoolboy humour, a hothouse of alternately repressed and unchained desires that prefigure the carnage of both World Wars
Der Mann ohne Eigenschaften, Roman by Robert Musil( Book )

435 editions published between 1930 and 2016 in 11 languages and held by 2,023 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Es gibt Bücher, die man einfach gelesen haben muss. Man weiß es und schreckt doch vor ihnen zurück. Zu gewaltig, zu anspruchsvoll, zu ehrfurchtgebietend muten sie einen an. Robert Musils "Der Mann ohne Eigenschaften" ist solch ein Romankoloss: Man grüßt ihn artig, um sich dann blitzschnell aus dem Staub zu machen. Wer sich aber an dieses Gebirge von Buch herantraut, wird bald überrascht feststellen, wie leicht und amüsant es zu lesen ist, und sich wundern, warum er sich dieses Vergnügen so lange hat entgehen lassen. Wenn ein solch wagemutiger Leser dann auch noch zufällig ein so begnadeter Comic-Künstler wie Nicolas Mahler ist, dessen reduzierter Strich und lakonischer Humor ihn zu einem "internationalen Star der Zeichnerszene" (ARTE) werden ließen, entsteht aus der Begegnung mit Musils Jahrhundertroman etwas ganz und gar Einzigartiges: eine kongeniale Adaption, die ebenso tiefgründig wie übermütig ist
