The confusions of young Törless by Robert Musil( Book )

503 editions published between 1906 and 2021 in 17 languages and held by 3,110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Like his contemporary and rival Sigmund Freud, Robert Musil boldly explored the dark, irrational undercurrents beneath the calm surface of bourgeois life. The Confusions of Young Torless, published while he was a student, uncovers the bullying, snobbery, and vicious homoerotic violence at an elite boys' academy. Unsparingly honest in its depiction of the author's tangled feelings about his mother, other women, and male bonding, it also vividly illustrates the crisis of a whole society, where the breakdown of traditional values and the cult of pitiless masculine strength were soon to lead to the cataclysm of the First World War and later to the rise of fascism. A century later, Musil's first novel still retains its shocking, prophetic power--back cover

This collection of satirical pieces, short stories and reflections was originally published in Zurich in 1936. The author peers through microscopes and telescopes, describes a fly's struggle with a flypaper, muses on doors, monuments, the guests in a Roman boarding-house, the laughter of a horse, the movements of his beloved as she prepares for bed. Musil's quest for the essential is always a voyage into minute particulars like these

"Toda la acción transcurre bajo el mismo techo, escenario en el que se desarrolla un continuo y por momentos velado duelo entre los antagonistas Anselm y Thomas, en el que la mujer y la hermana del último, María y Regine respectivamente, son tanto víctimas como partícipes del drama que se gesta, al igual que el egregio Josef, esposo en turno de Regine, y el misterioso y racional detective Stader, cuyo implacable ojo amenaza con poner al descubierto los punzantes secretos que unen y contraponen a los habitantes de la casa. A través de ellos, Musil roza temas de gran vigencia y universalidad como la endogamia, el incesto y el peso de la culpa que genera la memoria de un amante muerto."--Cubierta trasera

"Célèbre surtout pour son œuvre romanesque, Robert Musil (1880-1942) est aussi l'auteur de nombreux essais, conférences et aphorismes, qui le montrent attentif aux mutations de la conscience moderne. De la bêtise, qu'il considérait comme l'un de ses textes majeurs, aborde un sujet tabou dans la pensée classique : confrontée à son contraire, la réflexion ne court-elle pas le risque de vaciller sur ses bases? "Si la bêtise ne ressemblait pas à s'y méprendre au progrès, au talent, à l'espoir ou au perfectionnement, personne ne voudrait être bête."--Résumé de l'éditeur
