The confusions of young Törless by Robert Musil( Book )

360 editions published between 1906 and 2015 in 12 languages and held by 2,494 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

Posthumous papers of a living author by Robert Musil( Book )

13 editions published between 1987 and 2012 in English and German and held by 544 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
The enthusiasts by Robert Musil( Book )

57 editions published between 1921 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 520 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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
