The confusions of young Törless by Robert Musil( Book )

13 editions published between 1955 and 1982 in 3 languages and held by 431 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."--BOOK JACKET

Letter to his father. Brief an den Vater by Franz Kafka( Book )

11 editions published between 1966 and 2015 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the most astonishing and revelatory pieces of writing ever produced by this twentieth-century literary icon, presented in both the original German and the English translation. Kafka's letter to his father is at once an exploration of his relationship to his father, his need to write, and the source of his fear--one that his father prompts in him but that is beyond the scope of Kafka's memory and power of reasoning. There is no greater text about authority, the disfiguring effects of shame, and, in particular, Kafka's lifelong need to have his father's unobtainable approval"--
