Der Mann ohne Eigenschaften, Roman by Robert Musil ( Book )
232 editions published between 1930 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 1,490 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
Die Verwirrungen des Zöglings Törless by Robert Musil ( Book )
256 editions published between 1906 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 1,144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In einem Militär-Internat entdecken die Kadetten Törleß, Reiting und Beineberg, dass ihr Mitschüler Basini gestohlen hat. Statt ihn zu verraten, benutzen sie ihn als Prügelknaben und Versuchsobjekt. Törleß ist zunächst nur Zeuge, beobachtet fassungslos, wie Basini sich demütigen lässt, wie sadistisch die anderen ihn missbrauchen. Als er schließlich einschreiten will, ist es zu spät, durch tatenloses Zusehen ist er längst Komplize geworden. Musils Erstlingswerk von 1906 ist das feinfühlige Porträt eines jungen Menschen auf der Suche nach sich selbst und den moralischen Grundsätzen seines Tuns. Robert Musils Debütroman in einer grandiosen Hörspiel-Adaption mit Stefan Konarske als Törleß, Michael Rotschopf als Erzähler u. v. a

The confusions of young Törless by Robert Musil ( Book )
13 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 390 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

L'homme sans qualités roman by Robert Musil ( Book )
46 editions published between 1956 and 2011 in French and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Laborieusement conçue entre 1931 et 1942, date de la mort de cet écrivain, cette immense mosaïque romanesque se classe aisément auprès de ##Le jeu de perles de verre## de Hermann Hesse et figure parmi les quelques sommets du roman contemporain dans la ligne Proust-Joyce. Originalité d'écriture, style intensément introspectif, éléments autobiographiques insérés s'y retrouvent en un long et vaste récit. La précision dans les caractères des personnages, dans la description des êtres et des choses ainsi que dans le style dont une excellente traduction ne peut rendre la beauté grave fournit à cette oeuvre une résonnance particulière. Ulrich, ##l'homme sans qualités##, est le seul parmi les hommes de qualité qui font partie de son paysage à percevoir, avec une lucidité terrible, la conjoncture des événements qui s'inscrivent à la veille de la guerre de 1914. Sans sombrer dans le roman philosophique ou le roman mystique (l'épisode d'Ulrich et de sa soeur qu'un étrange amour unit dans une quête d'absolu) malgré un regard lentement posé sur un monde brillant mais repensé par la réflexion, le récit garde un certain réalisme à la Balzac qui le rend encore actuel et prégnant. Pour lecteurs cultivés et patients
