The confusions of young Törless by Robert Musil( Book )

18 editions published between 1955 and 1982 in 3 languages and held by 440 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

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

7 editions published between 1966 and 2015 in English and held by 37 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"--
Ernst David Kaiser und die Geschichte eines Mordes : literarische Wertung, Recherche zu Leben und Werk, Textauszüge by Mathias Schnitzler( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in German and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
