Most widely held works by Robert Musil
Der Mann ohne Eigenschaften, Roman by Robert Musil( Book )
342 editions published between 1930 and 2016 in 11 languages and held by 1,713 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
The confusions of young Törless by Robert Musil( Book )
227 editions published between 1955 and 2015 in 13 languages and held by 1,687 libraries worldwide
At an isolated military school on the fringes of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, four young cadets - Torless, Beineberg, Reiting and their victim Basini - drift further away from their school-fellows into a world of ritual, secrecy and torture
Five women by Robert Musil( Book )
226 editions published between 1900 and 2013 in 10 languages and held by 1,329 libraries worldwide

Die Verwirrungen des Zöglings Törless by Robert Musil( Book )
290 editions published between 1906 and 2017 in 6 languages and held by 1,210 libraries worldwide
Zu Beginn des Romans ertappen Törleß und zwei weitere Kadetten eines Militärinternats der k.u.k. Donaumonarchie ihren Mitschüler Basini beim Stehlen einer beträchtlichen Summe Geldes. Sie verzichten jedoch darauf, den Außenseiter zu melden: Stattdessen nutzen sie die Gelegenheit, um den aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammenden Jungen fortan zu erpressen, zu foltern und zu missbrauchen. Während sich Musils Protagonist zunächst zurückhaltender als seine beiden Kameraden gibt, benutzen die zwei anderen Basini, um sich im Ausüben von Macht zu schulen und religiös-sadistische Praktiken an ihm zu testen. Doch auch Törleß entdeckt bald den Reiz, den die Unterwerfung einer ihm ausgelieferten Person in sich birgt. In einer ungekürzten Lesung des RBB entwickelt Musils Text als Hörbuch seine ganze Tiefe - selten lagen Vertrautheit und Kontrolle, Sadismus und Mitgefühl so nah beieinander

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

Dieses Schauspiel Robert Musils, von Kennern und Kritikern geschätzt und gerühmt, galt lange Zeit als unspielbar. In Berlin endete 1929 die Inszenierung einer von Musil bekämpften gekürzten Fassung mit dem "Schwärmer-Skandal", der im Anhang zu diesem Buch dokumentiert wird. Erst 1955 kamen "Die Schwärmer" in Darmstadt wieder auf die Bühne; im 100. Geburtsjahr Robert Musils, 1980, erlebte das Stück am Akademietheater des Wiener Burgtheaters unter Erwin Axer und am Schlosspark-Theater Berlin unter Hans Neuenfels Triumphe und bewies seine ungebrochene Aktualität
