About the Author

Robert Musil (November 6, 1880 - April 15, 1942) was an Austrian writer. Musil's Young Torless is a novel of troubled adolescence set in a military school, modeled on the one attended by both Musil and Rainer Maria Rilke. It was his first book and was immediately successful. He then abandoned his mostrar mais studies in engineering, logic, and experimental psychology and turned to writing. He was an officer in the Austrian army in World War I, lived in Berlin until the Nazis came to power, and finally settled in Geneva. He also wrote plays, essays, and short stories. The Man without Qualities, Musil's magnum opus, is a novel about the life and history of prewar Austria. It was unfinished when Musil died, though he had labored over the three-volume work for ten years. Encyclopedic in the manner of Proust and Dostoevsky, "it is a wonderful and prolonged fireworks display, a well-peopled comedy of ideas" (V. S. Pritchett)---and a critique of contemporary life. It made Musil's largely posthumous reputation. "Musil's whole scheme prophetically describes the bureaucratic condition of our world, and what can only be called the awful, deadly serious, and self-deceptive love affair of one committee for another" (Pritchett).

Every page is full of ideas on many philosophical subjects and levels of abstraction. The core theme is the exploration of the conflict between thinking and feeling, between rational and irrational, between letting emotions guide us and having strict rational control over our lives. Also this book is very sexy, funny, heartwarming, exciting and relatable. I wish it didn't end so soon.

On second read, this volume is much less interesting and enjoyable than the first. Musil's wonderful sarcasm and almost bitter humor are nearly absent and he grapples with "big questions" with much less grace.

This is an incredible series, one worth reading more than once. The characters are so unique and beautifully drawn. The language is lovely and the perspective on this time in history is very interesting.

El hombre sin atributos fue escrita entre 1930 y 1942 y quedó interrumpida por la muerte del autor. Los actores principales de esta tragicomedia monumental son: Ulrich, el hombre sin atributos, el matemático idealista, el sarcástico espectador; Leona y Bonadea, las dos amadas del matemático, desbancadas por Diotima, cerebro dirigente de la «Acción Paralela» y mujer cuya estupidez sólo es comparable a su hermosura; y Arnheim, el hombre con atributos, un millonario prusiano cuya conversación fluctúa entre las modernas técnicas de la inseminación artificial y las tallas medievales búlgaras.… (mais)
