BOOKS BY HERMANN BROCH:

The Sleepwalkers: A Trilogy
1931-1932
Three novels depicting Europe between 1888 and 1918 (The Romantic, The Anarchist, The Realist). Broch's epic trilogy of daily life in Germany established him as an important modernist innovator.
The Death of Virgil
1945
This novel recreates the last 18 hours of the poet Virgil's life as he is brought to Brundisium. Broch, an Austrian Jewish refugee from Hitler's Europe, concerns himself here and in his other works with the place of literature in a culture in crisis.
