The Confusions of Young Törless
At a bleak, isolated military school on the fringes of the Austro- Hungarian Empire, four young cadets - Torless, Beineberg, Reiting and their victim Basini - drift even further away from their school- fellows into a private world of ritual, secrecy and torture.
|The Man Without Qualities|
Ulrich has no qualities in the sense that his self-awareness is completely divorced from his abilities. He is drawn into a project, the 'Parallel Campaign,' to celebrate the 70th anniversary of Emperor Franz Joseph's coronation in 1918.
|Posthumous Papers of a Living Author|
This work, written mostly in the Twenties and first published in 1936, is a collection of satirical stories and essays that 'observe human life in the tiny traits by which it carelessly reveals itself.'
