The Man Without Qualities by Robert Musil Summary

Part satire, part visionary epic, part intellectual tour de force, The Man Without Qualities is a work of immeasurable importance. "One of the towering achievements of the European novel" Observer "Immensely rich and therapeutic, bristling with wit and a sly humour" Sunday Telegraph It is 1913, and Viennese high society is gripped by a mission to find an appropriate way of celebrating the seventieth jubilee of the accession of Emperor Franz Josef. But as the aristocracy tries to salvage something illustrious out of the collapse of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the ordinary Viennese world is beginning to show signs of more serious rebellion. Caught in the middle of this social labyrinth is Ulrich: youngish, rich, an ex-soldier, seducer and scientist. Unable to deceive himself that the jumble of attributes and values that his world has bestowed on him amounts to anything so innate as a 'character', he is effectively a man 'without qualities', a brilliant, detached observer of the spinning, racing society around him.

The Man Without Qualities by Morris Berman Summary

George Haskel, a retired professor of German literature, decides to found an institute to promote dullness, as a counterpoint to the hustling celebrity culture of contemporary America. The venture soon attracts a number of brilliant misfits, who transform the project into a political movement, the Authentic Party, that ultimately swells to 8 million members. Events begin to overtake George and his merry band, as luminaries such as Bill Maher, Woody Allen, and Jerry Brown get on board. The final showdown with the White House threatens a coup d'etat: Will America undertake a radical shift in the direction of authenticity, or will it remain committed to business as usual?"

L'homme sans qualités by Robert Musil Summary

Lorsque Ulrich, l'homme " sans qualités ", décide de renoncer à ses " essais pour devenir un grand homme " et de se mettre en congé de la vie, une période incertaine s'ouvre, celle d'une incomparable aventure et d'un effondrement. Ce roman, que Thomas Mann considérait comme un monument de la littérature allemande du XXe siècle, ce livre qui explore comme nul autre les ressources de l'intellect et du sentiment, offre aussi le plus extraordinaire tableau d'un monde qui allait être précipité dans la catastrophe, et dont Vienne fut, à bien des égards, le " laboratoire ".

Robert Musil's 'The Man Without Qualities' by Philip Payne Summary

Robert Musil's The Man without Qualities is perhaps the most important novel in German written in the twentieth century - certainly it is among the most brilliant, puzzling and profound. This, the first comprehensive study of the work to appear in English, guides the reader towards Musil's central concerns. It examines how Musil laboured through draft after draft to produce material that would pass his own strict literary 'quality control' and traces major themes through different layers of narrative with the aid of close textual analysis. It details how Musil subjects leading figures of fin-de-siecle Vienna to intense ironic scrutiny and how, by drawing on his extensive knowledge of philosophy, psychology, politics, sociology and science, he works into his novel essayistic statements which record the state of contemporary European civilisation. Through a disturbing and deeply serious liaison with his sister, Musil's hero Ulrich, is shown to struggle through to the brink of self-discovery and enlightenment.
