  • I would give this excellent set of critiques, edited by the estimable Harold Bloom, four stars except for its misleading label. Despite the byline, this is NOT Robert Musil's work or even a condensed version. These are very helpful commentaries, but if you want the original, you must go elsewhere.

  • This book says: by Robert Musil's, but it is not. Review carefuly before to be sure it is the one you are looking for

  • This is Musils philosophical masterpiece set in 1914 prior to the Great War and collapse of the Ausro-Hungarian empire.
    The story line-for what its worth-concerns Ulrich (the titular man without qualities) involvement in the 'Parallel Campaign' with many sub plots and themes concerning the sex murderer Moosbrugger; Ulrichs estrangement from his childhood friend Walter;his affair with Bonedea;his sisters leaving her husband. Entwined around this framework, Musil explores what is reality? What and how are morals made or come by? The pseudo realities we create and exist in, how little of truth we can actually attain; how history and who's in power shape and alter morals.
    This is a monumental work,still unfinished when Musil died, and having read all 1130 pages, I couldn't help thinking that it was still in draft; that Musil was merely pouring down his ideas en masse to eventually edit down to a 4 or 500 page novel.The thin story line means this lacks any pace and often you read pages of (albeit, facinating) philosophical treatise without having any story line to anchor them to as so little develops.
    At the risk of sounding snobish and big headed, you have to be well and widely read before taking this book on. Its deep complexity reminds of 'Moby Dick', but once read you find your mind resonating with 'Musilisms' and an enormous pool of philosophical knowledge. A kind of philosophical rosetta stone!
