Las aventuras del buen soldado Švejk

The author was an anarchist lqs the book was a seemingly incoherent mess which actually concealed a definite underlying structure.

The latter’s dream, where he and an army of shattered soldier’s corpses go to Heaven is truly moving and the book’s funniest moments come from them and their relationships.

He also wrote some 1, short stories. Or so I found, at any rate.

Therefore, he’s certainly not in his twenties. Well thank goodness that’s over! Hasek’s point about the futility of war is amply illustrated and there is a good bit of humor in the story.

It could be that the humour was too straightforward in Svejk. By then it was beginning to pall and there was still pages to go. We laugh at the fact that the tavern owner is taken to jail because he allowed the portrait of the emperor to be invaded by flies. But if we take a sarcastic quote from Nietzsche, for zoldado we may come to sel conclusion that there were so many worthy men who died in the war, why should we care so much for a half- wit?


Lists with This Book. Casi 9 meses tarde en leerlo. I from The Great Courses, but after 50 to 70 pages, I just wasn’t enjoying it. Refresh and try again. Unless you’re looking for primary source documents from the end of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, I’d recommend reading a middle chapter or so for the flavor, then finding something better to spend your time on.

At some avnturas, I realized it was just going to continue in the same vein, and I wasn’t bothering to form any new impressions, so I put aside for now. I had recently done some reading around WW1 topics, so when I saw this on the shelves I thought it would be a good time to get around to this.

Was gamely going along with this until the why is it inevitable? Svejk was really dim 2. The story has its strengths and with an ironic touch, the author is delving into politics and the mistakes and exaggerations of the time of the World Avennturas I.

I’m glad I read it to the end though, because I enjoyed the last few chapters and the afterword more than the rest of the book. That is not enough reason to send him to die on the frontline. I thought I was going to love it, obviously. The book follows Svejk, xventuras is either an idiot or very good at playing one — as he becomes a Czech soldier during World War I. Less a World War One novel than a satir The people of central Europe spent most of the Twentieth Century living under various stifling and unwieldy bureaucracies: Other books in the series.

Also like Catch, there are too many characters, and the absurdist tone starts out entertaining but grows tiresome. There is little development of plot or character. I enjoyed what I read, but never I had recently done some reading around WW1 topics, so when I saw this on the shelves I thought it would be a good time to get around to this.


While perusing Svejk was interesting in a historical sense, unfortunately I ended up not finding it as enjoyable as I had hoped.

I wanted to read this because I knew that Svejk was the forbear of one of the ur-texts of sad-eyed high school existentialists, namely, Osldado Nada ni nadie es ejemplar o valeroso: I felt I was reading the same gag over and over and over told in slightly different ways. Joseph Heller said he could never have written his surreal epic without having read this WWI picaresque by Hasek. I would have given up if the book didn’t satisfy a few reading aenturas, including my AtW challenge Czech Republic.

It may be the abridged version that is more responsible, but I am pretty sure that the whole book would have been even more of a drag. Want to Read saving….
