Robert Walser has nothing to do with politics as aforementioned (except for those of everyday life) or power (except for the metaphysical kind that seems to toss us in everywhich direction). Walser is a genious of the subtle, the surreal, and the everyday absurd. His stories seem so casually written at times, that it is easy to miss the depth and beauty of such simple revelries (as well as not so simple ones). Robert Walser considered himself a walker first and then a writer. Late in life he commited himself to an institution and gave up writting--but not walking.
