Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Originally translated as None But the Brave in 1926, Lieutenant Gustl is one of the great Austrian writer Arthur Schnitzler’s most accomplished novels. Written entirely in the form of an interior monologue—the book highly influenced James Joyce in Ulysses—the novel recounts the moment-to-moment experiences of a swaggering Austrian military man. In a cloakroom argument after a comment, a baker, reacting to Gustl’s rudeness, grabs the soldier’s sword and orders him to have patience. Convinced he has been completely dishonored, Gustl ponders suicide and wanders through Vienna wishing for the baker’s death. When he learns that the baker has, in fact, died that evening from a stroke, he immediately returns to his aggressive and hateful nature, and relishes a duel he had entered into days before.

Synopsis:

A new printing of the popular novel by Schnitzler.

Synopsis:

Fiction. Austrian Literature. Translated from the German by Richard L. Simon. A major modernist of the period of Viennese intellectual activity from 1890 to 1930, Schnitzler portrays the psychological topography of his bourgeois milieu with startling definition. Author of numerous works of fiction and drama, and vociferous critic of contemporary Austria's militarism, Schnitzler met harsh anti-Semitism upon publishing LIEUTENANT GUSTL. James Joyce admitted to have been influenced by this book in writing Ulysses.

About the Author

Schnitzler was one of the major Austrian authors of the early part of the 20th century. His plays, such as Anatol and La Ronde continue to be performed throughout the world, the most recent of performances being Nicole Kidman in The Blue Room on Broadway. His novels, among them Lieutenant Gustl and Dream Story (the source of Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut) still have large audiences. Schnitzler made his living as a doctor, and employed the psychological approaches of his close friend Sigmund Freud .
