The Man Without Qualities, Vol.2: Into the Millennium

The Man Without Qualities, Vol.2: Into the Millennium

By Robert Musil
Translated by Sophie Wilkins and Burton Pike

Set in Vienna on the eve of World War I, this great novel of ideas tells the story of Ulrich, ex-soldier and scientist, seducer and skeptic, who finds himself drafted into the grandiose plans for the 70th jubilee of the Emperor Franz Josef. This new translation--published in two elegant volumes--is the first to present Musil's complete text, including material that remained unpublished during his lifetime.

"Musil belongs in the company of Joyce, Proust, Kafka, and Svevo. . . . (This translation) is a literary and intellectual event of singular importance."--New Republic.
