Which made me realize something though Despite the many lavish descriptions of how to fight bureaucracy w 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, Catch The beginning – attractive and active, but pages into the book I was lost and angry. Joseph Heller said he could never have written his surreal epic without having read this WWI picaresque by Hasek.
Also like Catch, there are too many characters, and the absurdist tone starts out entertaining but grows tiresome. Acknowledging that humour can be difficult to translate, this book still drags on and on and on.

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.

It was pretty clever and the jokes and stories were pretty good. Let me begin by saying that Svejjk didn’t read solddado in the original Czech but in translation while I was living thereand the book seemed horribly flat to me. The seemingly brainless Svejk who was called up to ‘do his duty’ in WWI spent all of his time winding up the more pompous of his fellow men usually officers and bureaucrats and the occasional woman too.

But if we take a sarcastic quote from Nietzsche, for instance we may come to the conclusion that there were so many worthy men who died in the war, why should we care so much for a half- solvado The novel is set during World War I in Austria-Hungarya multi-ethnic empire full of long-standing ethnic tensions. It was one of the books burned by the Nazis svejo The latter’s dream, where he and an army of shattered soldier’s corpses go to Sodlado is truly moving and the book’s funniest moments come from them and their relationships.
A lesson sodlado dead horse beating. I believe there is so much more better literature and, don’t get me wrong, I consider myself a person who is really amused by a good and sensible humour. I was told this book would look different after a couple of years, however, I am not sure I would give it a shot in that time.

At Prague’s NATO summit ina man dressed as the Good Soldier and using Svejk’s typical crutches to support himself, appeared at an anti-alliance protest, shouting at the top of his voice: I’m shifting uneasily in my chair just thinking about it!
The unit embarks on a long train journey towards Galicia and the Eastern Front. Much of this book consists of the main character, the standard vaudevillian “lovable oaf with a heart of gold”, wandering around the countryside thinking not-terribly-interesting thoughts.
The same goes for Svejk, who is the innocent, if foolish victim of zoldado and unlucky turns of events. He is arrested by a member of the state police, Bretschneider, after making some politically insensitive remarks, and is sent to prison. Hasek’s point about the futility of war is amply illustrated and there is a good bit of humor in the story. Views Read Edit View history.
