In her preface to Robert Walser's Selected Stories, Susan Sontag describes Walser as "a good-humored, sweet Beckett." The more common comparison is to "a comic Kafka." Both formulations effectively describe the reading experience in these stories: the reader is obviously in the presence of a mind-bending genius, but one characterized by a wry, buoyant voice, as apparently cheerful as it is disturbing. Walser is one of the twentieth century's great modern masters--revered by everyone from Walter Benjamin to Hermann Hesse to W. G. Sebald--andSelected Stories gives the fullest display of his talent. "He is most at home in the mode of short fiction," according to J. M. Coetzee inThe New York Review of Books. The stories "show him at his dazzling best."… (més)

The walk seemed to be becoming more beautiful, rich, and long. Here at the railway crossing seemed to be the peak, or something like the center, from which again the gentle declivity would begin. Something akin to sorrow's golden bliss and melancholy's magic breathed around me like a quiet, lofty god.

—from 'The Walk'

Often I walked in the neighboring forest of fir and pine, whose beauties, wonderful winter solitudes, seemed to protect me from the onset of despair. Ineffably kind voices spoke down to me from the trees: 'You must not come to the hard conclusion that everything in the world is hard, false, and wicked. But come often to us; the forest likes you. In its company you will find health and good spirits again, and entertain more lofty and beautiful thoughts.'

—from 'Frau Wilke' ( )

I finally finished the complete book. I did like it. But I really do believe Susan Bernofsky makes Walser come alive in ways that Middleton, the translator of this particular book, for one reason or another, is unable to accomplish. I would love to re-read a Bernofsky translation of this same book, however. She did translate "The Walk" which is also included in this selection and it is very very good. ( )

I read most of the book, but the translator and I just do not get along too well. I really do believe Susan Bernofsky makes Walser come alive in ways that Middleton, the translator of this particular book, for one reason or another, is unable to accomplish. So, on we go. I would re-read a Bernofsky translation of this same book, however. I know she is working on "The Walk" as we speak. ( )
