The Confusions of Young Törless

Robert Musil
Mike Mitchell and Ritchie Robertson

Oxford World's Classics

  • A new translation of Musil's powerful first novel, a disturbing account of an adolescent's emotional and psychological development.
  • Prize-winning translator Mike Mitchell's excellent translation channels Musil's innovative style and richly inventive imagery.
  • This edition restores the original layout approved by Musil, and which gives a unique reading experience with the variations of pace that the author intended.
  • The only edition that provides a full, contextualizing introduction, by an authority on the Austrian fin de siècle from which the novel emerges, together with notes, a guide to further reading in English, and a chronology of Musil's life.
