Despite the many lavish descriptions of how to fight bureaucracy with drunkenness dell ironic stupidity, it’s long, it gets very repetitive, and I don’t think I had the cultural context to really appreciate it. But a substantial amount of this is pretty universal, broad humor There’s a freedom there which not even Socialists have ever dreamed of.
By then it was beginning to pall and soldaso was still pages to go. Or so I found, at any rate.
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. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. I found this book quite a difficult read mostly because the main narrative is often interrupted by anecdotes told by Svejk.
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.

Onto the next antic Trivia About The Good Soldier Hasek’s point about the futility of war is amply illustrated and there is a good bit of humor in the story. It was also frustrating not knowing where all the places mentioned are as it made difficult to follow his movements. While perusing Svejk was interesting in a historical sense, unfortunately I ended up not finding it as enjoyable as Abenturas had hoped. It’s not that it was bad, it was xoldado it was so overly aventudas and repetitive that the mild humour became overshadowed by the ‘oh here we go again’ as the anti hero launched into one of his innumerable tales about dog only knows what until my eyes glazed over, my brain melted out my ears and I thought of about 10 other books that I could be reading right now instead of this.

Apparently an enigma – is he an idiot or cannily playing the part to survive? The book follows Svejk, who is either an idiot or very good at playing one — as he becomes a Czech soldier svehk World War I. But I for one, am glad that Heller transmitted whatever he saw in Svejk to me in a way that could blow my teenage mind forever in his own book. Svejk was really dim 2.
Solddado Preview See a Problem? He wasn’t a particularly moral man not by modern standards anywayhe seemed rather racist and bigoted and happily stole from the peasantry and Jews, which didn’t make it any easier to have to spend so much time around him. That is not enough reason to send him to die on the frontline. I thought I was going to love it, obviously.
His long winded stories which drive the other characters to distraction are rarely funny and your sympathy is more often with whoever is listening. I’m aventuars uneasily in my chair just thinking about it! In fact, that was the problem with Svejk, from where I see him.
Las aventuras del buen soldado Svejk : Jaroslav Hasek :
There are about a zillion different Svejk antics in the book, that mostly end up the same way– he nearly gets, jailed, committed or executed but someone believes he is just too dumb for words and therefore he is saved.
I’m not sure if this book could be recommended to any specific type of person. Let me begin by saying that I didn’t read this in the original Czech but in translation sbejk I was living thereand the book seemed ddel flat to me.
The actor is asking a woman – Yes… aventufas Then I can take your place In the adaptation that I listened to, Svejk is played by another actor who was considered one of the best, if not the very best of his generation: The futility, even predestination, of life among the plebs results in endless drinking and plenty of shitting. How old is the title character during the events of the book?
Acknowledging that humour can be difficult to translate, this book still drags on and on and on. Which made me realize something though I wanted to read this because I knew svvejk Svejk was the forbear of one of the ur-texts of sad-eyed high school existentialists, namely, Catch Like, I am sure academics who study enough other stuff can grok Svejk in its full grooviness.
When something comical does occur, it’s generally of the pratfall variety, and over too quickly to be entertaining, followed deel another 50 pages of pointless explication. This is a shame because there are fragments of a great novel here and there.
It could be that the humour was too straightforward in Svejk.
Still, i was unconvinced and I may have tto try a different vesion with a different translator. View all 7 comments.
