  • Paperback, Penguin Books, 2006, ISBN# 0140449914
THE GOOD SOLDIER SVEJK In The Good Soldier Svejk, celebrated Czech writer and anarchist Jaroslav Hasek combined dazzling wordplay and piercing satire in a hilariously subversive depiction of the futility of war. Good-natured and garrulous, Svejk becomes the Austrian army's most loyal Czech soldier when he is called up on the outbreak of World War I--although his bumbling attempts to get to the front serve only to prevent him from reaching it. Playing cards and getting drunk, he uses all his cunning and genial subterfuge to deal with the police, clergy, and officers who chivy him toward battle. Cecil Parrott's vibrant translation conveys the brilliant irreverence of this classic about a hapless Everyman caught in a vast bureaucratic machine.Introduction discusses Hasek's turbulent life as an anarchist, communist, and vagrantIncludes a pronunciation guide to Czech names, three maps, and the original illustrations by Josef LadaThe unabridged and unbowdlerized translation Read less
