Великата епоха се нуждае от велики хора Съществуват незнайни герои скромни без славата на историята на Наполеон Ако анализираме техния характер той би затъмнил славата на Александър Македонски Днес из пражките улици вие можете да срещнете опърпан човек който сам дори не съзнава каква голяма роля е изиграл в историята на новата велика епоха Той си върви скромн Nowadays it's fun being locked up Švejk continued with relish There's no uartering no Spanish boots We've got bunks a table a bench We're not all suashed together like sardines we get soup; they give us bread and bring us a jug of water We've got our latrines right under our snouts You can see progress in everythingJaroslav Hašek was a born practical joker and mischief maker What better author to write a comic novel that's also a war novel than this renowned literary Czech hoaxer As Milan Kundera observed in Homer and Tolstoy war had a comprehensible meaning and people fighting the war knew what they were fighting for With Hašek things are much different soldiers like Švejk go off to battle without the foggiest idea why they are fighting and even alarming without even wanting or caring to find out The Good Soldier Švejk is a classic work of European literature one of the most popular and beloved novels ever published Memorable scenes and uotable lines as the one cited above pop out on every single one of its 750 pages Penguin Classics is to be commended for Cecil Parrott's lively English translation and also including a Guide to the Pronunciation of Czech Names maps Josef Lada illustrations and the translator's extensive Introduction providing biographical notes on the author as well as social cultural historical and literary context for the novelThe first chapter starts off with a bang the shooting of the Archduke Ferdinand nephew of the Austrian Emperor and his wife at Sarajevo by a Serbian nationalist Not exactly history's peaches and cream event as this bang bang bang propelled Europe into the First World War What follows gives a reader a real bang for their buck mostly of the comic variety taking the form of what I term a Švejk moment Here are a four suchŠvejk moments I count among my personal favorites1 Thrown in jail at police headuarters with a bunch of other anti government conspirators labeled as such for things like not reading the newspaper about the recent events in Sarajevo one shocked man cries out I'm innocent to which Švejk replies Jesus Christ was innocent too and all the same they crucified him No one anywhere has ever worried about a man being innocent Grin and bear it2 The government official in the pub who took Švejk off to prison promised to return with armed guards so he could arrest the pub owner since he let flies shit on a portrait of the Archduke he had hanging in his pub When the pub owner is thrown in the cell with Švejk and the other men he instantly becomes despondent Švejk shakes his hand cordially and says I knew that gentleman would keep his word when he said that they'd come for you Punctiliousness like that is a good thing 3 Švejk's landlady is beside herself with upset and wants sympathy She tells Švejk she is going to jump out the window to which the good soldier replies If you want to jump out the window go into the sitting room I've opened the window for you I wouldn't advise you to jump out of the kitchen window because you'd fall on the rose bed in the garden damage the bushes and have to pay for them From the window in the sitting room you'll fall beautifully on the pavement and if you're lucky you'll break your neck4 A policeman attempts to trap Švejk by buying dogs from the good soldier He keeps the dogs in a room without feeding them Some time thereafter upon entering the room the dogs tear him to pieces When Švejk hears of this most tragic event he says It gives me a headache to think how they are going to put all his pieces together when the day of the last judgement comesAs Cecil Parrott states in his Introduction and a number of other literary critics have noted a complete appreciation of Jaroslav Hašek’s novel forces us to fathom Švejk’s character which is complex and multifaceted and knotty Švejk is uick to acknowledge with pride that he received a military discharge for patent idiocy but as we come to learn the we read Švejk is nobody’s fool Although he freuently plays the dunce it becomes increasingly clear Švejk is keenly analytic knowledgeable well read and possesses a deep understanding of human natureWhat adds much depth to the tale is all in the contrast from beginning to end Švejk remains calm almost angelic; his eyes glow with innocence and tenderness his face radiates kindness gentleness and light; he speaks his words with such sincerity and honesty that those around him even the most hardheaded and militaristic are taken by his presence Meanwhile individuals in power like the police and military officers are characterized as selfish vulgar uncouth loutish even brutal sadistic and inhumaneReturning to the character of Švejk there still remains the issue to what degree is Švejk at one with his glowing innocence Or stated another way how much of what we read of Švejk's adventures is a matter of the good soldier playacting in order to manipulate those around him Readers are left to decide for themselves However one thing is clear a sweet kindly honest Švejk from the tip of his cap to the laces of his boots makes for a story both charming and heartwarming So here we are at the outbreak of the First World War and the countries of Europe are poised to swing into action Join the army muster up your courage and go to the front What adventure Be a hero off the pages of Walter Scott or Alexandre Dumas But as thousands of young men uickly discovered this is the twentieth century complete with machine guns poison gas flamethrowers mortars tanks and aircraft The chances of returning from the front in one piece physically and mentally are slim to none Yet inept governments and bumbling military leaders pressed on What was needed in such a world gone mad was an author capable of stinging satire creating a hero anti hero than hero What was needed was Jaroslav Hašek and his The Good Soldier Švejk Jaroslav Hašek 1883 1923 Great times call for great men was Hašek's ironic comment about Švejk
