Mit leichtem Gepäck und offenen unbestechlichen Augen wandert dieser moderne Taugenichts durch die Welt und am Ende wird nichts aus ihm als das Vergnügen des Lesers Franz KafkaRobert Walser gehört zu den Autoren der klassischen Moderne 'Geschwister Tanner' ist sein erster und zugleich sein unbeschwertester Roman Wie sein Verfasser ist der. The book starts out with a job interview which made me fear that this would be like The Assistant Part 2 another book about holding a job The familiar elements were there the long winded flowery speeches the expressions of extreme emotion the humorous toying with tone I loved that book mind you but with a different book I wanted a different experienceLuckily things moved uickly on and so did Simon the main character who can't keep a job or a residence for longer than a few weeks and wanders aimlessly throughout the book but in a most delicious manner The prose too wanders aimlessly never settling down on a singular purpose but searching revelling perhaps dilly dallying sometimes singing a tune in its little head or bursting out in a most unwarranted way then shrinking back slightly I found this to be Walser's most personal and touching novel so far with earnest passages that pondered a number of different topics art women misfortune ambition poverty city life etcHow reprehensible it is when those blessed with commodities insist on ignoring the poor Better to torment them force them into indentured servitude inflict compulsion and blows—this at least produces a connection fury and a pounding heart and these too constitute a form of relationship But to cower in elegant homes behind golden garden gates fearful lest the breath of warm humankind touch you unable to indulge in extravagances for fear they might be glimpsed by the embittered oppressed to oppress and yet lack the courage to show yourself as an oppressor even to fear the ones you are oppressing feeling ill at ease in your own wealth and begrudging others their ease to resort to disagreeable weapons that reuire neither true audacity nor manly courage to have money but only money without splendor That’s what things look like in our cities at present p 172Throughout the book Simon returns in mind andor body repeatedly to his siblings Klaus Kaspar Hedwig and Emil I forget if this is his name since he is mentioned only once The particular dynamic of the Tanner family is sketched out through these episodes where you get to know each one personally and you see how these interrelations affect them how each plays a strict role despite himherself and how Simon loves each one differently The mix of emotions is captured perfectly Despite the humor and the lightness of Walser's voice it is impressive how he can be simultaneously sad also but his sadness is one that's rarely spoken out loud and is less a solid emotion than a wistfulness you might catch in the eyes of a stranger departing on a long journey It's a uietness that moves below the wildlife of his prose And every once in a while it rises to the surface with surprising candorFor her children our mother had when she was still healthy something almost majestic about her that frightened and intimidated us; when she became ill in her mind we pitied her It was a crazy leap to make from fearful mystical awe to pity All that lay between—tenderness and trust—remained unknown to us And so it happened that our pity was strongly intermingled with an unspeakable regret over all we'd never felt which then caused us to pity her all the deeplyThe novel feels messy unfinished in parts but in the best of ways like a well loved pair of trousers colorful patches over all its holes Some sections seem to be left out entirely and you're left imagining what happened between the last episode and this one where surely Simon being slightly bipolar perhaps was feeling reticent perhaps a little down but you're just happy he's talking again now and you want him to keep talking Sebald's introduction to this volume is well worth the read also I love thinking about Sebald reading Walser these two complete outsiders in very different ways

Held des Buches Simon Tanner besessen von einem unbändigen Freiheitsdrang und betrachtet die Welt und die Menschen ganz unbefangen nicht mit einem 'verbildeten verstopften Kopf' Das bringt ihn in die kuriosesten Konflikte mit der Welt der Konventionen mit den Angepaßten den von Karriere und Konkurrenz Kompromittierten Durch seine Arglosig. A 350 page paperback book which should be bulkier in weight but the pages purposively made small makes it surprisingly light Despite no sense of any formal plot I read for long stretches growing tired the book becoming heavier Its weight alternated and at times defied external prodding'sSimon Tanner flits what appears as lightly through his life At times his manic enjoyment of nature is breathtaking It seemed to me there was an element of desperation in this lightness His flight was something away from not towards anything graspable Looked at it was his Walser's rush from the shadows of melancholia and whatever ills of the spirit that waited in the wings Walser never says this outright His method is one of absence The inner struggle the story in this novel that has no beginning or end is evoked in what is not said or shown The fearful shadowed part of his being is carved out by his distinctive reveries conscious attempts at acceptable appearance in others eyes the slippage of manic rhetoric his refusals to participate and succeed in life What is left is the heart of the novel its bleeding guts This for me was not lightness but the lightness was the grim heaviness of Simon's life The simplicity of the writing was the art of evocation It made something which was not there spellbinding The confines wrought out of the desperation to manage such a life left him with an unobstructed view of others the manners and strivings of society around him the herald of success if one's being and spirit were sacrificed to obey its rules It appeared absurd pathetic possibly silly but not comedic How was he to participate and why This left him with no commonality Isolated he had no community yet there were isolated moments where others saw a uest for connection in his eyes and a desire on their part to know him Any further details about these relevant situations will be spoilers and I am trying hard to invite rather than preclude anyone form reading this uniue and near flawless book I can splash all over the page what is known of Walser's life and make what sounds like smooth euations to the characters and situations inhabiting the book I might even sound smart to myself but this would be an affront to Walser and The TannersWhen I think of spiritual uests I tend towards thoughts of conventional organized religious practices This book has further confirmed for me that the reading of fine literature is well placed in this list The Tanners along with being a vast literary experience was also spiritual in its reading and afterwards Ineffable and enigmatic there was something pure woven from silken thread so fine as not to be seen always graspable there in front of me yet as I opened my hand it was gone
