This is the last volume of the The Fateful Adventures Of The Good Soldier vejk During The World War containing Book Three and Book Four Jaroslav Haek planned to write six books but passed away before completing Book Four That is why the book is considered unfinished Yet it can be argued the author under pressure from his deteriorating health indeed completed his thoughts and closed the books on the book that made him famous quite well, Jaroslav Ha ek is a Czech writer most famous for his wickedly funny widely read yet incomplete novel i The Good Soldier Schweik i a series of absurdist vignettes about a recalcitrant WWI soldier Ha ek in spite of a life of buffoonery and debauchery was remarkably prolific He wrote hundreds of short stories that all display both his extraordinary gift for satire and his profound distrust of authority i Behind the Lines i presents a series of nine short stories first published in the i Prague Tribune i and considered to be some of Ha ek s best Based on his experiences as a Red Commissar in the Russian Civil War and his return to Czechoslovakia i Behind the Lines i focuses on the Russian town of Bugulma taking aim with mordant wit at the absurdities of a revolution br br Providing important background and insight into i The Good Soldier Schweik i this collection by a writer some call the Bolshevik Mark Twain is nevertheless much more than a tool for understanding his better known novel it is a significant work in its own right A hidden gem remarkable for its modern ribald sense of humor i Behind the Lines i is an enjoyable fast paced anthology of great literary and historical value br br, br, In Book One of The Fateful Adventures of the Good Soldier vejk During the World War Jaroslav Ha ek wrote about the familiar world he lived in and wrote about his whole life before the onset of the War to End All Wars Book One introduces that world to those who are not familiar with it For those in the know it is a hilarious stroll down the familiar paths the pubs cops politics houses of ill repute eking out a living Even after vejk already joined the military life goes on as usual He and his cohorts might be in uniform but frequent the same pubs interact with the same people under similar circumstances The military is not much different than the police It s just another uniformed service diminishing one s options and pleasure only to be outwitted and largely ignored Book One sets the stage for what follows once vejk moves out with his outfit to go to the front As the text now continuing in Book Two progresses it becomes clear that The Good Soldier vejk is not a book meant for the light entertainment of the leisure class There have been quite a few livingers people making a living from interpreting what Ha ek meant by what he wrote who or what vejk is and arguing among themselves If the common working people find the text funny or even hilarious it is because as Don DeGrazia put it it is a bellowing barroom brawl of a book that will forever have everyday people doubled up with the painful laughter of recognition Such laughing people know vejk without having to analyze him or the text he lives in On the other hand if you want to take that route you will find a lot of material to confront at SvejkCentral com
