Jaroslav Hasek is best known for his satirical masterpiece The Good Soldier Svejk That book has been described by British writer George Monbiot as Perhaps the funniest novel ever written Although his life was short and chaotic Hasek did however write more as this volume tellingly reveals In his preface Sir Cecil Parrott translator and biographer of Hasek crisply defines its purpose All the world has heard of Svejk but few are familiar with the countless other characters Hasek created in his stories and sketches which together with his feuilletons and articles are though to number some twelve hundred The best of these deserve to be made available to the Western public and are included in this volume The range is wide There is a selection from his Bugulma stories Hasek as Bolshevik and Red Commissar some early Svejk stories reminiscences of Hasek s apprenticeship days in a pharmacy and the hilariously funny speeches made by Hasek when promoting his short lived political Party of Moderate Progress within the bounds of the Law, No description available, In i The Good Soldier vejk i celebrated Czech writer and anarchist Jaroslav Ha ek combined dazzling wordplay and piercing satire in a hilariously subversive depiction of the futility of war br br Good natured and garrulous vejk 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 br br Cecil Parrott s vibrant translation conveys the brilliant irreverence of this classic about a hapless Everyman caught in a vast bureaucratic machine, Jaroslav Hasek was a humorist and satirist of rare order long before he wrote his celebrated novel The Good Soldier Schweik This selection of pre stories of Prague life most were translated into English for the first time in this collection revels in the twisted logic of politics and bureaucracy in the Czech capital which was also an Austrian provincial city
