The Confusions of Young Törless Robert Musil Mike Mitchell and Ritchie Robertson Oxford World's Classics. A new translation of Musil's powerful first novel, a disturbing account of an adolescent's emotional and psychological development. Young Törless (German: Der junge Törless) is a German film directed by Volker Schlöndorff, adapted from the autobiographical novel The Confusions of Young Törless by Robert deals with the violent, sadistic and homoerotic tendencies of a group of boys at an Austrian military academy at the beginning of the 20th ed by: Volker Schlöndorff.

― Robert Musil, quote from The Confusions of Young Törless “Eine große Erkenntnis vollzieht sich nur zur Hälfte im Lichtkreise des Gehirns, zur anderen Hälfte in dem dunklen Boden des Innersten, und sie ist vor allem ein Seelenzustand, auf dessen äußerster Spitze der Gedanke nur wie eine Blüte sitzt.”.   Like his contemporary and rival Sigmund Freud, Robert Musil boldly explored the dark, irrational undercurrents of humanity. The Confusions of Young Törless, published in while he was a student, uncovers the bullying, snobbery, and vicious homoerotic violence at an elite boys academy%().

Both the style and the scope of Musil's "big book" and his first, compact novel, "The Confusions of Young Törless" are very different. However, there are some commonalities, which retrospectively appear to be what are, for lack of a better term, "thematic obsessions" that characterize all of his books/5(11).   The Confusions of Young Törless, published in while he was a student, uncovers the bullying, snobbery, and vicious homoerotic violence at an elite boys academy. Unsparingly honest in its depiction of the author's tangled feelings about his mother, other women, and male bonding, it also vividly illustrates the crisis of a whole society /5(14).
