Based on the author's own experiences at an Austrian military academy; this novel is an intense study of an adolescent's psychological development as he struggles to come to terms with his conflicting emotions. Through his relationship with two other boys Trless is led into sadistic and sexual encounters with a third pupil which both repel and fascinate him. It is a disturbing exploration of a non-moral outlook on life and of dictatorial attitudes that prefigure the outbreak of the First World War and the rise of fascism.

David Midgley, Times Literary Supplement This volume is an admirable addition to the Oxford World's Classics, with some good commentary inbetween on the quality of the translation and the helpfulness of both introduction and notes.

Winston's Dad A wonderful time to reissue this book.
