Old Masters: A Comedy
de Thomas Bernhard
translated by Ewald Osers


236 páginas


In this exuberantly satirical novel, the tutor Atzbacher has been summoned by his friend Reger to meet him in a Viennese museum. While Reger gazes at a Tintoretto portrait, Atzbacher—who fears Reger's plans to kill himself—gives us a portrait of the musicologist: his wisdom, his devotion to his wife, and his love-hate relationship withart. With characteristically acerbic wit, Bernhard exposes the pretensions and aspirations of humanity in a novel at once pessimistic and strangely exhilarating."Bernhard's . . . most enjoyable novel."—Robert Craft, New York Review of Books."Bernhard is one of the masters of contemporary European fiction."—George Steiner
