Staff Reviews


As the Great War fitfully starts in the Austrian Empire, we are introduced to our hero, Svejk, who has been “finally certified by an army medical board as an imbecile.” Reconscripted despite his rheumatism (and certified imbecility), we follow Svejk in his progress through a loonybin, an army brig, a prolonged anabasis through Bohemia, and his incarceration as a Russian prisoner of war. Practically all of Svejk’s actions precipitate chaotic, if not downright catastrophic results; nevertheless, Svejk will endure because, while he may be an imbecile, he is most certainly nobody’s fool.
