Description
Information
The Good Soldier Svejk is the classic novel of the 'little man' fighting officialdom and bureaucracy with the only weapons available to him - passive resistance, subterfuge, native wit and dumb insolence.Here, with all its blasphemy and bawdiness restored, is the immortal tale of the good-hearted, garrulous progress of the only loyal Czech in the Austrian army of 1914. Enmeshed in red tape, chivvied by police, doctors, clergy and officers, and ever-obliging, the good soldier (once discharged as an idiot) ploughs his irresistable furrow towards the crowning moment when he is captured by his own troops.
