Description
Information
In the first volume of The Sleepwalkers his masterly trilogy, Broch explores the dilemma between the demands of the spirit and the flesh. His tormented, neurotic hero is Joachim von Pasenow, an officer in the Guards from an aristocratic family. When he unexpectedly finds himself the heir to a great estate, he must make a choice between the girl he loves, Ruzena, a chorus-girl, and the conventional, pallid woman of rank his parents - and consequently society - approve of. With its visionary depiction of humanity, flawed and unpredictable, Stephen Spender called The Sleepwalkers 'One of the few really great original and thoughtful works of this century.'
