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 with art. 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… (mer)

Second rate Bernhard, which is a bit like saying that the two-inch slice a foot from the end of the three-foot long salami is not as good as the two-inch slice six inches to the right. It's all salami. Still, I won't rush to re-read this one. ( )

I thought I was going to love this. Angry old man ranting about the world. When I started to become less amused I put it away and tried it in ever smaller doses. After all, one wouldn't watch Grumpy Old Men for 24 hours on the trot. But it just stopped pleasing me to the extent that eventually I did no more than flick through the last fifty pages or more, hoping I'd spot enlightenment were it to appear.

It doesn't.

The Art Historian
The art historians are the real wreckers of art. The art historians twaddle so long about art until they killed it with their twaddle.....The art historians' trade is the vilest trade there is...

The Teacher
...teachers are miserable creatures whose mission seems to consist of barricading life

Humanity
...is a gigantic state which, if we are honest, makes us sick each time we wake up.

Artists Rembrandt, Velasquez, Giotto, Dürer etc etc etc
Artists, the so-called great artists...are...the most unscrupulous of all people....Artists are the worst liars.

Writers
Same, same same.

Composers
Ditto, ditto, ditto

Heidegger
...a tasteless and readily digestible reader's pudding for the mediocre German mind. A rant that goes on for pages.

For the rest:

Atzbacher has been asked to meet his friend, the recently-widowed music critic Reger, in front of Tintoretto's White-bearded man in the Kunsthistorisches Museum at 11.30. He gets there early, spends 120 pages or so daydreaming, then they meet and Reger rants for most of the remaining 200 pages about what's wrong with the world, the arts, Austria and Vienna, in the best Bernhardian style. But then, two pages from the end of the book, Reger suddenly remembers the somewhat trivial reason why he asked Atzbacher to come.

Not a book to read if what you are after is a fast-moving action story, then, but you wouldn't expect that from Bernhard anyway. The ranting here is of the very finest quality, though, and the absurdity of the situation keeps us wanting to know more: why does this man who claims to hate all art, especially old art, choose to sit religiously in front of the Tintoretto three mornings a week for thirty years? Reger's diatribe is not only ludicrously and magnificently negative about everything (Vienna, it seems, has the dirtiest toilets, the most corrupt Catholic-National-Socialist judges, the most hypocritical politicians and the most mediocre writers and artists in Europe. Amongst other things...), but turns out to have been cunningly conceived to lead us into a very moving analysis of what it's like to lose the person who's been at the centre of your life for many years. Bernhard calls this book a comedy, but the distraught Reger's reaction to the death of his wife is obviously a fictional working-out of Bernhard's reaction to the death of his life-companion Hedwig Stavianicek in 1984. Only Bernhard could imagine a character who fights his way out of a near-terminal depression by reading Schopenhauer... ( )
