Hermann Broch, Edwin Muir (Translator). Hermann Broch is another of those early twentieth century Austro-Hungarian writers whose works I have discovered and devoured over the past decade. Though not as famous as Franz Kafka and Robert Musil, his work is right up there with them in its caliber and depth. His magnum opus was the stunning hallucinatory prose poem The Death of Virgil, but The Sleepwalkers-more in the vein of Musil's A Man Without Qualities-is another extraordinary work of art.
Willa Muir was born Wilhemina Anderson on the Shetland island of Unst in. .The Realist (Hermann Broch) trans Willa Muir and Edwin Muir (2000).
Willa Muir was born Wilhemina Anderson on the Shetland island of Unst in 1890. She was brought up in the small town of Montrose before moving to St. Andrews where, supported by a bursary, she was one of the first women to study for a University degree. In 1910 she graduated with a first class degree in Classics, revealing the powerful intellectual capacity for which she would later become famous. In the following years Muir became Vice-Principal of a teacher training college in London, but had to leave when, in 1919, she married the critic and poet, Edwin Muir.
Hermann Broch was a novelist, playwright, mathematician, and engineer. The Sleepwalkers (1932) Broch's prose trilogy describes three stages in the disintegration of modern European society. He was born in Vienna in 1886; he came to the United States in 1938. The Death of Virgil (1945), whom Broch considered a prototype of the modern individual, depicts the last eighteen hours of the life of Virgil. Broch's vision of the immanence of death will probably be regarded as his most original contribution to human experience.
