The Fateful Adventures of the Good Soldier Švejk
During the World War
by
Jaroslav Hašek

Jaroslav Hasek, author of the Good Soldier Svejk books.

The Good Soldier Švejk is a picaresque series of tales about an ordinary man's successful quest to survive, and to enjoy life in the face of the endless absurdities imposed on him by the effects of the complex institutions of modern society that magnify the rational and moral shortcomings of individuals in direct proportion to their positions in the hierarchies they are a part of.
