Acknowledged as one of the landmark works of twentieth-century literary modernism. The Man Without Qualities is at once a prodigiously fecund novel of ideas and a pitch-perfect evocation of a lost world, the Austrian empire on the eve of the World War 1. 'The man without qualities' is Ulrich. Scientist, seducer and sceptic, he disdains the moral givens of the old Europe even as he yearns for something to replace them. In 1913, as Vienna's high society seethes with preparations for the Emperor's seventieth jublilee, Ulrich finds the thing he is looking for in the person of his sister Agathe, a woman as charming as she is amoral, as irresistable as she is appalling. Volume II of the Picador edition comprises the sections Into The Millennium and From The Posthumous Papers.
