        A unique and personal portrait of the beloved, legendary Swiss writer, finally in English. After a nervous breakdown in 1929, Robert Walser spent the remaining twenty-seven years of his life in mental asylums, closed off from the rest of the world in almost complete anonymity. While at the Herisau sanitarium, instead of writing, Walser practiced another favorite activity: walking. Starting in 1936, Carl Seelig, Walsers friend and literary executor, visited and accompanied him on these walks, meticulously recording their conversations. As they strolled, Walser told stories, shared his daily experiences of the sanatorium, and expressed his opinions about books and art, writing and history. When Seelig asked why he no longer wrote, Walser famously replied: Im not here to write, Im here to be mad. Filled with lively anecdotes and details, Walks with Walser offers the fullest available account of this wonderful writers inner and outer life.-- File Size: 5MB.

The only basis on which a writer can produce is freedom. When he meets with the inspector of taxes and attempts to convince him of a low rate, he must defend his walks against an accusation of an idle lifestyle. I have maintained this all my life.

Walks with Walser by Carl Seelig

I checked a few with Google Maps. It is brutal, the way everything is coveted and claimed nowadays. Since 1989, Berlin has yet again become a crucible of creativity, serving as both muse and sanctuary for a new generation of writers who regularly claim it as one of the most exciting cities in the world.

Yes, that sentence has no verb.

A Gentle and Angry Instrument: Robert Walser’s Short Fiction

Starting in 1936, Carl Seelig, Walser's friend and literary executor, visited and accompanied him on these walks, meticulously recording their conversations. There are two actors in the cast, David Barlow and Daniel Pettrow, both of whom have a lanky grace but no real dance training. I asked ND about the page count but have had no reply.

The opposite is true with Walser: I am a convert and will Walks with Walser read anything by him. After his 50th birthday, Robert Walser quit writing and contented himself with leading the life of the patient in a mental asylum. Bernofsky quotes a passage from The Tanners, published in 1907, in which the main character Simon cuts up paper into small strips and writes a long essay on them.

Seelig has nothing more to say about this coincidence.
