Overview

«Un personaje tan singular como Walser no hubiera podido inventarlo nadie», escribió Elias Canetti. Robert Walser nació en Biel, Suiza, en 1878. A los catorce años abandonó sus estudios para trabajar de botones. Se preparó tenaz y humildemente para ejercer varios oficios ;actor, librero, secretario, archivero, incluso asistiría a un curso para emplearse de mayordomo en un castillo de Silesia;, pero todos fueron un fracaso. Entre 1904 y 1925 publicó toda su obra poética y novelística, que entusiasmó a la crítica y a los escritores de lengua alemana más importantes de su tiempo; lo que no impidió siquiera un alivio en la absoluta precariedad en la que vivía. A partir de 1925, los síntomas nerviosos, de origen hereditario, se intensificaron hasta tal punto que, en 1933, ingresó voluntariamente en el manicomio, del que ya no saldría hasta el día de Navidad de 1956, cuando unos niños lo encontraron muerto en la nieve. El ayudante cuenta, con una ironía extraordinaria, la historia del ingeniero Tobler, que se separó de su mujer y sus cuatro hijos después de su ruina, a la que asistirá paso a paso, y de la manera más sumisa, su fiel empleado Joseph. Walser narra una experiencia autobiográfica, apenas alterada, después de trabajar seis meses en la casa del ingeniero Dubler. La novela se publicaría en 1908, siendo acogida por la crítica con el mayor de los entusiasmos.
