Volumes can be written on Robert Musil...his readers I'm sure are keenly aware of that, but this derelict masterpiece goes overlooked, and likely gathers dust in whichever orphan library in which it happens to be a denizen, undeservedly. Musil writes five disparate short stories, each one focusing and penetrating deep into the character which results in an almost palpable image of human psychology and interrelations. This work tests the elasticity of literature in order to discover how far written language may be employed in order to elucidate the ineffable. Much like Joyce's Dubliners, this collection is a bastion of modern literature: it provides masterfully wrought scenarios, pregnant with substance...The only element which remains for the consummation of the work is reader investment and application. If so done, Five Women spews jewels.
