Walking with Carl Seelig and Robert Walser
We have mapped a selection from Carl Seelig's book Walks with Walser. An invitation to explore the region around Herisau on the screen as well as by walking!
The Robert Walser Archive has been collecting, indexing and publishing the author's work for more than 40 years. It has a unique collection of manuscripts, biographical materials and academic literature.
The Robert Walser Archive’s database lists primary as well as secondary literature about Robert Walser; it serves as both the Robert Walser’s bibliography and the Center’s main library catalogue. All resources can be consulted and studied in the reading room of the Robert Walser Centre.
The Robert Walser Centre pursues book projects and editions in cooperation with various publishers and partners at home and abroad. Some of these projects are freely accessible online.
About Robert Walser
Robert Walser (1878–1956) is considered one of the most mysterious writers of his time. Born in Biel, Switzerland, he left school at the age of fourteen to serve an apprenticeship at a local bank. Walser’s early poems were first published in 1898.
The Robert Walser Society has set itself the goal of promoting research into and dissemination of Robert Walser's work. It does this out of the conviction that Robert Walser is one of the most interesting German-language authors of the modern age.
The Bern edition, published by Suhrkamp-Verlag, is designed as a reading and study edition. It makes Walser's work accessible in a text-philologically impeccable form, and includes epilogues and commentaries based on the latest research.
Tilo Steireif: _Der Räuber_nach dem Roman von Robert Walser. 112 Aquarellzeichnungen.
In Auseinandersetzung mit Robert Walsers Räuber-Roman schuf Tilo Steireif 2012/13 in Berlin seine ebenso subtile wie spektakuläre Interpretation in 112 Aquarellzeichnungen.
The Robert Walser Centre and its Berner Ausgabe work closely together with the Kritische Robert Walser-Ausgabe compiled at the Universities of Basel and Zurich and are on friendly terms.
