Abstract

“The Robber” is a novel of the Swiss writer Robert Walser, written in his own unique “microscript”. The novel was discovered 12 years after his death and deciphered and published 4 years after then. This novel describes the situation of a writer who was marginalized by the society. The language, structure, content and materiality of this novel are different from the three novels Walser published in his lifetime. From the perspective of cultural anthropology, this article chooses the keyword “shame” and analyzes the protagonist and narrator in this novel, trying to interpret Walser’s aesthetics of shame.
