Old Masters (1985) is Thomas Bernhard's devilishly funny story about the friendship between two old men. For over thirty years Reger, a music critic, has sat on the same bench in front of a Tintoretto painting in a Viennese museum, thinking and railing against contemporary society, his fellow men, artists, the weather, even the state of public lavatories.

This is a period of geopolitical turmoil, with the Muslim Turkish assault on Europe causing distress within the Christian World. Yet it is also a time of courtly opulence and Shakespearean drama, with murders and vendettas, wars and crusades, i
