This article analyzes what is the connection between Vienna: another fiction of Andreas Kurz, and the concept of essayism enunciated by the Austrian writer Robert Musil in his essays papers and his novel The Man without Qualities. Both Kurz and Musil consider that in essay writing combine by half and with the same rigor, biographical dimension and historical analysis, literature and historiography, therefore the attempt to establish an analogy between both scriptures that are inscribed becomes full of meaning, in addition, in the aged and luminous Austrian intellectual tradition. The finally purpose from this paper is add to lengthy reflection that exist about role of memory in the redefinition of intellectual and etic limits of essay writing.
