This early work by E. T. A. Hoffmann was originally published in 1814. Born in Königsberg, East Prussia in 1776, Hoffmann's family were all jurists, and during his youth he was initially encouraged to pursue a career in law. However, in his late teens Hoffman became increasingly interested in literature and philosophy, and spent much of his time reading German classicists and attending lectures by, amongst others, Immanuel Kant. Hoffman went on to produce a great range of both literary and musical works. Probably Hoffman's most well-known story, produced in 1816, is 'The Nutcracker and the Mouse King', due to the fact that – some seventy-six years later - it inspired Tchaikovsky's ballet The Nutcracker. In the same vein, his story 'The Sandman' provided both the inspiration for Léo Delibes's ballet Coppélia, and the basis for a highly influential essay by Sigmund Freud, called 'The Uncanny'. (Indeed, Freud referred to Hoffman as the "unrivalled master of the uncanny in literature.") Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900's and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions.

Finding her comfortable bourgeois existence as wife and mother predictable after eight years of marriage, Irene Wagner brings a little excitement into it by starting an affair with a rising young pianist. Her lover’s former mistress begins blackmailing her, threatening to give her secret away to her husband. Irene is soon in the grip of agonizing fear. Written in the spring of 1913, and first published in 1920, this novella is one of Stefan Zweig’s most powerful studies of a woman’s mind and emotions. La Paura (1954) the Roberto Rossellini film based on the Stefan Zweig novel Fear was the last of the extraordinary features in which Rossellini directed Ingrid Bergman, who was then his wife.

Based on a true story, this haunting tale centers on two brutal murders--the first of a local forester and the second of a Jewish moneylender near a beech tree--and the impact these events have on the life of Friedrich Mergel, a herdsman with a turbulent family history. A prototype of the murder mystery and a thoughtful examination of village society, this intriguing novella contains hints of the Gothic and the uncanny, including ominous thunderstorms, mysterious disappearances, eerie doppelgangers and grizzly discoveries, as well as a famously ambiguous climax.

Measuring the World marks the debut of a glorious new talent on the international scene. Young Austrian writer Daniel Kehlmann’s brilliant comic novel revolves around the meeting of two colossal geniuses of the Enlightenment. Late in the eighteenth century, two young Germans set out to measure the world. One of them, the aristocratic naturalist Alexander von Humboldt, negotiates jungles, voyages down the Orinoco River, tastes poisons, climbs the highest mountain known to man, counts head lice, and explores and measures every cave and hill he comes across. The other, the reclusive and barely socialized mathematician Carl Friedrich Gauss, can prove that space is curved without leaving his home. Terrifyingly famous and wildly eccentric, these two polar opposites finally meet in Berlin in 1828, and are immediately embroiled in the turmoil of the post-Napolean world. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Eichendorff's prose masterpiece - a picaresque account of the wanderings of a young man who leaves home after a row with his father, and who eventually finds love with the girl of his dreams - is one of the best-known classics of German literature.

Heinrich von Ofterdingen war ein sagenhafter (historisch bisher nicht belegbarer) S�nger des 13. Jahrhunderts. Der Name entstammt dem mittelhochdeutschen Epos S�ngerkrieg auf der Wartburg (mhd. Singerkriec �f Wartburc; entstanden um 1260). Der Name des unbekannten S�ngers inspirierte mehrere Dichter: So ist er namensgebend f�r das Romanfragment Heinrich von Ofterdingen von Novalis (eigentlich Friedrich von Hardenberg), entstanden im Laufe des Jahres 1800 und 1802 posthum von Friedrich Schlegel ver�ffentlicht und findet sich auch innerhalb der Novellensammlung Die Serapionsbr�der in der Novelle Der Krieg der S�nger von E. T. A. Hoffmann aus dem Jahre 1819.Der Heinrich von Ofterdingen ist in vielfacher Hinsicht als direkte Antwort auf Goethes Wilhelm Meister angelegt. Der Text sollte in der gleichen Aufmachung und bei dem gleichen Verlag (Unger, Berlin) erscheinen. Der Ofterdingen ist ein Zeugnis der Auseinandersetzung mit Goethes Text. Hardenbergs Bewertung des Wilhelm Meister wandelte sich im Laufe der Zeit sehr stark. Er hatte zun�chst das Erscheinen des Romans enthusiastisch begr��t und bewunderte die Poetik dieses Textes. Novalis war begeistert von Goethes Begabung, ganz fremde und uninteressante Gegenst�nde f�r die Poesie fruchtbar zu machen, und von der F�higkeit, Unbedeutendes durch Verkn�pfung auf die Ebene der Bedeutsamkeit zu heben. Die Kritik am Meister w�chst jedoch im Laufe der Zeit und Novalis bricht als erster Fr�hromantiker mit der Verehrung dieses Romans. Er verurteilt schlie�lich den Meister als undichterisch im h�chsten Grade und als ein Kunstprodukt, ein Werk des Verstandes und der �konomie, die �ber die Poesie siege. Goethe sei nur auf das Diesseitige und Pragmatische beschr�nkt und sein Roman sei geradezu prosaisch und modern. Novalis bem�ngelt, dass der Meister blo� von gew�hnlichen, menschlichen Dingen handele und dass die Natur und das Mystische v�llig fehlten. Somit bewertet er diesen Roman als poetisierte, b�rgerliche Geschichte.....

Hauptmann Bahnw rter Thiel

"Bahnwärter Thiel" (1988), by far the best story ever written by Gerhart Hauptmann, follows the principles of the Naturalist movement in its detailed study of the life and milieu of a humble and apparently unexceptional Prussian railwayman. Yet in its exploitation of symbolism, of techniques sometimes close to Impressionism, and in its subtle use of a changing narrative perspective, this Novelle goes beyond the essentially 'scientific' Naturalist approach: Hauptmann thus succeeds in exploring the complex interaction of suppressed social, psychological, physiological, and religious impulses far better than in any other work of this era. This new edition has been prepared with the changing needs of the today's learners and students of German in mind. The late S.D. Stirk's scholarly edition of 1952, which also included "Fasching", has seen sterling service, and we are greatly indebted to it. However, by concentrating on just one story, we have been able to offer more linguistic help in the notes and vocabulary, as well as devoting considerably more space in the introduction to detailed comments on characterisation and technique. References to other works and to other periods of Hauptmann's long career as a writer have been kept to a minimum.
