Fifth and last of Denis Jackson's definitive selections of the novellas of one of the greatest German writers of the 19th century, author of Der Schimmelreiter (The Dykemaster), Immensee, etc Contains the first and only English translation of Ein Doppelganger, a moving exploration of the problem of the rehabilitation of ex-prisoners 'This fine edition I am sure will significantly increase Storm's popularity. Translations of the high standard you have achieved are more than ever in demand.' - Mary Garland, editor of The Oxford Companion to German Literature (3rd edition), letter to the translator regarding his translation The Dykemaster The Doppelganger is the story of a reformed ex-prisoner who finds himself an unemployable outcast on release from prison, his crime having already been a consequence of harsh economic conditions in mid-19-century north Germany. The stark events of his life, pieced together after his death within an outer narrative, are in sharp contrast to his daughter's tender childhood memories of him. This subtly told tragic story has much to say to the present day.Aquis submersus, one of Storm's most celebrated tales, is a narrative tour de force linking the past with the present. The meaning of a mysterious inscription on the portrait of a dead child is gradually unravelled in the course of a story that is both a powerful critique of the landowning Junker class and a tragedy of passion.

Paul the Puppeteer (Paperback): Theodor Storm Paul the Puppeteer (Paperback)
Theodor Storm; Translated by Denis Jackson
R269 Discovery Miles 2 690 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Here are three contrasting works from Theodor Storm's middle period--the 1870s. The title story is an affectionate portrayal of the vanishing world of the marionette theatre with its guild-dominated society of the traveling puppeteers and their gypsy-like way of life. "The Village on the Moor" is seen through an investigating lawyer's eyes, and is the case of a mysterious death out on the moor, the chief suspect being a girl of sinister aura with whom the young deceased was in love. Both these stories are translated into English for the first time. One of Storm's most moving stories, "Renate," records the memories of an eighteenth-century Lutheran pastor and his love for a farmer's daughter who is persecuted by the local community for alleged witchcraft. Denis Jackson also translated Storm's The Dykemaster.

A romantic tale of an old man reminiscing about his youth and unfulfilled love, 'Immensee' is considered by many to be Theodor Storm's most accomplished work, evoking a reality which is veiled and haunted by dreams and illusion. This volume, which also contains 'Viola Tricolor', the delightful story of a woman coming to terms with her stepdaughter, and 'Curator Carsten', a sombre account of a young man falling into a life of debauchery, provides a vivid introduction to one of the finest storytellers of German Romanticism.

This novella, first published in 1888, was the final and arguably the finest work by German writer, Theodor Storm. Combining both realism and the supernatural, The Rider on the White Horse is full of symbolism and superstition. Here, humankind must battle against the forces of nature, a struggle embodied by the image of the phantom-like rider and his white horse galloping into the waves. This is a tale of a man from the North German fenlands who tries to tame not only the natural world but also the reactionary ideas and ingrained superstitions of his neighbors. Storm uses narrative framing, stories within stories, to move across time and conventional boundaries to explore different aspects of how we see ourselves, each other, and our relationship with our environment. The main narrative focuses on Hauke Haien, his dramatic encounters with the sea and his obsessive mission to protect the low-lying land, a quest that leads him into the realm of science and mathematics. There is a sense that superstition is under scrutiny by reason, yet an underlying uneasiness remains in the imagery that permeates the text: the incessant screaming and shrieking of the gulls, the roar of the waves, the constant reference to eyes with the "burning eyes" of the white-horse rider, and the inquiring gaze of the old schoolteacher. Nature is portrayed as wild, unpredictable, and disconcerting, while the community is always mindful of its destructive powers.
