Thomas Mann found the nineteenth-century Austrian writer Adalbert Stifter 'one of the most strangely gripping narrators in world literature.' Yet he is little known to the English-speaking world. He is far ahead of his time in portraying the diseased subconscious and the influence that the earliest years have on a person's development. These masterly new translations constitute the most substantial selection of Stifter's richly symbolic narratives to appear in English.
The ugly heroine of the love-story Brigitta makes a barren corner of the Hungarian plains bloom.
