Buying Options

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. Limestone tells of a repressed priest whose single erotic encounter determines his behaviour for the rest of his life. Abdias is the epic, Job-like story of a Jew raised in the North African desert. The hero of The Forest Path, another product of an alienated childhood, is a comic counterpart to the tragic Brigitta.
