'I loathe what I did, but what I loathe even more is your virtue.' Seventeen-year-old Effi Briest is steered by her parents into marriage with an ambitious bureaucrat, twenty years her senior. He takes her from her home to a remote provincial town on the Baltic coast of Prussia where she is isolated, bored, and prey to superstitious fears. She drifts into a half-hearted affair with a manipulative, womanizing officer, which ends when her husband is transferred to Berlin. Years later, events are triggered that will have profound consequences for Effi and her family. Effi Briest (1895) is recognized as one of the masterpieces by Theodor Fontane, Germany's premier realist novelist, and one of the great novels of marital relations together with Madame Bovary and Anna Karenina. It presents life among the conservative Prussian aristocracy with irony and gentle humour, and opposes the rigid and antiquated morality of the time by treating its heroine with sympathy and keen psychological insight.

Opposites attract, and Helmut Holk and Christine Arne, the appealing married couple at the center of this engrossing book by one of Germany’s greatest novelists, could not be less alike. Christine is a serious soul from a devout background. She is brooding and beautiful and devoted to her husband and their two children. Helmut is lighthearted and pleasure-loving and largely content to defer to his wife’s deeper feelings and better wisdom. They live in a beautiful large house overlooking the sea, which they built themselves, and have been happily married for twenty-three years—only of late a certain tension has crept into their dealings with each other. Little jokes, casual endearments, long-meditated plans: they all hit a raw nerve. How a couple can slowly drift apart, until one day they find themselves in a situation which is nothing they ever wished for but from which they cannot go back, is at the heart of this timeless story of everyday life. Theodor Fontane’s great gift is to tell the story effectively in his characters’ own words, listening to how they talk and fail to talk to each other, watching them turn away from their own true feelings as much as from each other. Irretrievable is a nuanced, affectionate, enormously sophisticated, and profoundly humane reckoning with the blindness of love.

"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.

A small German town edges into fascism in a novel by the bestselling author of Alone in Berlin: “So terribly genuine, it is frightening.”—Kurt Tucholsky It is the summer of 1929, and in Altholm, Germany, a storm is brewing—a local political resistance that could be valuable to Max Tredup. Max, a shabby, unprincipled reporter working for the Chronicle, Altholm’s failing newspaper, is leading a precarious and hungry existence when he takes some potentially damning photographs. Sold to the right bidder, he could make a fortune. While he contemplates his next move, the town is buzzing. Farmers are plotting their revenge against greedy officials, a mysterious traveling salesman is stirring up trouble, and the Nazi party grows stronger as the Communists fight them in the street. And all the while, Altholm’s oppressive mayor, who’s doing everything in his power to seek the easy life, is involved in a conspiracy of schemes of his own. With the town rapidly slipping into chaos, tensions mount between workers and bosses, town and country, and left and right. As alliances are broken, bribes are taken, and plots are hatched, a shocking act of violence is all it takes to push Altholm over the edge. From the brilliant mind of one of Germany’s most celebrated writers, A Small Circus “gives us front-row seats to Germany's decade-long quest for a sacrificial scapegoat that culminated in the Nazi takeover” (The Independent).
