Provides a kind of handbook to this [German Romantic] movement...All the varieties are here: magical, musical, political and aesthetic...[An] excellent translation.--TLS. "These tales are hard to find in translation and this is a thoughtful grouping...one of the great strengths of these tales is their lack of inhibition: they risk gesture, idealism, passion and freely subvert the demands of naturalism. The power of the mind is compellingly dramatized."--Literary Review. "Will be of interest to students of Romanticism and philosophy in any language. General readers may also appreciate the fiction-writing skill of these 3 authors."--Academic Library Book Review. "Ably translated."--Small Press. "A nice compilation of representative German Romantic short fiction. It is eminently suitable for general readers and for undergraduate classroom use."--Choice.
