Seller Comments:

Very Good+ in Wraps: shows indications of very careful use: light wear to extremities; mild rubbing to wrapper covers; very faint creases near three of the corner tips; two faint creases at the back strip; binding square and secure; text clean. Remains close to 'As New'. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 8vo. 419pp. Edited, and with an Introduction by B. F. Bleiler. Translations by Thomas Carlyle, among others. Reprint Edition. Trade Paperback. Ernst Theodor Amadeus Hoffmann was born Ernst Theodor Wilhelm-he changed his name in honour of Mozart, and music was his first and possibly greatest love. He was a brilliant critic, a talented painter and caricaturist and, by all accounts, a very serviceable composer. All these elements-music, the pictorial sense, and the critic's sharp probing intelligence as displayed in the present review-feed into the stories, which perhaps is why they turned out to be his most lasting achievement. The ten in this collection are tales of the fantastic and include the four which provided the basis for Offenbach's opera. The style, like Mozart's, is bright, energetic and often comic; the substance, as with caricature, mixes the bizarre with the mundane in a fashion quite unlike that of anyone else you've ever read, even among Hoffmann's batallions of readers, followers, and imitators. The general effect is strikingly original, often disturbing, sometimes hilarious and, not infrequently, loony-not at all what one would expect from the last of the German Romantics. This volume also boasts several illustrations scrawled by the author, a helpful introduction by E F Bleiler, and Dover Books' usual robust production values. Like Lord Dunsany, Hoffmann has been prized more as an influence than a writer. His work has certainly had an incalculable influence on modern fantasy fiction, as well as the detective story, science fiction and the 19th-century "novel of ideas" (Dostoyevsky noted Hoffmann's psychological insight as an influence on his own). But his own best work falls into none of these categories, inventing them all in the service of the author's vision-the mark of a true original, and the best possible reason to read Hoffmann for himself.
