Here are three contrasting works from Theodor Storm's middle period--the 1870s. The title story is an affectionate portrayal of the vanishing world of the marionette theatre with its guild-dominated society of the traveling puppeteers and their gypsy-like way of life.

Theodor Storm is a wonderful writer and the translation from the German to English is excellently done. In Germany students read Storm as a matter of course to improve their German. I am reading him because he writes so very clearly and well; a great sense of place, terrific use of folklore, and feel for the period early to mid-1800s. Terrific read and a great way to set you up for a session of our own writing.
Highly recommended.

3 novellas from the late 19th century, smoothly translated from the German. Excellent storytelling on display and all sorts of insights into attitudes and lifestyles in the Schleswig-Holstein area in the 18th and 19th centuries.

He was born in Husum ("the grey town by the grey sea") on the west coast of Schleswig of well-to-do parents. While still a student of law, he published a first volume of verse together with the brothers Tycho and Theodor Mommsen.
