Incrédulamente pensé que solo valdría la pena "El hombre de la arena", que la traducción no le haría justicia a Hoffman. Me equivoqué y me da gusto. Se nota la gran influencia del universo creado en estos cuentos sobre autores de la talla de Poe. Las historias son emocionantes y de ritmo muy adecuado, los personajes contagian su pasión al lector hasta la última vuelta de tuerca. Todos los relatos de la antología tienen su giro y sabor especial. Lectura muy recomendada.

Si bien sólo dos cuentos de este volúmen son fantásticos (El Hombre de Arena y La Aventura de la noche de San Silvestre), la maestría de Hoffmann sobresale en cada línea que escribe. Su inventiva delineó las las bases del Romanticismo (que comenzó en Alemania) a partir de cuentos de excelente factura argumental y narrativa.

E.T.A. Hoffmann es probablemente no muy recordado a pesar de ser el originador del popular "El cascanueces y el rey de los ratones" mismo que se ha popularizado hasta la saciedad con el conocido ballet que cada navidad se presenta aquí y allá.

Se trata de un escritor bastante eficiente. Hasta ahora ninguno de los relatos que he leído de el me ha decepcionado por completo, aunque eso si, en algunos se muestra mucho mejor que en otros. Esta edición contiene:

-"Don Juan"
-"El hombre de la arena"
-"Las

Höhepunkt dieser Sammlung von Hoffmanns frühen Werken ist sicherlich "Der Goldene Topf" mit seiner zauberhaften Mischung aus romantischem Kunstmärchen, Humor, Sozialkritik und fantastischen Beschreibungen. Aber auch die anderen "Fantasiestücke" machen einfach Spass: Die "Kreisleriana", in denen Hoffmann - oftmals in Form beißender Satire - das Bildungsbürgertum und seine Begeisterung für Kunst und Dilletantismus und dümmlicher Verachtung des ernsthaften Künstlers vorführt ist gleichzeitig urkomi ...more

В соервеменном мире Гофман стал бы блогером. Писателем-блогером. У него есть хорошие художественные произведения, но здесь он собрал скорее эссе на тему искусства. Некоторые вещицы - Ombra Adorata, Мысли, Дон Жуан, Бетховен - просто рецензии на музыку и собственные идеи Гофмана о теме. Совершенный машинист - рассуждения о том, какими должны быть спецэффекты в театре. Кавалер Глюк и Берганца - художественные произведения, но с сильно тем же самым уклоном в просто мысли автора по поводу искусств.

Võimalik, et põhjuseks on raamatu vanus, ent muinasjutud jäid minust kaugeks. Oli fantastikat ja maagilisi olendeid, ent J. K. Rowlingu kirjelduses on nad elusamad. Oli ühiskonnakriitikat ja -irooniat, ent D. Adamsi kirjutatud paneb rohkem naerma.

Iseenesest oli lugemine ju tore, ent veidi tühjaks jäi.

Lahe ja muinasjutuline. Vanamoodne keelekasutus. Õpetlik ja lõbus.

The tales are very interesting and leave one with a very good feeling of having read a true human nature mistery.

Ernst Theodor Wilhelm Hoffmann, better known by his pen name E. T. A. Hoffmann (Ernst Theodor Amadeus Hoffmann), was a German Romantic author of fantasy and horror, a jurist, composer, music critic, draftsman and caricaturist. His stories form the basis of Jacques Offenbach's famous opera The Tales of Hoffmann, in which Hoffman appears (heavily fictionalized) as the hero. He is also the author of ...more
