Theodor Fontane: Effi Briest (angol) Theodor Fontane: Effi Briest (angol)

In 1919 Thomas Mann hailed Effi Briest (1895) as one of „the six most significant novels ever written.” Set in Bismarck's Germany, Fontane's luminous tale of a socially suitable but emotionally disastrous match between the enchanting seventeen-year-old Effi and an austere, workaholic civil servant twice her age, is at once touching and unsettling. Fontane's taut, ironic narrative depicts a world where sexuality and the enjoyment of life are stifled by narrow-mindedness and circumstance. Considered by many to be the pinnacle of the nineteenth-century German novel, Effi Briest is a tale of adultery that ranks with Madame Bovary and Anna Karenina and brilliantly demonstrates the truth of the author's comment and „women's stories are generally far more interesting.”
