About The Book ADALBERT VON CHAMISSO Adalbert von Chamisso, a German lyric poet and scientist, was born on January 30, 1781, at the Castle of Boncourt, in the Champagne district of France. His parents emigrated in 1790, and in 1796 he became page to the Queen of Prussia. Two years afterwards he entered the army, which he left in 1806 to go to France, returning to Berlin in the following year. In 1810 he proceeded to France once more, and thence to Geneva, where he began his study of natural history. In 1815 he went with Otto von Kotzehue on a tour round the world, and on his return he settled in Berlin, having obtained a post in the Botanical Gardens. He wrote several important books on botany, topography, and ethnology, but became even more famous through his poems, ballads and romances. Peter Schlemihl, which was written in 1813 was published in the following year by Chamisso s friend Fouque, and achieved so great a success that it was translated into most languages. Chamisso died in Berlin on August 21, 1838. For more eBooks visit. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781494760540

Item Description: Garzanti Libri, 2007. Book Condition: New. Language: italian. Con grande talento Chamisso mette a fuoco un mondo in cui tutto si vende. E il povero Peter Schlemihl, in cerca di lavoro, si vende l'ombra al diavolo in cambio della ricchezza. Questa perdita dell'ombra è l'enigma che affascina chi legge: essa infatti, pur mantenendo un senso unitario, assume valenze sempre diverse. Il racconto trova la sua maggior forza vitale proprio in questa impossibilità di ridurre l'ombra a un suo significato preciso e immobile. Solo così essa conserva il suo valore, restando sempre veramente ombra, senza mai prendere "corpo"; e solo così l'immaginazione conserva il suo libero gioco e il racconto anima l'impreveduto e l'imprevedibile della poesia.

Theodor Storm: Immensee / Adelbert von Chamisso: Peter Schlemihl / Adalbert Stifter: Brigitta ---Theodor Storm (1817 - 88), poet and short-story writer, was born in Schleswig. As early as 1843 he had made himself known as a lyrical poet of the Romantic School, .but he wrote nothing that excels, in depth and tenderness of feeling, the charming story of Immensee; and taking his work all in all, Storm still ranks today as a master of the short story in Ger-man literature, rich though it is in this form of prose-fiction. (C. W. Bell) --- Peter Schlemihl, one of the pleasantest fancies of the days when Germany delighted in romance, was first published in 1814. The story is a poet s whim. Later writings of Chamisso (1781-1838) proved him to be one of the best lyric poets of the romance school of his time, entirely German in his tone of thought. (Henry Morley) --- Brigitta is usually regarded as an early example of German realism and written by probably the most accomplished Austrian prose writer of the nineteenth century, Adalbert Stifter (1805 - 68)., an illustration of Stifter s didactic con-cern with inner beauty in contrast to outward appearances. Stifter instructs us in more than inner beauty by demonstrating for us - perhaps unwittingly - that the preferred and positive values of the civilized world are always already informed by their antinomies. (Robert C. Holub in: Brigitta, or the Lesson of Realism). Bookseller Inventory # APC9781595690142
