FROM THE PUBLISHER - This translation of BRIGITTA by Edward Fitzgerald is the only one available in English. The neglect of Adalbert Stifter in England and America is perhaps not altogether surprising for it is only comparatively recently that the realization of the importance of Stifter's work has come to the German-speaking countries. He is now regarded as the greatest prose-writer that Austria has produced. Born in 1805 in southern Bohemia, Stifter's adult years were passed mainly in Vienna and in Linz. In his early days in Vienna Stiffer made his living as private tutor to Prince Metternich's son Richard, and it was not until he was thirty-three that he published his first story. From that time onwards he wrote steadily and successfully. The scene of BRIGITTA is the immense expanse of the Hungarian puszta. Against this background Stifter examines, with great delicacy and quite undramatically, a problem of love and of sexual relationships. The tale is beautifully told. The book is illustrated with eight drawings in two colours by Peter Emmerich. Previous Owner's Name Penned In Front, Otherwise Very Good. No Dustjacket. Bookseller Inventory # 11969
