About this title:

Synopsis: I recommend Effi Briest...first class uplifting, shaming, beautiful to make you weep."" - Thomas Mann. Germany's best-loved classic novel, first published in 1895, is set in the heyday of Bismarck's Berlin and its effervescent heroine is one of the most unforgettable in literature. It is the story of an arranged marriage between the spirited seventeen-year-old daughter of a country gentleman and a high-flying civil servant and confidant of Bismarck, the considerably older Geert von Innstetten. In the remote Baltic town where the couple first live, Effi has an adulterous affair; when the Innstettens move to Berlin, the social code exacts its drastic price. ""Truly distinguished."" - Martin Seymour Smith, Scotland on Sunday. ""What a difference translation makes."" - Sunday Times.

About the Author: Theodor Fontane was born in Neuruppin in 1819, the son of a Gascon Huguenot father and a Cevennoise mother, and was brought up on the Baltic Sea coast of Prussia. He did not write his first novel until the age of fifty-six and consequently was able to bring to his fiction a lifetime's experience from many spheres. He was a pharmaceutical dispenser, a war correspondent in the Austrian Campaign of 1866 and in the Franco-Prussian War of 1870–71, and secretary to the Prussian Royal Academy of Arts. Fontane was the author of two war books, four volumes of travels in Mark Brandenburg, a slim volume of ballads and another of impressions. Vor dem Sturm (1878) is held to be a masterpiece in the genre of the historical novel. A theme of 'the woman's predicament' runs through his novels L'Adultera (1882), Cecile (1886), Wirrungen (1888), Frau Jenny Treibel (1893) and Effi Briest (1895). Poggenpuhls was published in 1896. He died in 1898.
