Tales of Hoffmann - ETA Hoffmann (trans. RJ Hollingdale)
Here's your chance to read 'The Sandman' - the famous tale that Freud analyses in his paper 'The Uncanny' (1919).
E.T.A. Hoffman's wildly original fictions are some of the most unusual examples of German Romanticism's dark passions, and the stories in Tales of Hoffman are selected and translated from the German with an introduction by R.J. Hollingdale.
This collection includes:
- Mademoiselle de Scudery
- The Sandman
- The Artushof
- Counsillor Krespel
- The Entail
- Doge and Dogaressa
- The Mines at Falun
- The Choosing of the Bride
- Includes a section on recommended further reading.
Recommended for: anyone interested in Hoffmann or German Romantic literature, horror story enthusiasts and scholars of the uncanny.
Translation from 1982, reprinted with further reading in 2004
