More About E. T. A. Hoffmann, Roberto Innocenti, John C. Olin, Luis Delgado, Asher Vaturi, Barbara Vos, Fiona Seeley & Kevin Nowlan

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! E. T. A. Hoffmann (1776-1822) was one of the best known and most influential authors of his time. Phantasiestucke, his earliest collection of tales, appeared in 1814. This was followed three years later by Nachstucke and then in 1819-21 by Die Serapoins bruder. Among his longer works is his second and final novel, Die Lebensansichten des Katers Murr (The Life and Opinions of the Tomcat Murr), which represents the highpoint of his art. He exploited the grotesque and the bizarre in a manner unmatched by any other Romantic writer.
Joachim Neugroschel (translator; 1938-2011) won three PEN translation awards and the French-American Foundation Translation Prize. He translated Thomas Mann's Death in Venice and Sacher-Masoch's Venus in Furs, among other works, for Penguin Classics.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
the book behind the ballet  Feb 17, 2004
"The Nutcracker" ballet has been a Christmas season tradition for decades, but the book is less known. It is a blend of the dream world and reality, with Godfather Drosselmeier, who was "small and thin, with a sea of wrinkles on his face", manipulating these fantastic fantasies. The story centers around little Marie, and The Nutcracker who comes to life, to battle the Mouse King.
There is no Santa Claus on Christmas Eve in this tale, but it is the Christ Child who visits children "on his shining wings" and brings them presents.

E.T.A. Hoffmann (1776-1822), who also wrote tales that inspired the Offenbach opera "Tales of Hoffmann" (which later became a film with wonderful dancing by Moira Shearer), wrote The Nutcracker in 1816, and this translation from the German by Major Alex Ewing was first published in 1886.
Hoffmann was one of the first writers to use the horror/fantasy genre to such great effect, and was an influence on Edgar Allan Poe, among others.

Roberto Innocenti's illustrations are perhaps the prime reason to purchase this book. A self-taught artist, Innocenti has worked in animation, and his artistic magic has graced several books.
Innocenti's work is extraordinary, most of it in a somber mood, with exquisite detail and sense of perspective. The people in them look wan and a little sad, and his color palette is subdued, primarily shades of brown, with slate blue and dusty rose accents. His mice are marvelous, and the piece on page 65, of two mice being captured in a cage, with his relatives bemoaning their fate, is brilliant. This is when "Dame Mouselinks fled this scene of horror. Sorrow and rage filled her heart".

With thick semi-gloss pages, and a lovely layout with double-spaced print for easy reading, this is an interesting book for ballet enthusiasts, and fans of Innocenti's work, but might be too dark for young children, and those afflicted with musophobia (fear of mice) beware !
