  • Carsten Curator; Der Herr Etatsrat

  • Theodor Storm , Greifenverlag zu Rudolstadt , 1985

Two of Storm’s darker novellas, which tell with typical intensity of life in late 19th century north Germany: Carsten Curator: Heinrich is a constant drain on his father Carsten; losing one job after another either by imprudence or dishonesty. Marriage looks as though it may turn his life around, but drink and fickleness ruin him. In a terrible storm he comes to ask Carsten to save him from bankruptcy. When this is refused, Heinrich, the worse for drink, launches out in a small boat into the rising floods, is carried away by the swift water and drowned. Der Herr Etatsrat: Dyke administrator Sternow is a clever but a completely amoral man who spends his evenings. His two children are utterly neglected. The son, Archimedes, is a good mathematician: he works, but also drinks, undermines his health and dies of a fever. Phia, the daughter, leads an utterly solitary life. Sternow’s scheming servant Käfer takes advantage of the lonely girl who dies in giving birth to a dead child.

  • Das Blaue Mädchen

  • Monika Feth , , 2001

"I mustn’t doubt", 17-year old Jana tells her diary, despite inwardly already having detached herself from the secretive sect she belongs to. Then she falls in love with Marlon, a boy from the village. But all contact with the outside world is strictly forbidden for the “Children of the Moon”, and Jana has to make a difficult choice between blind obedience, ignoring her feelings, or a perilous escape. German teen fiction at it’s best.
