Effi Briest , Penguin in English. The book is a large format, which is nice , but I can't really recommend it. One person found this helpful. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Starting several pages in "th" converts to "di": Theodor Fontane was a wonderful writer. He did this through what seems to be a simple story-telling style, but his use of language was highly crafted, and he never told his readers what to think.
The individuals essentially led their lives as they had to, because of who they were. Those events occur fleetingly, becoming part of the causality of later events. Much has been said in comparing Effie Briest to Flaubert's Madame Bovary; but Effie is a far more innocent person whose life is ruined by her own behavior, for which she accepts responsibility, while Emma Bovary is so narcissistic that one cannot empathize with her.
Even the characters who might have been treated like villains by other writers are presented without florid descriptions; rather, they, too, are just who they are. Until I bought this volume, I'd read Fontanne only in wonderful translations from the German, which left me wondering whether I'd gotten the full sense of his writing.
I am delighted that I now have further insight into the craft of this fine writer. Please note, I haven't finished the book itself.
The two stars is only related to typos on the Kindle edition. There are at least typos in the first chapter. It's quite obvious the book was simply scanned and transcribed by a computer, as specific pages have consistent typos 'th' is regularly mis-copied as 'di'. If you're looking for Effi Briest on Kindle, I suggest you avoid this version. In addition, the entirety of chapter 11 is missing. In its place is a paragraph summary of the actual events. This edition excels in many aspects: You will find not a 19th century novel but one from the 20th, written in advance.
Fontane doesn't show you directly the action but let you see everything in the mirror of the consequences, attitudes, and symbols. I dare say is cinematographic, also in advance. In Kurosawa's Seven Samurai, there is a very famous scene when the camera doesn't show the action but the nervous slide of one character's eyes observing it, and you feel the same emotion as if you were witnessing the fact.
You can find a lot of this in Effi Briest. Sometimes you feel that nothing is happening in the clean text but everything in the story.
That is subtlety, finesse, you call it.
Effi is one the more genuine characters I ever met. I am writing this, feeling her sorrow. If you love Mann, you can find the deep influence of Effi Briest in his Buddenbrook's saga.

Even a character with that name appears in Effi. Mann also hides to the reader the fact, the action, but the reader is able to have a very clear idea of what's happening. Tony have a lot of Effi's charming facets and Thomas is near to Geert. I strongly recommend to go directly to the novel, finish it and then read the introduction. This way you will feel the glee of deeper understanding without knowing in advance some facts of the plot, and the possible meaning of some symbols.
Helen Chambers knows pretty well her stuff. It is as perfect introduction as a dessert. The notes are really good but unfortunately didn't appear the links to them in the text, in my iPad, and I had to go to Wikipedia often. Two final words I could talk for hours about Effi Briest. First, this is a novel about human rights, women's rights. Second, very related, is a strong critic to Kantianism.
I used to love Kantian moral philosophy when I was around eighteen. Passing time I began to relate it with stiffness and mediocrity. This novel, the very end of it, notwithstanding its half farce tone, is a manifesto against the Kantian way to deal with life, which has deep consequences in social and political matters. We, human beings, are only amateurs, good sports at the best, in moral issues; we can't really believe we can decide as if we were professional rulers about absolutes values.
To rely on that, to judge and live relying on that, it's only possible, and even plausible, for those totally deprived of the feeling of love. But "that's too vast a subject. See all 55 reviews.
