Peter Schlemihls wundersame geschichte by Adelbert von Chamisso ( Book )
695 editions published between 1800 and 2012 in 7 languages and held by 2,641 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Summary: Chamissos Novelle von Peter Schlemihl, der seinen Schatten dem Teufel verkauft, ist Weltliteratur. Ernst Ludwig Kirchner schuf 1915 sieben Farbholzschnitte zu dieser Novelle, in denen er seiner eigenen Zerrissenheit Ausdruck verlieh. In seinen Augen ist die Geschichte Schlemihls vor allem die Geschichte eines Gehetzten und Verdammten, der sich plötzlich seiner unendlichen Kleinheit und Machtlosigkeit bewusst wird und - weil er keine andere Wahl hat - in die Isolation geht

Peter Schlemiel : the man who sold his shadow by Adelbert von Chamisso ( Book )
3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Asked which book by another author he would most like to claim as his own work, Italo Calvino once said without hesitation, Adelbert von Chamisso's Peter Schlemiel. First published in 1814, this brilliant novel is not only a precursor of Poe, Kafka, and the magic realists - it is a timeless fable with a remarkably contemporary flavor. When a mysterious man in a gray coat asks Peter Schlemiel if he would sell him his shadow, that "lovely, lovely shadow" of his, he naturally thinks the man must be mad. But then the stranger makes him an offer he can't refuse. In return for his shadow, Schlemiel receives a neverending source of riches, and he is convinced he is on the road to happiness. Yet he finds that without a shadow he is rejected by society and unable to find the fulfillment of love. After a series of fantastic adventures, Peter Schlemiel realizes that he must discover a new way to give his life meaning if he is to go on in the world
