Abstract:

"As a young writer, Fontane had immersed himself in English literature - particularly in Shakespeare and Walter Scott - and in the old Scottish ballads which he translated into German. As a guide Fontane has the ability to paint a land- or townscape with few words and to buttonhole the reader with a local story, or historical embellishment. With his travelling companion Bernhard von Lepel, he is convivial company, full of energy and as eager to describe his good-humoured contacts with people as to give impressions of buildings or scenery. In her introduction, Charlotte Jolles, doyenne of Fontane studies, explains his involvement with and love of Scotland and shows what deep traces it left in his own work. Beyond the Tweed is the fruit of an intense commitment to Scotland, its history and its culture, in which the country is fondly but shrewdly observed, with warmth and humanity."--Jacket.
