Abstract:

"Probably the most famous German novel of the nineteenth century, Effi Briest can stand comparison with the great French and Russian works of the same age. Life Madam Bovary it is the story of a woman's adultery. Like Checkhov's plays and tales it reminds us that lingering pain is more common in life than melodrama and tragedy. But the story of Effi and the Chinaman's ghost, the forest and dunes that are its setting, the stern Prussian coe that makes the climax both terrible and absurd, are unique to Fontane and to German literature." -- From back cover.
