It is a story of wrongful condemnation for murder, and of its consequences. Leonhart Maurizius, an art historian, is found guilty of murdering his wife and condemned to death, but the sentence is commuted to life imprisonment. The public prosecutor in the case, Freiherr von Andergast, has a son Etzel, who, at the instigation of the condemned man's father, devotes himself to ascertaining the truth. He succeeds, after considerable research, in proving that Leonhart's sister-in-law, Anna Jahn, was the guilty person. Leonhart, who has served eighteen years, is pardoned. The prosecutor resigns and loses his reason. Leonhart can make nothing of his newly granted freedom and takes his own life. The sequel is Etzel Andergast

The dark pilgrimage by Jakob Wassermann( Book )

93 editions published between 1897 and 2016 in 7 languages and held by 681 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Escritor alemán. Hijo de un pequeño comerciante, comenzó como dependiente de una librería y trabajó luego como redactor de la revista Simplicissimus. A partir de 1893 consiguió dedicarse exclusivamente a escribir. Gozó de gran popularidad, en particular en la década de 1920 (T. Mann lo calificó de "estrella mundial de la novela"), pero desde 1933 sus libros fueron rechazados en Alemania por su condición de judío. Aunque vivió la mayor parte de su vida en Austria, primero en Viena y más tarde en Altaussee, sus novelas están situadas siempre en Alemania, y describen paisajes, gentes y destinos alemanes.En una época en que ya se comenzaba a hablar de la crisis del género, Wassermann fue un novelista clásico, y sus tramas siempre se construyeron sobre historias sólidas y palpitantes. Debido a las dificultades económicas infantiles y a su situación personal, que le hizo padecer muchas persecuciones, uno de sus temas principales fue siempre la justicia y la lucha contra "la incercia del corazón". De entre sus 44 novelas, recopilaciones de relatos y cinco obras teatrales hay que mencionar su inicial Los judíos de Zirndorf (1897), que relata los problemas mesiánicos de la comunidad judía de Zirndorf

1923 als Teil der Sammlung "Der Geist der Pilger" erschienen, ist die Geschichte "Das Gold von Caxamalca" eine fast authentische Episode aus der Zeit der Eroberung des südamerikanischen Kontinents durch die spanischen Konquistadoren. In einem Kloster Limas schreibt der Mönch Domingo de Soira Luce die Ereignisse auf, die zur Hinrichtung des Inkas Atahuallpa führten. Wassermann konfrontiert die Welt des edlen Wilden mit den rauen Sitten und Gebräuchen der Eroberer. Im Mittelpunkt steht das Gold, für Atahuallpa ein "nichtiges Ding" für die Spanier ein Gott oder der "Traum der Träume". Die Inkas schaffen enorme Goldschätze zur Rettung Atahuallpas herbei, der aber wird vom Dolmetscher Felipillo denunziert und schließlich wegen Verrats zum Tod auf dem Scheiterhaufen verurteilt

Sylvester von Erfft führt mit seiner Frau Agathe eine harmonische Ehe. Man schwelgt nicht in Reichtum, ist aber gut abgesichert, unternimmt Reisen, genießt das Leben. Doch eines Tages, scheinbar aus dem Nichts heraus, wandelt sich seine Gemütslage drastisch, sein sonst so lebensbejahender Aktionismus schlägt um in eine schwere Lethargie, so hat es den Anschein. Agathe entschließt, für eine Weile zu ihrer Schwester zu fahren, um Abstand zu gewinnen - als sie zurückkehrt, ist ihr Mann verschwunden. Kurze Zeit später erreicht sie ein Brief, in dem er ihr unumwunden von seinen jüngsten Erlebnissen berichtet, auch von einer jungen Frau, zu der er sich hingezogen fühlt, ist die Rede. Reine Provokation? Ist er krank? Verrückt? Oder stecken die beiden in einer Krise, die sich schon lange zuvor angekündigt hat? Agathe macht sich auf den Weg, um Sylvester zu finden
