Peter Schlemihl book. Luckily, for us, Chamisso ignores the request and passes the story on to his author friends Julius This is an engaging novella from the time of German romanticism (pub. 1813). I wouldn’t want to read such a text all day and every day, but from time to time it can lift me up quite well, although this here story is not exactly edifying.

The fictive Peter Schlemihl addresses his story in a manuscript to his friend Chamisso, whom he addresses five times as Chamisso and twice as Adelbert in the course of the narrative. The story also refers explicitly to Fouqué’s novel Der Zauberring (The Magic Ring) of 1813, which Schlemihl dreams is lying on Chamisso’s desk along with the works of Haller, Humboldt, Linné and a volume of Goethe

Unsuccessful in his ambitions, the young and naive Peter Schlemihl seals a pact with the Devil in which he exchanges his shadow for the purse of Fortunatus, thereby gaining everlasting riches. But when he is ridiculed, persecuted and hated for being different from other men, he realizes that poverty is easier to bear than the loss of his peace of mind. Originally written as a cautionary tale for the children of Chamisso's patron, "Peter Schlemihl" was hailed by contemporaries as a masterpiece with a wide adult appeal, and continues to capture imaginations today.

I first read this book when I was a teenager in the 1940's. I enjoyed it then - and so did I now. But warning: the story was written more than two hundred years ago in a style that may be annoying to the current generation. You need patience - and understanding of a different age.

The story of Peter Schlemiehl is a story close to my heart.
Peter Schlemiehl, young, innocent, poor, but with ambitions to better himself, makes a pact with a tall person, whom we as readers recognize as the Devil. He receives from this tall man a purse full of gold, and not only is it full of gold, but it will never, ever be empty.
All he has to give in return for this valuable purse, is his shadow.
The story is an account of this bargain with the Devil, and the consequences, Peter comes to suffer, living a life without his shadow.
The story is basically about the evil influence money has on the integrity, and innocence, of a person. About the values in life which cannot be bought for money. When Peter sold his shadow, he immediately lost his standing in society, in spite of his huge wealth, people point their fingers at him, and he has no succes with the opposite sex! He has to limit himself to go out only after dark, where nobody will notice that he does not cast a shadow.
The money has made Peter all stressed up, and nowhere to go! His life is confined to darkness, and dark places, and he is constantly worried and suspicious of people who might plan to steal his purse. See for yourself, the romantic decision Peter makes to rebuild his life.

Peter Schlemihl is an 1814 novella written by Adelbert von Chamisso. Though born in France, von Chamisso lived most of his life in Germany after his aristocratic parents fled the French Revolution. Peter Schlemihl has been translated into English under a variety of titles, such as The Man Who Sold His Shadow or The Marvellous History of the Shadowless Man, either of which gives a more precise indication of the story’s contents. The narrative opens with Peter disembarking a boat in an unnamed country. He arrives with letter of recommendation in hand at the home of a Mr. Jones, who at that moment happens to be entertaining some guests. Among them is a mysterious thin man in a gray coat who offers to buy Peter’s shadow in exchange for a bottomless purse that dispenses gold coins. Peter jumps at this seemingly fortuitous offer and accepts the bargain. The stranger takes possession of his shadow, folds it up, tucks it in his coat, and departs. Peter soon finds however that life without a shadow isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, despite his limitless wealth. Everywhere he goes he is persecuted and reviled for his lack of umbrage.

Traditional in its prose but surprisingly modernist in its unconventionality, Peter Schlemihl resembles what Balzac might have come up with if he wrote scripts for The Twilight Zone. The shadow is obviously a metaphor for something, but what exactly that may be remains unclear. Von Chamisso clarifies later in the book that it doesn’t represent Peter’s soul. Could the sold shadow be analogous to lost innocence, lost youth, lost integrity? The author never gives you enough clues to grab and hold onto in order to decipher the puzzle. Peter’s shame at his shadowlessness, and the lengths he goes to in an effort to conceal it, make one consider the skeletons we all have in our closets, those shortcomings that we do our best to conceal from others as we interact with the world.

The story rambles on in unexpected directions, as if von Chamisso just improvised the whole thing. It goes on far too long, unfortunately. The first chapter is fascinating, but by the time you get to the end the story has become tiresome. The final chapter is truly bizarre, baring little relation to what came before. It calls to mind some of the more absurd writings of Voltaire, like Candide or Micromegas. Absurdity is welcome in literature, of course, but there has to be some kind of consistency to that absurdity—some method to the madness—otherwise it just seems pointless. The idea of a man selling his shadow is an indelible image, but it’s not enough to make the reading of this story worthwhile. Von Chamisso’s vision was incredibly innovative for a writer of two centuries past, but sometimes innovation just isn’t enough.
