Effi Briest is a realist novel by Theodor Fontane. Published in book form in 1895, Effi Briest marks both a watershed and a climax in the poetic realism of literature. It can be thematically compared to other novels on 19th century marriage from a female perspective, such as Anna Karenina and Madame Bovary, which are also adultery tragedies

Translated from the German by. HUGH RORRISON and HELEN CHAMBERS. Introduction and notes by Helen Chambers. Published by the Penguin Group. When Effi Briest was published as a book in 1895, after being serialized in the Deutsche Rundschau, its d author experienced his first real literary success. Recognition had been slow in coming to the man who was later to be seen as the greatest German novelist between Goethe and Thomas Mann.

In Effi Briest does he elaborate anywhere in the book about the affair or does he just say it happens? . There's a quote by Fontane that seems helpful in this case

There's a quote by Fontane that seems helpful in this case. It's in German but on page 165 of this document, there's an excerpt from a letter that he apparently sent to a reader who stated that the events described in the book aren't proof enough for the affair. Daß ich die Sache im Unklaren gelassen hätte, kann ich nicht zugeben, die berühmten 'Schilderungen' (der Gipfel der ) vermeide ich freilich, aber Effis Brief an Crampas und die mitgetheilten 3 Zettel von Crampas an Effi, die sagen doch alles.

LibriVox recording of Effi Briest (abridged) by Theodor Fontane. Read in English by Margaret Espaillat. Effi Briest is a classic of Prussian Realism, relatively unknown in the English speaking world, but widely taught in German schools. This tragic tale tells the story of Effi, a young woman from an old and respectable family who, due to a sense of duty, marries Geert von Instetten, a much older Prussian official. The tragedy unfolds as a consequence of Instetten's strict following of his duties in society in response to his wife's indiscretions

Restorers have rescued 13 of Theodor Fontane's original manuscripts, which will be digitized and .

The news came ahead of the bicentennial of the 19th century German poet and novelist. His 1896 epic Effi Briest, a society novel about a 17-year-old girl being persuaded by her mother to marry a baron twice her age, was made into a film five times, including a 1968 version in the former communist East Germany.

Comments to eBook Effi Briest

I am disappointed in this edition of Efii Briest. The footnotes are quite helpful, but it is an exaggeration to call this a side by side edition as large portions of the text are not translated and so the German text sits on the left side and after a cursory summary of what happens (in just a fewlines) there is blank white space on the right for several pages. While translations of this in English are available, the whole point of this (I thought) is to give people who are working on learning German a comparison text to look at. (If this is a pedagogic decision then atleast if could be explained and defended in some kind of foreward, and then the blank pages could have notes about translation issues and aids to students, but instead the reader is simply confronted with empty pages. The book is a large format, (which is nice), but I can't really recommend it.

Theodor Fontane was a wonderful writer. In a subtle & disarming way, he addresses social, political, geographical, & personal issues. He wrote in a way that illuminated the cultural influences in the Brandenburger March & the rapid changes that were underway at his time. He did this through what seems to be a simple story-telling style, but his use of language was highly crafted, and he never told his readers what to think. The individuals essentially led their lives as they had to, because of who they were. Violence (in the form of a duel) & sexual content (an affair) are dealt with as expressions of the characters' emotions, but there are no graphic descriptions of the actual events. Those events occur fleetingly, becoming part of the causality of later events. Much has been said in comparing Effie Briest to Flaubert's Madame Bovary; but Effie is a far more innocent person whose life is ruined by her own behavior, for which she accepts responsibility, while Emma Bovary is so narcissistic that one cannot empathize with her. Even the characters who might have been treated like villains by other writers are presented without florid descriptions; rather, they, too, are just who they are.Until I bought this volume, I'd read Fontanne only in wonderful translations from the German, which left me wondering whether I'd gotten the full sense of his writing. I am delighted that I now have further insight into the craft of this fine writer.

How does one rate a classic that has already stood the test of time? It sheds an interesting light into the time in Germany before the World War I. I read the German edition because German is my first language. To somebody who speaks German not very competently, this will be difficult to read. Yet, at the same time, I cannot imagine how it could be translated and give justice to the brilliance of the language.

It's a German classic. The film is on YouTube, by the way. If you read German, it's quite worth buying.

The book arrived in perfect condition. I loved the story.

Fontane's examination of upper class Germany in the nineteenth century ultimately proves to be a scathing indictment of the "me first" mentality, but, and this is important: NOTHING HAPPENS. For about 200 pages Fontane wastes the readers' time by doing what could be done in about 30 pages: He shows how messed up the whole aristocratic scene was. Yeah, so they commit adultery an lie to each others face, you don't have to drag it out for so damn long. All in all, it makes me feel good to NOT be a rich upper class waster. And once the hammer drops (about 35 pages before the book ends) it still doesn't matter that Fontane has built these characters up: They are all the same exact characters in different bodies. I didn't feel anything for Effi or Instetten or anyone else except Roswitha, and her only because her dad chased her aroudn with a red-hot poker when she was a young girl.
