    The Nutcracker and the Mouse-King

    E. T. A. Hoffmann

    First published in German in 1816, “The Nutcracker and the Mouse-King” is the children’s fairy tale by Prussian composer and romantic author E. T. A. Hoffman that inspired Tchaikovsky’s famous ballet. Popularized by a French retelling by Alexandre Dumas in 1844 and immortalized in 1892 in the ballet that has become a part of the Christmas season tradition, Hoffman’s original tale is a magical story of imagination and love. It begins on Christmas Eve as the young Marie and her brother Fritz receive their Christmas gifts, including a beautiful nutcracker that immediately catches Marie’s interest. She begins to have fantastical dreams of her brave nutcracker leading all of her dolls in battle against the cruel and greedy Mouse-King and his army of mice. Her parents do not believe her dreams are real, but Marie is certain that the nutcracker is indeed her magical hero. She continues to dream of dramatic battles, the nutcracker’s eventual victory over the wicked Mouse-King, and a trip to the beautiful Land of Toys. Hoffman’s fairy tale of magic and devotion continues to captivate audiences and inspire adaptations around the world.

    Nachtstücke

    E. T. A. Hoffmann

    In seinem 1816/17 veröffentlichten zweibändigen Zyklus mit dem bezeichnenden Titel «Nachtstücke» versammelt E. T. A. Hoffmann acht Erzählungen, die das Unheimliche und Abgründige im Menschen thematisieren, die Kehrseite der Seele. Das bildkünstlerische Genre des Nachtstücks überträgt Hoffmann auf die Literatur und arbeitet wie ein Maler mit der Wirkung starker Kontraste: Licht und Dunkel, Vernunft und Wahnsinn, Realität und Phantasma liegen stets im Widerstreit.

    Los dobles

    E. T. A. Hoffmann

    Apunto de entrar a su habitación, se dio vuelta una vez más, su mirada recayó sobre Deodatus y, con el picaporte en la mano, ¡se quedó como petrificado! Sus lúgubres ojos irradiaban un fuego salvaje, al tiempo que una palidez cadavérica recubría su convulsivo y trémulo rostro. Unánimemente reconocido por la historia de la literatura como el gran precursor del relato fantástico moderno, E. T. A. Hoffmann ha gozado de una oscilante fortuna en el mundo de habla hispana, que ciertamente lo menciona mucho más de lo que lo lee. Pero su obra, a veces relegada al ámbito de la literatura infantil y juvenil, y a menudo publicada en forma de cuentos aislados y sin mayor cuidado filológico, es mucho más consecuente y extensa de lo que suele suponerse. E. T. A. Hoffmann (1776-1822), figura principal del romanticismo alemán, cultivó sobre todo la literatura fantástica y de horror. Fue, además, un notable compositor y crítico musical, jurista, y artista plástico. En sus cuentos crea una atmósfera de pesadilla alucinante, y aborda temas como el desdoblamiento de la personalidad, la locura, y el mundo de los sueños, que ejercieron gran influencia en escritores como Edgar Allan Poe, Guy de Maupassant y Fiodor Dostoievski.

    The Best Tales of Hoffmann

    E. T. A. Hoffmann

    E. T. A. Hoffmann (1776-1822) was perhaps one of the two or three greatest of all writers of fantasy. His wonderful tales, translated into many languages and adapted into numerous stage works, have delighted readers for a century and a half. They open our eyes to an extraordinary world of fantasy, poetry, and the supernatural. Remarkable characters come vividly to life. With exciting speed, Hoffmann moves from the firm ground of reality to ambiguity, mystery, and romance. His imaginativeness is unsurpassed, and his handling of allegory, symbolism, and mysticism is unusually skillful. These qualities make his tales some of the most stimulating and enjoyable in the world's literature. They can be read on many levels of enjoyment; as exciting fiction brilliantly told, as a fascinating statement of many of the major concerns of the Romantic era, and as a culmination of German Romantic literature. This collection contains ten of his best tales: «The Golden Flower Pot,» «Automata,» «A New Year's Eve Adventure,» «Nutcracker and the King of Mice,» «The Sand-Man,» «Rath Krespel,» «Tobias Martin, Master Cooper, and His Men,» «The Mines of Falun,» «Signor Formica,» and «The King's Betrothed.»
