(From the publisher):
This fourth selection of Denis Jacksonís definitive translations of the novellas of Theodor Storm includes two, The Last Farmstead
and the ghost-story cycle By the Fireside
, that appear in English for the first time. The title-story depicts a reversal of fortune in a previously prosperous burgher family in the aftermath of the Napoleonic Wars. St Georgeís Almshouse
, a poignant love-story told from complementary viewpoints, is a fine example of the authorís narrative virtuosity.
