Adalbert Stifter Indian Summer. Harry Zohn, Brandeis University) Frye has all the credentials for this major untertaking. I'm reading 'Der Nachsommer' ('The Indian Summer') for the second time and about sixteen years since my first reading

Adalbert Stifter Indian Summer. His translation flows verly pleasantly, conveying extremely well the measured pace of Stifter's style and the immediacy and intimacy of his descriptions. I'm reading 'Der Nachsommer' ('The Indian Summer') for the second time and about sixteen years since my first reading. My version is the original in German, so I can't form any judgment about this translation; it does disturb me slightly that the length of the English translation is given as 479 pages while my German text is 744 pages, and that's the novel only, no introduction, notes, etc.

Im Text kommt folgendes Zitat aus Adalbert Stifter: Der Nachsommer (1857) vor: „Ich wäre auch geneigt, die Rose für die schönste Blume zu halten. Die Kamelia steht ihr nahe, dieselbe ist zart, klar und rein, oft ist sie voll von Pracht, aber sie hat immer für uns etwas Fremdes, sie steht immer mit einem gewissen Anstande da: Das Weiche, ich möchte den Ausdruck gebrauchen, das Süße der Rose hat sie nicht. Ich übersetze gerade einen Text über Kamelien ins Englische.

Adalbert Stifter (German: ; 23 October 1805 – 28 January 1868) was an Austrian writer, poet, painter, and pedagogue. He was especially notable for the vivid natural landscapes depicted in his writing and has long been popular in the German-speaking world, while remaining almost entirely unknown to English readers. Born in Oberplan in Bohemia (now Horní Planá in the Czech Republic), he was the eldest son of Johann Stifter, a wealthy linen weaver, and his wife, Magdalena.

I bought this book for a college course my son was taking. I hope he sold it for a profit!

I'm reading 'Der Nachsommer' ('The Indian Summer') for the second time and about sixteen years since my first reading. My version is the original in German, so I can't form any judgment about this translation; it does disturb me slightly that the length of the English translation is given as 479 pages while my German text is 744 pages, and that's the novel only, no introduction, notes, etc. However my book has smaller pages than the edition listed on Amazon, about 4.5" x 7.5" with fairly small type. 'Der Nachsommer' is a remarkable novel, one of the most unusual I've ever read. It took me three tries before I truly engaged with it the first time I read it, and I was able to read it only after I realized that the story has no conflict to resolve; rather, the book is a single long essay on the right way to live and to bring up young people. The style is pre-eminently dull: no one laughs, no one quarrels, no one says anything brilliant or witty. Nothing dangerous or violent or shocking or even very exciting happens. And yet the book is fascinating. I must add that this time too, I had a hard time getting into the novel, but once I got past the first hundred pages or so, once again I was hooked. At a certain point the protagonist begins talking about how he protects the roses he lovingly cultivates by enticing birds that eat the caterpillars and other insects that feed on the roses' leaves and flowers. He describes how he established an open air bird sanctuary, supplying the birds with nesting sites appropriate to their habits, supplementing their insect diet as needed, providing them with fresh water, including giving the birds safe access to the water in containers used for irrigation. When the speaker begins to describe the myriad ways the different species of birds seek out all the different kinds of insect pests, the birds' ingenuity and perseverance and thoroughness in cleaning the garden, he becomes soberly lyrical. When he speaks of the cruelty of capturing wild songbirds, whether to cage them or, worse, to eat them, he is passionate. The book is beautiful and remarkable. There is a great deal here that organic gardeners will appreciate--this novel was published in 1857!--and all lovers of wildlife and nature. When I read it the first time I had not yet begun to develop what later became a passion for gardening, but the descriptions fascinated me all the same. I haven't read enough of 'Der Nachsommer' yet, this time, to be able to study it critically, but I think it would give plenty of food for thought to students of writing and literature. Some readers will adore this most remarkable novel; others would probably prefer a jail sentence to having to sit down and read it.
