Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Between 1799, when he left the Prussian Army, and his suicide in 1811, Kleist developed into a writer of unprecedented and tragically isolated genius. This collection of works from the last period of his life also includes "The Earthquake in Chile," "Michael Kohlhaas," "The Beggarwoman of Locarno," "St. Cecilia or The Power of Music," "The Betrothal in Santo Domingo," "The Foundling," and "The Duel."

Synopsis:

Brings together eight short stories by the intense 19th-century German author.
