What a wonderful tale Written by a writer from a German Romantic period it captures the tone of the era beautifully I must admit that I wasn t familiar with this writer before despite my interest in this literary period Adelbert Von Chamisso was a French nobleman by birth but his family fled to Germany because of the French Revolution so he basically grew up in present day Germany Von Chamisso was shortly an officer in Prussian army a position he detested and compared it to selling one s soul for money Von Chamisso s difficult social position a French noble by birth writing his works in German when Prussia was at war with France didn t make it easy for him to gain acknowledgement as a writer However if this book is any judge Von Chamisso was a brilliant writer Peter Schlemihls wundersame Geschichte Peter Schlemihls wonderful historystory is his only prose work a fairy tale novella Originally written for children this Romantic novella is easy to read but it leaves enough food for the thought It s filled with wonderful subtle irony and humour A very rewarding readIt tells a story of young Peter who being a penniless fellow falls under temptation to sell his shadow to a man in a grey suit Despite the fact that the man gives him the creeps Peter can t resist him because what he offers is an endless source of gold However soon Peter regrets his decision bitterly People turn from Peter in horror the crowds abuse him in the streets and he is forced to run for his life and live a life of seclusion What is a man to do without his shadow Von Chamisso social critiue is masterfully accomplished in this novella He shows how materialistic our human society truly is It is than a simple children s story for sure Some say that Von Chamisso used shadow as a metaphor for one s country he was a man without a country but whether that is true or not what is certain is that he wrote an excellent tale Supposedly Von Chamisso himself valued his poems than this novella There is even a beautiful poem that precedes this novella an introduction of sorts However I was greatly impressed with this prose work as such I don t know why it doesn t get hype it has all the ualities of a genuine classic Here is a link to a free edition English translation by Gutenberghttpwwwgutenbergorgebooks21943

A novella really a long short story that is an old European fable The main character is a young man who sells his shadow to the Devil for a pouch that produces endless gold coins But he finds that without a shadow he is shunned an outcast Women run from him kids throw stones His only friend becomes a faithful servant Two women he loves reject him The devil reappears and wants to trade his shadow back to him for his soul This time the man rejects the offer He becomes a loner a naturalist collecting flora and fauna from around the world easily traveling around the globe in seven league boots that he bought We re told in the introduction that the author was a French aristocrat living in Germany after his family fled the guillotine The book was written in 1814 15 years after the French Revolution He intended the book as a fairy tale for children The story originates in Jewish culture the Yiddish word schlemiel means a bungler or someone incompetent The book jacket tells us that the story was a precursor to works like those of Poe and KafkaThe writing style is old fashioned of course what you would expect from 1814 A sample from when the main character reflects back on life Years later I finally made peace with myself I first had to learn to respect necessity what s done is done what s happened has happened the past is a fait acompli And then I learned to respect this necessity in and of itself as the wise and providential force that holds sway over the whole grand scheme of things the machinery in which we are but inconseuential cogs driven and driving through no will of our own what must be must be and what had to happen happened and all is governed by that providential force that I finally learned to honor as the master of my destiny and the destiny of those who crossed my path I m not sure why I read this book I stumbled across it at a library book sale It s a bit repetitive two women reject him because of his shadow basically the same story twice There are amazing coincidences that modern authors would not get a way with And the fable of selling your soul combined with the fable of the boots seems contrived But this may have been ground breaking originality back in 1814 It s interesting too that the author picked up the naturalist theme from his early scientific studies and went on to become a naturalist writing the story of his participation on a scientific voyage around the world 1815 1818 and gaining fame later in life for his botanical publications Top image Schlemihl s Stream from Shadow Drawings by Alun Ward at alunwardcoukSketch of the author from Wikipedia gotta love that hair

An Autobiographical FaustI came upon this intriguing novella scarcely than 100 pages in a handsome paperback by OneWorld Classics and could not help buying it I had admired the author Adalbert von Chamisso as the poet of Schumann s song cycle Frauenliebe und Leben I uickly saw that the translation by Leopold von Loewenstein Wertheim was clear and direct while preserving the period diction the novella was written in 1813 And indeed it is a clear product of German Romanticism the story of an unwise man schlemiel in Yiddish means an unlucky fool who sells his shadow to the Devil in return for bottomless wealth only to find he cannot go out by day or moonlight for fear of ridicule or physical harm When the Devil returns after the canonical period of a year and a day to offer to sell the shadow back the price he demands is Peter s soulIt is of course a variation of the Faust legend with the additional detail of the shadow And as in Goethe s Faust there is the same uneasy comradeship between Devil and victim and the same love for an innocent maiden here called Mina whose adoration brings the situation to its first crisis I was interested though to find how comparatively non moralistic the story was in the telling At first it seems like the kind of tall tale that might have been written by ETA Hoffmann The man in grey who buys Peter s shadow is not identified as the Devil until almost the end though of course we know and there is virtually no mention of God or the Christian Church If it is a morality it engages us in humanistic terms without a trace of cloying religiosity It makes for a refreshing and enjoyable readIn the last three chapters though Chamisso suddenly changes tack switching to a different folk tale altogether that of the seven league boots The narrator finds himself with the ability to travel all over the globe studying its geology fauna and especially flora It was not until I came back to read the translator s introduction that I realized that Chamisso was even better known as a botanist than a poet joining luminaries like Alexander von Humboldt in the forefront of the German scientific Enlightenment Though it makes Peter Schlemihl less successful as a novella it opens up the exciting new territory of autobiography as myth And the lost shadow becomes the perfect image for the author s rootlessness as a young man as a Frenchman exiled to Germany a soldier with the soul of a pacifist and a scientific thinker among multitudes ruled by superstition and blind faith
