Grieshuus: The Chronicle of a Family & Bicentenary celebration of Stormís birth

26th October 2017 - The European Bookshop - 19:00 - 20:30

Book launch for Grieshuus: The Chronicle of a Family translated by Denis Jackson (published by Angel Classics) and Bicentenary celebration of Storm's birth.

Bicentenary talk on Storm for English readers by Dr Barbara Lester, University College London, followed by drinks.

Autumn 2017 sees the bicentenary of the birth of one of the most deeply affecting of German writers, Theodor Storm. Although his name is familiar to some for his most celebrated work, Der Schimmelreiter (The Dykemaster), his other work of comparable stature has remained unknown to the wider English-speaking public for want of adequate translations.

Dr Lester makes clear what the English reader of classic European literature has been missing in the novellas of this master storyteller whose tales of small-town burgher life in the North Sea coastal region of northern Germany attain the status of tragedy.

She draws attention to Denis Jacksonís series of pioneering new English translations of Stormís major novellas. His sixth and latest selection consists of the single historical novella Grieshuus: The Chronicle of a Family, published this month, a narrative tour de force spanning several generations during the devastating Northern Wars between Sweden and Denmark and allied European powers.
