Underappreciated: Theodor Fontane’s Effi Briest and Irretrievable

Wednesday, July 27, 2011

This summer’s first Underappreciated segment is on 19th-century Realist writer Theodor Fontane. Professor Edith H. Krause, Professor of German and Chair of the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures at Duquesnes University, discusses Fontane’s best known works—his 1896 novel Effi Briest, considered a masterpiece of realist fiction alongside Madame Bovary and Anna Karenina, and his 1892 novel Irretrievable, which was recently re-published by New York Review of Books.
