9781843910442: The Lake of the Bees (Hesperus Classics)

Described by the author himself as a pearl of German poetry,” The Lake of the Bees is one of his earliest novellas. In it, he explores the bittersweet sorrow of memory. An old man looks back on his life and remembers Elizabeth the only woman he ever loved. The two of them had shared their childhood, shared their summer holidays and family picnics. Yet somehow all had been lost the joy, excitement, and hope slowly replaced by the melancholy, resignation, and inertia that comes from broken dreams. Now, at the end of his life, he is left only with the knowledge of what might have been. Theodor Storm is a leading figure of German Poetic Realism; his novellas are some of the finest in German literature.

From the Publisher:

Hesperus Press, as suggested by their Latin motto, Et remotissima prope, is dedicated to bringing near what is far—far both in space and time. Works by illustrious authors, often unjustly neglected or simply little known in the English–speaking world, are made accessible through a completely fresh editorial approach and new translations. Through these short classic works, which feature forewords by leading contemporary authors, the modern reader will be introduced to the greatest writers of Europe and America. An elegantly designed series of genuine rediscoveries.
