This book is not yet featured on Listopia. A Hungarian country estate, a man travels by invitation to spend time with his older friend. He is given a tour of the estate, the gardens, the stables, and introduced to a woman who runs a neighboring estate. He will eventually learn her story, learn that the man he is visiting is in love with her, but both have decided to remain as friends.

She has a son, in his early twenties, who will have a confrontation with nature, this will propel the novel to its stunning conclusion. Beautiful but plain A Hungarian country estate, a man travels by invitation to spend time with his older friend.

Beautiful but plain prose, descriptive but not overly so. I found this refreshingly old fashioned, refreshing because it relies on good storytelling without gimmicks, multiple storylines, or graphic shock value.

In the afterward it is explained that this author values what happens in the sttifter and mind of his protagonists and are accompanied by descriptions of a beneficent natural order.

But honestly, even when I was reading Brigitta inwhile I certainly did understand, while I certainly was well aware of the fact that Brigitta Marosheli is depicted and presented by Adalbert Stifter as being rather plain and masculine looking in appearance, I absolutely NEVER even remotely thought that he was showing and portraying her as being in any way physically ugly.


And even now, upon rereading, while I can to a certain extent perhaps understand how and why some interpreters do see in Stifter’s Brigitta the embodiment of the physically unattractive, even perhaps repellent woman with an internally glowing and beautiful soul and philosophy, I do personally rather majorly cringe at this assessment, because for my eyes, for my own aesthetics, Brigitta Marosheli is NOT AT ALL physically abhorrent in etifter, for while she might not be dainty and prettified, her very plainness and a trifle masculine physique is absolutely and totally as shining as her inner self, with real and true ugliness manifesting itself mostly and mainly in and trough Brigitta’s parents, especially her vain as a proverbial peacock mother for willfully turning her back on a daughter not considered comme il faut with regard to her and “society’s” standards of accepted beauty.

Questa lettura nasce sulla scia del bellissimo “Danubio” di Claudio Aralbert. Dann aber tritt Brigitta und ihr Schicksal mit aller Macht in den Vordergrund. Hier aber setzt die eigentliche Geschichte erst ein, dessen weiteren Verlauf dem Leser vorbehalten bleibt. View all 4 comments. Los dos son grandes viajeros y se conocieron en uno de estos viajes, quedando como amigos. En resumen, una buena historia.

May 31, Gill rated it really liked it. I thought this was a nice read.

The language was lovely!. It’s mainly set in eastern Hungary. It’s a novella really, and the description of the countryside, of the animals and the people is very evocative. I can see how W. Sebald said that its author influenced him. I understand that Rock Crystal is available on Librivox, so I’m going to have a look at that soon. View all 3 comments.

Innanzitutto entrambe appartengono al medesimo periodo della vita di Stifter: Inoltre le storie in esse narrate sono formalmente molto simili. In entrambe il protagonista narra in prima persona, anni dopo, episodi della sua vita da giovane.

Entrambi i personaggi sono particolarmente interessanti. Significativamente il suo riavvicinamento a lei avviene innanzitutto su un piano utilitaristico, con la creazione di un consorzio per il migliore sfruttamento delle terre. La tesi sviluppata da Matteo Galli secondo la quale non sarebbero giocoforza da attribuire a Stifter in quanto autore le idee e le opinioni espresse dai narratori in prima persona delle sue opere mi lascia invece alquanto perplesso.


Quali altre idee ed opinioni esprimerebbe Stifter in quanto autore se non quelle che mette in bocca ai suoi personaggi, ed in particolare ai suoi alter ego che parlano in prima persona e a cui affida la documentazione e in qualche modo la morale delle vicende narrate? Lo stesso Galli infatti a mio modo di vedere si smentisce nel prosieguo del breve saggio introduttivo, ad esempio quando evidenzia i contenuti politici di alcuni discorsi del Maggiore, che non possono che essere attribuiti a Stifter.

Es ist im Weltall, es ist in einem Auge. If you want a brief immersion in the natural world and a dose of comfort, you can always count on Stifter. Offers a different insight in to the character of Brigitta – in many ways unusual from many characters one comes across in novels.

I very much enjoyed this story. A wonderful story about love and forgiveness.

Brigitta – Wikipedia

Un meraviglioso racconto sull’amore e il perdono. So foggy, beautiful and marvellous novel. Oct 06, Nouruddin M.

Hungary sounds like a weird place. I thought this book was mostly boring, overall. It had it’s good moments, but the style was very long and drawn out. I do know, however, that that particular style added to the themes of cultivation and patience the book deals with, but it just did not interest me that much, although the ending was good.

Adalbert Stifter was an Austrian writer, poet, painter, and pedagogue. He was especially notable for the vivid natural landscapes depicted in his writing, and has long been popular in the German-speaking world, while almost entirely unknown to English readers. Books by Adalbert Stifter. No trivia or quizzes yet. The afalbert, in moments of ecstasy, often soars across it; poetry unveils it at times with childlike naivete; but science with its hammer and yardstick is often perched at the rim and may, in many cases, contribute nothing at all.
