E. T. A. Hoffmann - Five Stories

Author: Ernst Theodor Amadeus Hoffmann


Ernst Theodor Amadeus Hoffmann (24 January 1776 – 25 June 1822), better known as E. T. A. Hoffmann, was a German Romantic author of fantasy and horror, a jurist, composer, music critic, draftsman and caricaturist. His stories form the basis of Jacques Offenbach's famous opera The Tales of Hoffmann, in which he appears (heavily fictionalized) as the hero. He is also the author of the novella The Nutcracker and the Mouse King, on which the famous ballet The Nutcracker is based. The ballet Coppelia is based on two other stories that he wrote, while Schumann's Kreisleriana is based on author's character Johannes Kreisler.

His stories were very influential during the 19th century, and he is one of the major authors of the Romantic movement.
