For years, Caspar David Friedrich used to be my favourite painter. There are not many painters like him who are such perfect examples of dark romanticism. What E.T.A. Hoffmann represents for German literature, Caspar David Friedrich incarnates for German art.
Thanks to Danielle from A Work in Progress, I found this challenge that is truly to my liking. Being a Goth at heart I am really looking forward to this. Participating and reading alike. It has started end of September and finishes on October 31st. Since I am maybe the only or one of a few non-native English speakers participating I tought it might be my own personal little challenge to find German examples.
And here goes:
My choice for a novel is going to be one of Gustav Meyrink’s. It will be either :
The Green Face
The White Dominican or
The Angel of the West Window
The short story has already been chosen. It is going to be the following:
E.T.A. Hoffmann’s The Sandman
Last but not least., I chose a classic movie namely M.F. Murnau’s Nosferatu.
