Theodor Fontane ´ 7 Characters

Theodor Fontane ´ 7 Characters Summary Ï eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ´ Theodor Fontane Review Effi Briest Sellschaftsromans der wenige Jahre später mit Thomas Manns Roman Buddenbrooks erstmals Weltgeltung erlangen soll. While Theodor Fontane s 1896 novel Effi Briest is definitely and with justification considered a classic and as such a masterpiece of German poetic realism the author s and with that also of course the narrator s at times overtly critical textual distance which when it materialises does tend to feel and read rather like an emotionless critical analysis also renders Effi Briest and by extension author Theodor Fontane himself as somewhat a literary midwife to the development of the 20th century Gesellschaftsroman the novel of society of stories like Thomas Mann s Buddenbrooks prose fiction which not only shows and tells about scenarios situations happenings but also and actually often first and foremost analyses and discusses these And indeed Thomas Mann himself always did consider Theodor Fontane and his oeuvre but especially his Effi Briest a major and personal literary influence so much so that it is now pretty well taken as a given that even the name of the family described in Buddenbrooks that the name Buddenbrooks itself was actually taken from a family name first encountered by Mann in Fontane s Effi BriestNow many critics seem both happy and even rather eager to simply lump Theodor Fontane s Effi Briest together with Gustave Flaubert s Madame Bovary and to claim that Effi Briest is like the former also and primarily basically mainly a novel of adultery an account of a woman behaving very very badly although it is true that in both novels Emma and Effi are in fact and indeed also shown as both being victims However I for one have NEVER considered the main protagonist have never considered Effi Briest to be even remotely akin and alike to Flaubert s Emma Bovary For while one can I guess agree with the statement that both Effi and Emma do engage in a an adulterous affair Effi Briest is always or at least in my humble opinion depicted by Fontane as being pretty much a total and absolute victim a naive young teenager used by both her family her parents and then her husband and later 19th century gentrified Prussian society for their pleasure their honour their social status no matter if this might harm her no matter if this might psychologically and spiritually devastate and even kill her while Emma Bovary really is somene who not only actively and very much knowingly consciously engages in adultery but then also with eual calculation poisons herself although she is in fact pretty much aware that her husband still very much loves her and that her death would majorly traumatise him is therefore both active and also intensely and willfully calculatingly adulterous and yes also at times uite nasty than Effi Briest is ever shown as really in any way beingAnd albeit that Emma Bovary might in fact and actually indeed be somewhat portrayed by Flaubert as a victim of society as well of the dictates of society she also does very much and in my opinion deliberately and actively create her own victims and her willful suicide by arsenic leaves a husband who still seems to very much love her despite everything in abject agony But Effi Briest well in my opinion she is always pretty much simply and only featured by Fontaine as a sad victim naive a bit spoiled not all that highly educated perhaps but first and foremost an innocent child someone who is married off as a teenager and by her own parents to Baron von Instetten and really ONLY for societal reasons for it is very clearly and I think always demonstrated by the author that Baron von Instetten does not in any way truly love or in any ways attempt to understand his young wife and sees Effi primarily as a marriage trophy as a means for making his status in society glowing and shining And although Effi should perhaps should likely not have allowed herself to be seduced by Major von Crampas it is he who actually and deliberately engages in the act of seduction in the first place it is he who is the original mover and shaker the person who with knowledge of what he is doing what he is engaging in starts the proverbial ball rolling to its sad and tragic conclusions with both his death and later Effi s death as the resultNow finally although I have always considered Theodor Fontane s Effi Briest to be both thematically and stylistically superb I love the back and forth of different modes of expression from plain objectiveness to subjective speculation from simple description to detailed analyses from personal emotional attachment to impersonal detachment the novel has also never really been a story that I could and would in any way label a personal favourite simply because I actually rather vehemently and personally despise so many of Theodor Fontane s featured his presented characters especially Effi s parents who both marry off their daughter to the highest bidder but rather disgustingly and worrisomely to the mother s former beau at that and then refuse to see their daughter for almost three years after the scandal after Effi s affair with von Crampas has become public knowledge only relenting when it is clear that she is close to death And yes with Effi s parents in particular I generally do seem to see the proverbial red for while the mother at least is willing to entertain the consideration of at least some culpability on her part the father seemingly never does never can considering his and his wife s possible and probable roles in the tragedy ein zu weites Feld too far a field Therefore while Effi Briest is indeed and in fact deservedly a classic and a brilliant literary achievement and a novel I have always much appreciated for its art for its literary merit and value the themes presented and the fact that most of the characters featured are majorly dysfunctional leave me livid and disgusted that a rather fleeting and in many ways rather insignificant small affair of the heart between Major von Crampas and Effi that was in fact for all intents and purposes really precipitated by Baron von Instetten ignoring and denigrating his young wife often leaving her feeling abandoned due to his societal obligations due to his career and his constant travels and absences that this ends up destroying Effi von Crampas and in many ways also von Instetten and all because of so called honour and glory Three and a half stars for Effi Briest and while I do highly recommend the novel I must nevertheless leave the caveat that I for one have not all that much enjoyed continuously reading about such problematic and dysfunctional characters and the honour system of Prussian nobility that basically devours and kills that basically just makes and leaves hapless victims all around And further just to say that I have also only ever read Effi Briest in German and thus do not feel that I can in any way make any comments as to the uality of potential English language translations but there do seem to be uite a few Christmas Roses is definitely and with justification considered a

Subtlety is an art form rarely seen in our era We live in a time where bombastic loud and graphic compete for our senses But does one really need that much noise and glamor in order to captivate Are we really that inattentive Theodore Fontane s Effi Briest is the rare novel that exercises graceful restraint yet echoes than the proverbial cannon It tells the story of a young woman who yields at everything thrown her way from her marriage to a much older man life in a backwater town and eventually to a lover Then when the curtain drops she accepts her dreadful fate without complaint her life they very epitome of resignation What s curious about this novel though is that the adulterous act is never so much as depicted It goes on for a while in the background with little hints here and there but the reader can be inclined to attribute it to playful imagination It is treated like a ghost to be wary of always alluded to but never explicitly confirmed Not until the last few pages is the suspicion set and the heavy feeling substantiated It creeps slowly silently and hovers like smog disguised as a mist mingling the spirits of trust and guilt There are so many lives that aren t real lives so many marriages that aren t real marriages Effi s marriage to her husband Innstentten who was nearly the age of her father can be considered the seed of her misfortune Putting things into perspective from the generational psychological and even social standpoints there was such a wide chasm between them and this was further amplified by the great difference in their educational experience It was such a doomed affair from the start that no matter how accommodating one is to the other there is too great a difference in their personalities that miscommunication is often the result Their relationship can be seen as symbolizing the conflict between nature and culture She was a person of her whims following her vain thoughts like a stream flowing through the recesses and cracks she finds going whenever the current takes her and so she drifted into an affair while as a civil servant and minister he cared about principles and social conventions and so once he discovered the affair even long after it ended he could not stop himself from going through his uest for reparation even if he wanted to keep the whole thing secret and knew that he longed to forgive his wife because he loved her still Using realism as his tool Fontane shows the whole absurdity of the matter He examines the proclivities of nature and how culture can stunt its development It also looks at the role of age in the whole affair the youth like Effi are always inclined to follow their nature and fancies but as one ages and reaches a certain point in life much like Innstentten you become grounded in culture and norms thus your obligations take priority over your inclinations Culture especially through education does much good if pursued with an appropriately human and flexible emphasis It should aim to harness our nature and help it reach the utmost potential to express itself and manifest fully a distilled version better euipped to deal with the pressures of life However it fails in its function if it becomes an instrument of repression which eliminate the freedom of thought and the scope of imagination instead of facilitating them killing the buds that bloom into one s natural voice and words On the other side when nature is given reigns unchecked without proper guidance something Culture can provide then it can only lead to irresponsible ruin In Effi s case sadly the contrasting of these two facets was her bane when its harmony would have been her salvation Yes I m plagued by fear and shame too at my own duplicity But not shame at my guilt I don t feel that or not properly or not enough and that s what s crushing me the fact that I don t feel it Immediately after finishing this novel I uestioned myself what about it was the most striking fragment and I was at a loss The whole thing seemed uite underwhelming buried in all its subtleness yet at the same time I realized that it wasn t so much as a lack of reaction on my part but rather a renunciation of effect on its giving off a controlled muteness which it keenly achieves Effi Briest does not seek to protest to stir the emotion or impart a profound lesson It aims for one thing realism true unaffected and often silent It asks us to think our own thoughts and see it in a light that shines brightest for us Offering warmth of human understanding and a non judgmental attitude to human weakness this great novel offers an inner uiet that can only be interpreted as the highest form of respect accorded to its readers to our nature Stand in the breach and hold the line till you fall that s the best thing And before you go get as much as possible out of the smallest things of life the smallest of all
