Annette von Droste-Huelshoff: A Biography by Mary Elizabeth Morgan

The literary achievement of Annette von Droste-Hülshoff is here seen as both original and closely linked with certain events in her life and with the age in which she lived: the opening years of the industrial age and of «modern times». Yet while much attention is given to her work, the present book is largely concerned with making the personality of this interesting woman known through her Letters and an account of her life, her background and her many revealing friendships.
