“Meine Frau hätte gern einen Ernstthaler Kartoffelkuchen”: Ausgewählte Briefe 1860-1912
Author: Karl May
Editor: Volker Griese
The selected letters show in biographical, cultural-historical and literary terms a multifaceted picture of the idiosyncratic, impressive but also ambiguous personality of Karl May (1842-1912). They follow the writer's path from the failed elementary school teacher to the "renown period" and the associated obsessive compulsion to self-stylize, the publicly proclaimed equation of written and private life, to the last years of life, which were overshadowed by public arguments and processes.
