Original Title: Die Auferstehung des Adalbert Stifter
Adalbert Stifter was a writer whose life and work was character-ized by an inclination to the excessive, the pathological and the unfathomable. This is the reason why Stifter’s literature is still interesting and relevant. Kurt Palm attempts to clear away the cobwebs that have collected over Stifter’s books and monuments in the course of the decades and presents this literary giant in a new light.
