by Friedrich de la Motte Fouqué

Description:  Romantic tale of the knight Huldbrand, who ventured alone into a haunted forest, there meeting and falling in love with a mysterious young woman, not knowing her true nature, whereupon tragic events ensue. Many of the characters in the narrative are full of interest, including the malicious Kuhleborn, the quaint old fisherman and his dame, good Father Heilmann, the worldly Bertalda, and the gallant but fickle Huldbrand, but most beautiful and lovely in her supernatural form of watersprite, and afterwards in the suffering wife when she had found a soul, is Undine. Few characters in romance have surpassed her in grace, refinement, and poetical beauty. A tale that has inspired many others, possibly even Andersen’s The Little Mermaid. The exquisite illustrations by Arthur Rackham that accompany this text are not to be missed!
