A Hoffmann Book editions published between and in 11 languages and held by 1, WorldCat member libraries worldwide ""Tomcat Murr is a loveable, self-taught animal who has written his own autobiography.
But a printer's error causes his story to be accidentally mixed and spliced with a book about the composer Johannes Kreisler. As the two versions break off and alternate at dramatic moments, two wildly different characters emerge from the confusion - Murr, the confident scholar, lover, carouser and brawler, and the moody, hypochondriac genius Kreisler. In his exuberant and bizarre novel, Hoffmann brilliantly evokes the fantastic, the ridiculous and the sublime within the humdrum bustle of daily life, making "The Life and Opinions of the Tomcat Murr" one of the funniest and strangest novels of the nineteenth century.

The tales of Hoffmann by E. A Hoffmann Book 32 editions published between and in English and German and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide "This selection of Hoffmann's finest short stories vividly demonstrates his intense imagination and preoccupation with the supernatural, placing him at the forefront of both surrealism and the modern horror genre. Suspense dominates tales such as Mademoiselle de Scudery, in which an apprentice goldsmith and a female novelist find themselves caught up in a series of jewel thefts and murders.
In the sinister Sandman, a young man's sanity is tormented by fears about a mysterious chemist, while in The Choosing of a Bride a greedy father preys on the weaknesses of his daughter's suitors. Master of the bizarre, Hoffman creates a sinister and unsettling world combining love and madness, black humour and bewildering illusion"--Publisher's description.

About This Item
Books by E. Hoffmann View All. Sanna Annukka Ltd, E. Kate Thompson, E. Hoffmann, Robert Ingpen. During the summer of , his uncle was promoted to a court in Berlin, and the three of them moved there in August—Hoffmann's first residence in a large city. It was there that Hoffmann first attempted to promote himself as a composer, writing an operetta called Die Maske and sending a copy to Queen Luise of Prussia. The official reply advised to him to write to the director of the Royal Theatre, a man named Iffland.
This was the first time he had lived without supervision by members of his family, and he started to become "what school principals, parsons, uncles, and aunts call dissolute. His first job, at Posen, was endangered after Carnival on Shrove Tuesday , when caricatures of military officers were distributed at a ball. It was immediately deduced who had drawn them, and complaints were made to authorities in Berlin, who were reluctant to punish the promising young official.
Hoffmann despaired because of his exile, and drew caricatures of himself drowning in mud alongside ragged villagers. He did make use, however, of his isolation, by writing and composing.
He started a diary on 1 October Hoffmann's was called Der Preis "The Prize" , and was itself about a competition to write a play. There were fourteen entries, but none was judged worthy of the award: Friedrichs d'or. Nevertheless, his entry was singled out for praise. At the beginning of he obtained a post at Warsaw.
On his way there, he passed through his hometown and met one of Dora Hatt's daughters. Hoffmann assimilated well with Polish society; the years spent in Prussian Poland he recognized as the happiest of his life.

In Warsaw he found the same atmosphere he had enjoyed in Berlin, renewing his friendship with Zacharias Werner , and meeting his future biographer, a neighbour and fellow jurist called Julius Eduard Itzig who changed his name to Hitzig after his baptism.
These relatively late introductions marked his work profoundly. As chief Prussian administrator of the city from to , Hoffmann was responsible for assigning surnames to Warsaw's Jewish community — a duty he executed based on whims. The names Hoffmann doled out would apparently depend on the day of the week — Monday the names of flowers, Friday the names of fish, or hung-over after drinking with a Prussian army officer military names like Festung, Fojer, Pistolet, and Trompeter.
But Hoffmann's fortunate position was not to last: on 28 November , during the War of the Fourth Coalition , Napoleon Bonaparte 's troops captured Warsaw, and the Prussian bureaucrats lost their jobs. They divided the contents of the treasury between them and fled. A delay of six months was caused by severe illness. Eventually the French authorities demanded that all former officials swear allegiance or leave the country. As they refused to grant Hoffmann a passport to Vienna, he was forced to return to Berlin.
He visited his family in Posen before arriving in Berlin on 18 June , hoping to further his career there as an artist and writer. The next fifteen months were some of the worst in Hoffmann's life. The city of Berlin was also occupied by Napoleon's troops. Obtaining only meagre allowances, he had frequent recourse to his friends, constantly borrowing money and still going hungry for days at a time; he learned that his daughter had died. Nevertheless, he managed to compose his Six Canticles for a cappella choir: one of his best compositions, which he would later attribute to Kreisler in Lebensansichten des Katers Murr.
