Excerpt
Rudolph Baumbach is a poet. He was born in Thuringia, and now lives in Leipsic, where he is a favorite both as a writer and in society. Most of his works have been written in verse, which is spontaneous, full of melody, and as witty as Heine, but perfectly free from bitterness. He draws his inspiration largely from the Alps. His Zlatorog, an Alpine story, has reached the twenty-second edition, and the Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen and Frau Holde are each in the thirteenth edition. The present collection of short stories has been taken from two little volumes in prose, entitled, Sommer-Marchen and Erzahlungen und Marchen, which have been very popular in Germany.
