Castle Gripsholm

A Summer Story

Book - 1988
Rate this:
A fable-like short novel about two lovers who, during a summertime idyll in the Swedish countryside, encounter a crying young girl running for her life from a children's home run by a sadistic headmistress, Castle Gripsholm is one of the undisputed classics of modern German literature. It is a parable of devastating beauty and malice, as exuberant and lyrical in its descriptions of nature and pastoral innocence as it is bitter and undermining in its contempt for the Nazi regime that forced the author into exile, publicly burned his books, and persecuted him until his early death.
Publisher: Woodstock, N.Y. : Overlook Press, 1988, c1985.
