The Devil’s Elixirs, Ernst Theodore Amadeus Hoffmann

A mysterious, mystical, written with the author’s distinctive humour, the parody-Gothic novel The Devil’s Elixirs written ca. 1815-1816, is a literary masterpiece of Ernst Theodore Amadeus Hoffmann (1776 – 1822). There is a deep insight into the human subconscious hidden in its plot. With this book, Hoffmann introduced the topic of dualism in the world literature and laid the foundation for the Renaissance mythology. The novel had influenced the work of Stendhal, Balzac, Dostoevsky, Merezhkovsky, Freud and many other great writers. The book will give great pleasure to a thoughtful reader who appreciates works in the spirit of romanticism.
