Sort: Oldest first
A German novelist (1817-93). Her first considerable story, "The Last Reckenburgerin" (1871), was very warmly praised by the critics for its power in character delineation: it was followed by "Frau Erdmuthen's Twin Boys" (1872); "Climacteric Years of a Lucky Fellow" (1877); "Judith the Housekeeper" (1868), a peasant counterpart to "The Last Reckenburgerin", and next after that her best story. She wrote a "Popular History of the Prussian War of Liberation, 1813-15"; and a comedy relating to the Seven Years' War, "Woman's Station" (1882).
