Author bio:

Adalbert Stifter (1805-1868) was an Austrian writer, painter and tutor to the Viennese aristocracy. Informally part of the so-called Biedermeier movement in German-language literature, he has been celebrated by both German and English writers, including Rilke, von Hofmannsthal, Mann, Hesse, Auden and Sebald, and is particularly famed for his vivid descriptions of natural landscapes in his literary work.
Adalbert Stifter's The Bachelors is also published by Pushkin Press.
