While Theodor Fontane s 1896 novel Effi Briest is definitely and with justification considered a classic and as such a masterpiece of German poetic realism the author s and with that also of course the narrator s at times overtly critical textual distance which when it materialises does tend to feel and read rather like an emotionless critical analysis also renders Effi Briest and by extension author Theodor Fontane himself as somewhat a literary midwife to the development of the 20th century Gesellschaftsroman the novel of society of stories like Thomas Mann s Buddenbrooks prose fiction which not only shows and tells about scenarios situations happenings but also and actually often first and foremost analyses and discusses these And indeed Thomas Mann himself always did consider Theodor Fontane and his oeuvre but especially his Effi Briest a major and personal literary influence so much so that it is now pretty well taken as a given that even the name of the family described in Buddenbrooks that the name Buddenbrooks itself was actually taken from a family name first encountered by Mann in Fontane s Effi BriestNow many critics seem both happy and even rather eager to simply lump Theodor Fontane s Effi Briest together with Gustave Flaubert s Madame Bovary and to claim that Effi Briest is like the former also and primarily basically mainly a novel of adultery an account of a woman behaving very very badly although it is true that in both novels Emma and Effi are in fact and indeed also shown as both being victims However I for one have NEVER considered the main protagonist have never considered Effi Briest to be even remotely akin and alike to Flaubert s Emma Bovary For while one can I guess agree with the statement that both Effi and Emma do engage in a an adulterous affair Effi Briest is always or at least in my humble opinion depicted by Fontane as being pretty much a total and absolute victim a naive young teenager used by both her family her parents and then her husband and later 19th century gentrified Prussian society for their pleasure their honour their social status no matter if this might harm her no matter if this might psychologically and spiritually devastate and even kill her while Emma Bovary really is somene who not only actively and very much knowingly consciously engages in adultery but then also with eual calculation poisons herself although she is in fact pretty much aware that her husband still very much loves her and that her death would majorly traumatise him is therefore both active and also intensely and willfully calculatingly adulterous and yes also at times uite nasty than Effi Briest is ever shown as really in any way beingAnd albeit that Emma Bovary might in fact and actually indeed be somewhat portrayed by Flaubert as a victim of society as well of the dictates of society she also does very much and in my opinion deliberately and actively create her own victims and her willful suicide by arsenic leaves a husband who still seems to very much love her despite everything in abject agony But Effi Briest well in my opinion she is always pretty much simply and only featured by Fontaine as a sad victim naive a bit spoiled not all that highly educated perhaps but first and foremost an innocent child someone who is married off as a teenager and by her own parents to Baron von Instetten and really ONLY for societal reasons for it is very clearly and I think always demonstrated by the author that Baron von Instetten does not in any way truly love or in any ways attempt to understand his young wife and sees Effi primarily as a marriage trophy as a means for making his status in society glowing and shining And although Effi should perhaps should likely not have allowed herself to be seduced by Major von Crampas it is he who actually and deliberately engages in the act of seduction in the first place it is he who is the original mover and shaker the person who with knowledge of what he is doing what he is engaging in starts the proverbial ball rolling to its sad and tragic conclusions with both his death and later Effi s death as the resultNow finally although I have always considered Theodor Fontane s Effi Briest to be both thematically and stylistically superb I love the back and forth of different modes of expression from plain objectiveness to subjective speculation from simple description to detailed analyses from personal emotional attachment to impersonal detachment the novel has also never really been a story that I could and would in any way label a personal favourite simply because I actually rather vehemently and personally despise so many of Theodor Fontane s featured his presented characters especially Effi s parents who both marry off their daughter to the highest bidder but rather disgustingly and worrisomely to the mother s former beau at that and then refuse to see their daughter for almost three years after the scandal after Effi s affair with von Crampas has become public knowledge only relenting when it is clear that she is close to death And yes with Effi s parents in particular I generally do seem to see the proverbial red for while the mother at least is willing to entertain the consideration of at least some culpability on her part the father seemingly never does never can considering his and his wife s possible and probable roles in the tragedy ein zu weites Feld too far a field Therefore while Effi Briest is indeed and in fact deservedly a classic and a brilliant literary achievement and a novel I have always much appreciated for its art for its literary merit and value the themes presented and the fact that most of the characters featured are majorly dysfunctional leave me livid and disgusted that a rather fleeting and in many ways rather insignificant small affair of the heart between Major von Crampas and Effi that was in fact for all intents and purposes really precipitated by Baron von Instetten ignoring and denigrating his young wife often leaving her feeling abandoned due to his societal obligations due to his career and his constant travels and absences that this ends up destroying Effi von Crampas and in many ways also von Instetten and all because of so called honour and glory Three and a half stars for Effi Briest and while I do highly recommend the novel I must nevertheless leave the caveat that I for one have not all that much enjoyed continuously reading about such problematic and dysfunctional characters and the honour system of Prussian nobility that basically devours and kills that basically just makes and leaves hapless victims all around And further just to say that I have also only ever read Effi Briest in German and thus do not feel that I can in any way make any comments as to the uality of potential English language translations but there do seem to be uite a few

Effi Briest 1895 is an impressive work of Prussian realism and it s definitely classed as a tragic novel one may argue one of the best to come out of the 19th century The story is simple enough hardly uniue and been done with similarities many times over since Geert von Innstetten an ambitious nobleman and civil servant on the brink of middle age makes an uncontroversial marriage to Effi von Briest the 17 year old daughter of a former flame Innstetten takes her back to the town in Pomerania from which he runs the local administration A daughter Annie is born but Innstetten is keen to get on and leaves his young wife on her own where she falls prey to a cunning womaniser Major von Crampas Effi was never really fond of Crampas and the events that follow her early marriage start to take there toll She slowly turns from a spritely young girl to someone with heavy melancholy on their shoulders Once Innstetten gets wind of an affair he takes matters into his own hands with a deadly outcome Whilst a solitude Effi would decline in health with the added turmoil of bouts of despairTheodor Fontane based the story on a case he had read about in the newspapers and it s uite easy to see whilst reading that it could have happened you feel everything is so real Fontane was the supreme apologist for Prussian values and his heroes and villains are often drawn from the ranks of its modest but warlike suirearchy Innstetten is another Prussian type the altruistic bureaucrat As an old lady from Hamburg once told him We hated the Prussians but such a thing as a corrupt official would have been unthinkable then It is not just the nobility that Fontane portrays Kessin is Swinem nde a port city in Poland where Fontane himself grew up and the novelist presents an affectionate tableau of provincial life in a Prussian seaside town And an old apothecary is also a portrait of Fontane s own father Effi is at the heart of the novel and it s hearts she is likely to break I felt for her plight deeplyShe was simply too young to handle the situations presented before her Later on Effi succeeds in seeing her daughter this after she ends up living alone and is heartbroken to learn Annie has become a father s girl For the first and last time Effi looks at those around her as a curse but in the end she becomes part of the problem herself For Innstetten and Effi a sympathetic nature is shown for both and their destinies are set with seemingly no way out Fontane presents the story with superiority and captures life of this period so well Here is the problem though and it isn t with the novel itself but with the version I happened to read For some strange reason 90% of it s content was English language but words like the and then there those and this were left in German Also Effi had her name misspelled often as Lffi This didn t completely ruin the novel but it didn t help either spoiling in part what was a fine piece of writing
