Effi Briest (1895) is the greatest work of Prussian realism and certainly one of the best tragic novels of the 19th century. The story is simple enough and hardly unique: 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.

In Effi Briest does he elaborate anywhere in the book about the affair or does he just say it happens? . There's a quote by Fontane that seems helpful in this case

There's a quote by Fontane that seems helpful in this case. It's in German but on page 165 of this document, there's an excerpt from a letter that he apparently sent to a reader who stated that the events described in the book aren't proof enough for the affair. Daß ich die Sache im Unklaren gelassen hätte, kann ich nicht zugeben, die berühmten 'Schilderungen' (der Gipfel der ) vermeide ich freilich, aber Effis Brief an Crampas und die mitgetheilten 3 Zettel von Crampas an Effi, die sagen doch alles.

Unworldly young Effi Briest is married off to Baron von Innstetten, an austere and ambitious civil servant twice her age, who has little time for his new wife. Isolated and bored, Effi finds comfort and distraction in a brief liaison with Major Crampas, a married man with a dangerous reputation. But years later, when Effi has almost forgotten her affair, the secret returns to haunt her, with fatal consequences

Words with which Innstetten could only ever agree

I am disappointed in this edition of Efii Briest. The footnotes are quite helpful, but it is an exaggeration to call this a side by side edition as large portions of the text are not translated and so the German text sits on the left side and after a cursory summary of what happens (in just a fewlines) there is blank white space on the right for several pages. While translations of this in English are available, the whole point of this (I thought) is to give people who are working on learning German a comparison text to look at. (If this is a pedagogic decision then atleast if could be explained and defended in some kind of foreward, and then the blank pages could have notes about translation issues and aids to students, but instead the reader is simply confronted with empty pages. The book is a large format, (which is nice), but I can't really recommend it.

Theodor Fontane was a wonderful writer. In a subtle & disarming way, he addresses social, political, geographical, & personal issues. He wrote in a way that illuminated the cultural influences in the Brandenburger March & the rapid changes that were underway at his time. He did this through what seems to be a simple story-telling style, but his use of language was highly crafted, and he never told his readers what to think. The individuals essentially led their lives as they had to, because of who they were. Violence (in the form of a duel) & sexual content (an affair) are dealt with as expressions of the characters' emotions, but there are no graphic descriptions of the actual events. Those events occur fleetingly, becoming part of the causality of later events. Much has been said in comparing Effie Briest to Flaubert's Madame Bovary; but Effie is a far more innocent person whose life is ruined by her own behavior, for which she accepts responsibility, while Emma Bovary is so narcissistic that one cannot empathize with her. Even the characters who might have been treated like villains by other writers are presented without florid descriptions; rather, they, too, are just who they are.Until I bought this volume, I'd read Fontanne only in wonderful translations from the German, which left me wondering whether I'd gotten the full sense of his writing. I am delighted that I now have further insight into the craft of this fine writer.

How does one rate a classic that has already stood the test of time? It sheds an interesting light into the time in Germany before the World War I. I read the German edition because German is my first language. To somebody who speaks German not very competently, this will be difficult to read. Yet, at the same time, I cannot imagine how it could be translated and give justice to the brilliance of the language.

It's a German classic. The film is on YouTube, by the way. If you read German, it's quite worth buying.

The book arrived in perfect condition. I loved the story.

Fontane's examination of upper class Germany in the nineteenth century ultimately proves to be a scathing indictment of the "me first" mentality, but, and this is important: NOTHING HAPPENS. For about 200 pages Fontane wastes the readers' time by doing what could be done in about 30 pages: He shows how messed up the whole aristocratic scene was. Yeah, so they commit adultery an lie to each others face, you don't have to drag it out for so damn long. All in all, it makes me feel good to NOT be a rich upper class waster. And once the hammer drops (about 35 pages before the book ends) it still doesn't matter that Fontane has built these characters up: They are all the same exact characters in different bodies. I didn't feel anything for Effi or Instetten or anyone else except Roswitha, and her only because her dad chased her aroudn with a red-hot poker when she was a young girl.
