The Life and Opinions of the Tomcat Murr

E.T.A. Hoffmann

1st

Publisher: Penguin Books

Format: Paperback

Tomcat Murr is a loveable, self-taught animal who has written his own autobiography. But a printer's error causes his story to be accidentally mixed and spliced with a book about the composer Johannes Kreisler. As the two versions break off and alternate at dramatic moments, two wildly different characters emerge from the confusion - Murr, the confident scholar, lover, carouser and brawler, and the moody, hypochondriac genius Kreisler. In his exuberant and bizarre novel, Hoffmann brilliantly evokes the fantastic, the ridiculous and the sublime within the humdrum bustle of daily life, making “The Life and Opinions of the Tomcat Murr” (1820-22) one of the funniest and strangest novels of the nineteenth century.
