    One thought on “Undine. ILLUSTRATED.”

    1. Read free Gutenberg Project ePub file on iPhone with sleeping newborn sprite (she was living in an aquatic environment just a few days ago) on chest or nearby. Read it thanks to an encouraging mention in Lovecraft's Supernatural Horror in Literature. It's a long fairy tale in form and tone, a supernatural love triangle involving the coolest secondary character I've seen in a while: an impish uncle who's half-man/half-brook. As H.P. states, early on it nicely evokes the unknown, particularly in t [...]

    2. Durch einen Spukwald, der die Zivilisation vom elementaren Naturraum trennt, gerät Ritter Huldbrand zu einem alten Fischerehepaar und ihrer Ziehtochter Undine. Fasziniert von der wilden, unkonventionellen Undine, verliebt sich Huldbrand in die Kindfrau, die von ihrem Vater, einem Wasserfürsten, in die Menschenwelt geschickt wurde, um durch die Heirat mit einem Menschen eine Seele zu bekommen. Im beseelten Zustand verliert Undine ihr erotisches Charisma und die Liebe Huldbrands. Nicht ganz Teil [...]

    3. Yazılan metinden eserin 1810'lu yıllarda yazıldığını anlamak çok zor, aşka dair harikulade bir anlatı. Aradan yıllar geçmesine rağmen ikinci okuyuşumda, sonraki sayfada gelecek bazı diyalogları kelimesi kelimesine hatırlayınca (ki bu benim gibi unutkan birisi için mucizedir) kitabın benim için ne denli önemli olduğunu bir kez daha fark ettim.

    4. Çok güzel bir hikayeydi etkiledi beni bayağı :) Bir gün bir balıkçı adam ve karısının kız bebekleri göl kenarında kaybolur ve akşama 3-4 yaşlarında çok güzel, sarışın bir kız üzerinden sular damlayarak kapılarında belirir ve bu aile kızı manevi çocukları olarak kabul ederler. İlerleyen yıllarda bir şovalyenin yolu bu ailenin yanına düşer ve görür görmez kızımız Undine'ye aşık olur ve onla evlenmek ister. Undine ise kendisi hakkındaki gerçeği anlatı [...]

    5. I heard this described as a true fairytale. Intrigued, I read it and was not disappointed. A tragic tale of an elemental who seeks to gain a soul through unconditional love and marriage to a human. ( A handsome Knight of course) This book caters to all aspects of a true fairytale; a subtle yet revealing moral, magic and mystery, and of course, love and betrayal. My heart continuously went out to the beautiful "water-spirit" who so desperately wanted a soul, a better inner life and to the Knight, [...]

    6. Bende blog macerasına atıldım :D bu yorumu aynı zamanda blogumdada bulabilirsinizCan yayınlarının geçtiğimiz yıl yayınlamaya başladığı gotik-romantik serisine başlayabildim sonunda, ve ilk olarak seçimimi J.R.R Tolkien'in Yüzüklerin Efendisi'ne esin kaynağı olan Der Zauberring'in (sihirli yüzük) yazarı FRIEDRICH DE LA MOTTE FOUQUÉ'un 1809 yılında yazdığı Undine oldu.Gerçekten güzel bir öyküydü. Beni etkiledi diyebilirim. Günümüzde özellikle maddi amaçlı a [...]

    7. Even though I just finished this book yesterday, I feel the need to write my review quickly because it's a story that seems to slide out of my mind; when I would walk away from it and come back, it often took me a moment to reorient myself to this strange little story. Perhaps such slipperiness is appropriate for a story about a volatile water creature, but everything just felt so wishy-washy to me that I had trouble finding much to hold onto. Undine was a spoiled child or an angelic woman. The [...]

    8. Ein wundersames sinnliches Märchen, das den dafür empfänglichen Leser mit einer melancholischen schönen Wassernymphe namens Undine bezaubert und ihn in eine Sprachwelt voller Poesie und romantischer Bilder entführt. Der Erzählrhythmus ist ganz nach dem Wesen des Wassers, das uns durch die gesamte Geschichte trägt: leise fließend bis kraftvoll rauschend oder gar tosend über die Ufer brechend. Die Handlung fesselte mich von Anbeginn durch die Einführung des Ritters auf seinen weißen Hen [...]

    9. So this is the tale that launched a thousand mermaid stories. If you can launch a mermaid story, that is. Now, it is an old story – you know before women were considered fully fledged members of the human race and stuff. In some ways, it is rather sympathetic to the two women – one a water spirit, the other a human woman – both of whom love the same man – who is a wishy washy jerk. It is the human woman who elicits more reaction and sympathy. Her life is turned upside down and she is c [...]

    10. ZagrebNaprijed, 1965.Preveo Bruno LjubezIzašlo unutar korica "Njemački pripovjedači 19. stoljeća".Radi se o noveli.Narator je sveznajući, baca sve u trećem licu.Ovo djelo je amblematski sjaj koji potvrđuje da ne postoji jača svjetlost od svjetlosti romantizma. Romantizam je bio vrhunac ljudskog stvaralaštva. Nakon takve poetike možemo se svi skupa baciti kroz prozor. Ili možemo početi čitati djela romantizma. Ja čak i predlažem i da živimo romantizam!Jezik je izrazito atmosferič [...]

    11. Struggente fiaba superbamente scritta. Apparizioni fantastiche descritte in modo tanto efficace da materializzarsi subito alla mente con una potenza inaudita, cinematografica. Un incontro di mondi, folklore, leggende e credenze, con una morale squisitamente Romantica. Che qualcuno ristampi questo piccolo capolavoro con le stupende illustrazioni di Arthur Rackham, please!

    12. Ich habe mir Undine vorlesen lassen, ganz wunderbar geruhsam von Rainer Buck. Lasst Euch nicht von meinr langen Hördauer täuschen: Ich habe es immer nur gehört, wenn ich mit dem Rad bergan zur Arbeit fuhr, was eindeutig bislang in diesem Jahr zu selten passierte. ;)Die Geschichte um den Wassergeist Undine, welche den Ritter Huldbrand ehelicht, brauchte etwas, bis sie mich packte. Gerade zu Anfang war Undines Benehmen (ich sah sie im Geiste wie ein kleines Kind mit dem Fuße aufstampfen und h [...]

    13. THE SACRIFICE OF A WATER SPRITEThis is the original fairy tale Noir, which inspired all the rest: ballet, opera, Giroudoux' ONDINE and Osborne's HAUNTED WATERS. This novella examines the spiritual question of the Soul--that elusive qualify in which mankind trusts. Can it be other than God-given? Can it be acquired through marriage or noble deeds, bartered or even sold outright? Does the possession of a soul make one's life easier or more difficult, one's moral decisions clearer or more complex? [...]

    14. Das kommt davon, wenn gleich sich nicht zu gleich gesellt, wenn Mensch und Meerfräulein ein wunderliches Bündnis schließenDie Liebe überschreitet alle Grenzen - der reiche Ritter Huldbrand, Schlossbesitzer, lernt auf einem unfreiwilligen Zwischenstop das arme Fischermädchen Undine kennen, und entbrennt sofort in Liebe zu ihr. Wenn es doch die einzige Grenzüberschreitung wäre"Undine" ist eine recht gelungene Mischung aus klassischer Gothic Novel und Hauffs Märchen - mal fühlt man sich in [...]

    15. My wonderful, awesome boyfriend got me a copy of this book from 1909, illustrated by Arthur Rackham, for Christmas. It's become one of my most prized possessions. It is beautifully written (or translated, I suppose I should say) and of course, stunningly illustrated. I consider it a masterful example of the literary fairytale. I like the story of Undine better than Hans Christian Anderson's "The Little Mermaid" for a number of reasons, though it features with very similar plot elements and theme [...]

    16. Undine Okay, I feel like one of those people who go, "omg, the Glee cover was WAY better than the original", but I read Jean Giraudoux's Ondine when I was a child, and re-read it a thousand times since, plus I watched the wonderful comédie-française production, starring a young Isabelle Adjani, so it's fair to say I'm a little bit obsessed with Giraudoux's take on the story. I guess since that story is practically set in stone in my mind, when I got to the original by Motte Fouqué, every pa [...]

    17. I'm just fascinated by the 'elemental creatures without souls' theme in folk and fairy tales, and so I adored this. Beautifully written if a bit weak in plot. The descriptions of Kuhleborn were particularly memorable, and he was probably the most fascinating character of the story, although I liked Undine in the beginning also. This work has a lot to say, quite unintentionally, about gender and marriage. Easily comparable with HCA's The Little Mermaid.

    18. The permise and plot was interesting but the execution kinda suffered from a lack of substance.Sure Undine and the knight were good as a couple but the implication of a love triangle was a turning off my interest.Parts of this novella are pretty great though.The ending sure is creepy but makes up for the weak points.

    19. A wicked tale about a 'water spirit' who marries a knight, claiming to love him unconditionally, in order to claim his soul. Includes all the elements of a scary classic. A seemingly haunted forest, a house in a really deserted area, a storm, horses, a castle, and the likes of such

    20. Eski masalları sevenler beğenir. Hoş bir kitaptı.Undine`nin bir insanı sevip ruha kavuşması ve sonra gelişen olaylarla da sevdiğinden ayrılması anlatılıyor. Tabi bu özet hali. hüzünlü bir hikaye.:{

Dichos pescadores perdieron a su hija o la dieron por perdida debido a que cuando era joven se les ahogo en el rio por accidente. Ondina viene y se presenta como una niña misteriosa, la cual, no sabe nada de si misma solo su nombre. Después de varios años, el caballero Huldbrand llega ala casa de los [...]

    22. "In der Stille der tiefer dunkelnden Nacht, aus der das Gewitter immer ferner und schweigsamer abdonnerte, in dem behaglichen Gefühl der Sicherheit und des bequemen Fortkommens entspann sich zwischen Huldbrand und Bertalda ein trauliches Gespräch. Mit schmeichelnden Worten schalt er sie um ihr trotziges Flüchten; mit Demut und Rührung entschuldigte sie sich, und aus allem, was sie sprach, leuchtete es hervor, gleich einer Lampe, die dem Geliebten zwischen Nacht und Geheimnis kundgibt, die Ge [...]

    23. Der Ritter Huldbrand von Ringstettet muss, um einen Handschuh als Liebespfand seiner angebeteten Bertalda, der Pflegetochter des Herzogs, einen Wald durchqueren, in dem es Spuken soll und Bertalda anschießend berichten, welchen Wesen er begegnet ist. Am Ende des Waldes, kurz bevor die Nacht einbricht, kommt Huldbrand an einen Landspitze auf der ein altes Fischerpaar mit ihrer Findeltochter Undine lebt. Die Achtzehnjährige Undine ist eine Schönheit und ein wahrer Wildfang, sie verzaubert Huldb [...]

    24. I learned of "Undine" from "Little Women" by Louisa May Alcott because Jo was saying she wanted to buy this book.Aside from "Anne of Green Gables", this book is the only book that I have read again and again (and again). I'll admit, the first time I read the book there was a lot I didn't understand especially the poem at the beginning but when I read it for the second time, I just came to love it! And after reading the book for the second time then reading the poem then, suddenly it all made sen [...]

    25. What a strange little story. I ordered a copy of the book because I'm interested in the Ashton ballet Ondine, which is loosely based on it. (A DVD of the ballet will be available in the US in May, although it's not the old recording of Margot Fonteyn that I'm dying to see based on this clip.)I'm glad I started with the written version of the story. It's a fairy tale, and the characterization lacks detail and sometimes feels inconsistent. Still, I like Undine a lot, especially at the beginning wh [...]
