The story of young Henry, who struggles to fulfill his ambitions to become a successful painter and is torn between the gentle Anna and the proud and sensual Judith, is one of the most outstanding and personal Bildngsromane written in the German language. Written between 1846 and 1855, Keller's poetic, semi-autobiographical novel draws on the author's own youth, artistic studies and development as a man, as well as providing a comprehensive portrait of his country and his times 'Green Henry' is one of the most important novels in European literature, and undoubtedly the greatest masterpiece of fiction by a Swiss writer.
