Excerpt from Tales of Humour and Romance: Selected From Popular German Writers Ch, at present Hoffman is all the rage in Germany, and this tale is no bad specimen of the writer's style, for in it may be traced an imitation of our historical Novel, a species of composition which the works of the Great Unknown have brought into vogue as much in Germany as in England. I was in Berlin when this tale was published - the character of Rene Car? Dillac, like other things, was a day's wonder, '-the Critics, however, thought that if the Author had kept more to the history of the period, it would have been better - too much of the apothecary of Mantua.
