      I read this rather no very creepy tale years ago, and while I truly enjoyed and above all appreciated E T A Hoffmann s Der Sandmann, I also do not much feel like a detailed and intense rereading at this time, as the plot, the thematics actually repeatedly produced some rather vivid and glaring nightmares when I perused it, first for a German Romanticism course in undergrad and then later for my PhD Comprehensive Examinations I still recall that there were dancing mechnical maniacal dolls, and a [...]

      If, like a bold painter, you had first sketched in a few audacious strokes the outline of the picture you had in your own soul, you would then easily have been able to deepen and intensify the colors one after the other, until the varied throng of living figures carried your friends away and they, like you, saw themselves in the midst of the scene that had proceeded out of your own soul We had to read The Sandman for our literature seminar I was looking forward to it I had never read anything by [...]

      The work of a genius Very creepy and enjoyable to read, but at the same time extremely intelligent and multilayered.

      The antiquated language and over wrought prose on offer here will likely turn off some readers I don t necessarily prefer this sort of writing, and I don t care to read it terribly often despite my enchantment with classic horror and speculative fiction However, part of me enjoys these elements at the same time as finding them hard to tolerate when I am not in the mood for them Rather a contradiction, but there you have it There s something about the way this taste of antiquity takes me back in [...]

      Original review posted hereThere is absolutely no reason for people to avoid reading this story First of all, it s short about 30 pages and the ones I read were TINY pages Secondly, it s so freaking amazing Seriously Read it Now I ll tell you why.For my Seminar in European Literature this semester we are studying the uncanny what the word means, how to define it ourselves, how it s defined in stories, and we re reading all sorts of fantastic things like Grimm s Fairy Tales, Freud s essays, and o [...]

      Nathanael s childhood is haunted by the mysterious figure of Coppelius, a lawyer friend of his father who regularly turns up at their house for night time alchemical sessions Nathanael associates Coppelius with the mythical Sandman, the legendary being said to steal the eyes of children who refuse to go to sleep When Nathanael s father dies as a result of an experiment gone wrong, this ominous mental link is sealed once and for all Years later, with Nathanael now a university student, unwelcome [...]

      About the title story onlyE.T.A HOFFMANN, The Sandman 1816 Remarkably modern feeling in theme, probably because lately we ve had quite a few writers harking back to this kind of story The sinister traveling merchant Coppelius Coppola, selling his eyes a is reflected in Ilse, Who Saw Clearly by E Lily Yu, for example And of course, the whole steampunk genre loves to explore the idea of clockwork automata.To a modern reader, the structure of the story flows a bit oddly and unevenly, and the langua [...]

      There is no Sandman, dear child, replied my mother When I say the Sandman s coming, I only mean that you re sleepy and can t keep your eyes open just as if sand had been sprinkled into them There is something very special in the tales of E.T.A Hoffmann two centuries have gone but they still remain enigmatic, startling and morosely nocturnal And now Nathaniel saw that a pair of eyes lay upon the ground, staring at him these Spalanzani caught up, with his unwounded hand, and flung into his bosom T [...]

      Un cuento de terror curioso por los temas que trata, que parecen una mezcla imposible de elementos que se interrelacionan para cobrar vida con la imaginaci n de E T A Hoffmann No lo rese ar en profundidad porque es corto, pero puede decirse mucho El protagonista es Nataniel, un muchacho que estudia F sica y escribe unas cartas extra as a su amigo Lotario le cuenta que la visi n de un hombre le hizo recordar una vieja leyenda de su infancia y un acontecimiento traum tico que involucra al Hombre d [...]

      what did I just read This is so many kinds of disturbing that nightmares are inevitable How ironic.I freaking loved it, by the way.For a short story, there s several layers of creepy, and there s no black and white so part of its genius is in how many questions you re left with at the end.I want to know MORE.I mean, surely we ve all heard of The Sandman, right The creep who throws dust in children s faces to get them to sleep Well,this delightful little short story, along with my fascination wit [...]

      If you were to read only one story by E.T.A Hoffman this might be it The Sandman is one of the three tales to figure in Jacques Offenbach great opera and presents in a very forceful fashion several of the great themes that dominate Hoffman s work.In this work, Hoffman poses third great questions The first is what is the effect of childhood fears on our later lives The second one is why do some individuals pursue illusions when better options in the real world are at hand The last question is why [...]

      Oh my dearly beloved Nathaniel Don t you think that even cheerful unaffected carefree nature like mine could harbour an inkling of a dark force that insidiously strives to corrupt the sanctum of our inner self Esta breve pieza del romanticismo oscuro germ nico escrita por Hoffmann posee los ingredientes m nimos de un relato decente y disfrutable a nivel est tico y narrativo Tambi n resulta interesante ver ya algunos indicios de romance cient fico con ese elemento femenino convenientemente introd [...]

      I really enjoyed this I ve never read anything by E.T.A Hoffmann before the Sandman is part of my assigned reading for a class I m taking this semester but it was a really good read Reminded me of Frankenstein in a lot of places Nathanael s actions and letters basically screamed Victor Frankenstein to me as well as the origin of him and Clara s relationship especially with the whole how far can we go with science and technology in terms of humanity thing that Olimpia represented The ambiguity in [...]

      Weit seiner Zeit voraus So ging es zumindest mir beim Lesen von E.T.A Hoffmanns ber hmtesten Werk Es ist gespickt mit einer Unzahl von Motiven, Montagen und Andeutungen, die die Lekt re dieses Buches sehr lohnend machen Durch die vielen gruseligen Motive, von denen einige immer noch Horror Geschichten und Filme heutzutage bestimmen, wirkt das Buch sehr zeitlos und modern Einige Szenen konnten mich immer wieder gruseln obwohl das Buch nun schon 200 Jahre alt ist Ein schauriges Must Read.

      La prima parte del racconto costituita da tre lettere che Nathaniel invia a Lotario e Clara Nathaniel uno studente universitario che, in quel momento, non vive in casa con la madre ma vive in un altra citt per completare gli studi universitari di tipo scientifico e segue le lezioni del professor Spallanzani Lotario e Clara, rimasti orfani in giovane et , vivono con la madre di Nathaniel che era una lontana parente che li ha accolti in casa E Nathaniel fidanzato con Clara Il padre di Nathaniel mo [...]

      4,5 SterneIch glaube, Der Sandmann war in der Oberstufe meine Lieblingslekt re und weil es au erdem auch so sch n einfach ist, habe ich es jetzt in der Uni als Referatsthema genommen und heute fr h in der S Bahn nochmal gelesen.Es hat mir immer noch sehr gut gefallen, ist trotz seiner K rze sehr spannend und vor allem die Figur des Sandmanns hat mich glaube ich nachhaltig beeindruckt Ich w rde dieses Buch so, so gerne mit 500 statt nur 50 Seiten lesen das ist allerdings gar kein wirklicher Kriti [...]

      I am a German native and used to the style this book was written However, I did read it in English and have to say this was an excellent translation.The story itself suited my taste in creepy books It started with the letters written to Nathaniel s friend Lothar It made me curious how Hoffmann will unravel the story and if he chose to have a happy ending At times I felt Stephen King might have borrowed from him, since it reminded me a bit of his stories.An entertaining short story with a deeper [...]

      Una lectura curiosa, sin duda Me result graciosa, si se me permite escribir tal palabra, cierta idea idea que sin duda robar para hac rsela llegar a mis posibles hijos.

      God bless the author Habt keine Angst vor dieser Schullekt re, denn sie ist weder in Dialogform geschrieben noch sehr lang Meine Reclam Ausgabe hat weniger als 50 Seiten und eigentlich sind nur 40 Seiten davon die Geschichte Insofern hat das Buch einen verdammten Pluspunkt Andererseits mag ich die Hauptperson nicht gerade, weil das beabsichtigt ist w rde ich meinen es ist noch okay Als unsere Lehrerin meinte, seid nicht verwirrt, wenn ihr denkt, ihr habt irgendwas verpasst oder ihr versteht es n [...]

      Great fantastic story telling by a troubled man Science and technology versus magic, madness, life and death key themes from this Romantic period German author Who is really sane And whom can you trust Eyeglasses, telescopes, mirrors, and other optically refractive devices abound as symbols of the inescapbability of perspective in observation nothing can be viewed directly or understood objectively and without bias And automatons another key period device are present as technology begins to blur [...]

      I have long feared reading books by E.T.A Hoffmann, as his alias sounds rather off putting and pompously self centred which I really don t like in writers And also because my terrible German teacher LOVES E.T.A Hoffmann Then, a good friend who I trust a lot when it comes to books recommended me the Sandman, and I thus decided to follow his example and read it, and I really don t regret it The language E.T.A used is beautiful, the book is kinda creepy and has the kind of happily ever after that I [...]

      uvenu Hofmanovu noveletu sam prvi put pro itao krajem devedesetih dopala mi se, veoma, ali je vreme izbrisalo sve sem tog op teg utiska Sada sam je podsetio zbog filma koji Dario Ar ento treba da po njoj snimi Svakako da se rado o va nom i kvalitetnom delu, ali moram priznati da sam pomalo razo aran Dosta toga je ostalo samo u naznakama, ima i naivnosti Bez obzira na nedostatke toplo preporu ujem svima koje zanima horor.

      Ich muss sagen, ich fand es erstaunlich gut f r ein Buch, das man in der Schule lesen muss und von dem ich viel Schlechtes geh rt habe Hier und da etwas verwirrend, aber ich habe es sogar doch ganz gern gelesen Und das Ende war interessant D

      Deeply unsettling, disturbing and even terrifying in the darkness A weird story of childhood nightmares that come to life many years later.

      Honestly, I m not even sure what to make of The Sand Man at this point So, I won t post much of a review except to say that I found it kind of strange.
