Irrungen WirrungenDes Sommers kommen sich die beiden näher Doch der große Standesunterschied erweist sich als Hindernis für ihre Liebe Summary by Wikiped. My version of the German classic novel by Theodor Fontane Irrungen Wirrungen was the Penguin edition translated by Peter James Bowman titled On Tangled Paths though other versions of the novel have it listed as Trials Tribulations I enjoyed reading this prime example of German Realism but confess that I probably enjoyed reading about the author's life far than dealing with his 1888 novel The book deals with the doomed love affair between a titled but less than affluent cavalry officer and a young beautiful seamstress a bond that transgressed class lines was considered immoral as well though such relationships were not uncommon at the timeThe story occurs at a time of change when the middle class in Berlin its environs was becoming much potent while the aristocracy was on the defensive The working class is also represented in Fontane's tale and the component of social diversity seemed most welcome One did get a sense of societal transition as Botho the cavalry officer in a prestigious regiment Lene a seamstress seem nicely matched emotionally very much in love initially without much outsider interference but we uickly learn that while Lene is completely realistic in her appraisal of their relationship Botho is rather weak willed and the reality of his situation has to be pointed out to him by his mother For if he continues in the relationship with the lovely Lene Botho will most certainly lose his family connections his standing within his aristocratic circle his future opportunities and even his position with the regiment uite without much action or attention on Botho's part he becomes engaged to an upper class woman named Kathe someone with a pleasant demeanor and from a family with considerable means but phrasing in the vernacular of today a bit of an airhead Alas for those pining for a continued loving bond between Botho Lene but without the Elvira Madigan ending Fontane refused to play along with his readers In comparing the Fontane novel to Balzac for example I confess to being drawn in by Balzac's characters but kept at a distance by those in this well regarded period novel by Fontane The folks who inhabit Balzac's tales in mid 19th century Paris seem palpable even familiar while those within On Tangled Paths struck me as remaining at a distance in part because Fontane loads the passages with references to specific restaurants types of food inns spas the effluvia of Fontane's Berlin at a particular point in time keeping the reader at something of a remove from the story Yes there are footnotes aplenty for each of the explicit references all of which would have been clear to a reader at the time the book appeared but which interrupt the flow of the tale However I very much enjoyed the interplay among those of different classes the sense of social stratification but within a seemingly informal setting Most of the cavalry representing various regiments each with their own colors levels of prestige seem to sit around the cafes playing cards drinking for it is apparently a time between the intermittent the wars with Austria France Britain Lene was for me the most captivating character in the Fontane novel someone who just seems to remain above the fray She was happy utterly happy saw the whole world in a rosy light She had the best the dearest of men on her arm was enjoying a precious moment with him Was that not enough And if this moment should be their last well so be it Was she not favoured just to live through such a day Even if it was only once this one single time And so all the intimations of hurt anxiety that despite her best efforts had occasionally oppressed her spirits melted away all she felt was pride joy thankfulnessThe eventual rift that befalls Lene Botho does come at a price so for Botho than for Lene with the former declaring What can I personally learn from this A man who goes with the grain may fall but he falls in a better way than a man who goes against it However a bit later Botho intones to a fellow officer facing a similar situation Many things are permissible but not what does violence to the soul or entangles the heart even if it's your only way On Tangled Paths by Theodor Fontane is a rather charming somewhat diverting little book I read as a part of an AlumniContinuing Ed course at Northwestern University entitled Love In Out of Marriage is my first exposure to the author A uite interesting essay about Fontane by Daniel Mendelson Heroine Addict What Theodore Fontane's Women Want appeared in the March 7th 2011 issue of The New Yorker available via the Internet at least for subscribers to the magazine
