About This Book
"No amount of wisdom could possibly make sense of the mysterious verdict which God intended through this duel."
A new translation of a key work by one of European literature's most important early writers.
One of the few novellas written by the master German playwright, The Duel was considered by Thomas Mann and others to be one of the great works of German literature. The story of a virtuous woman slandered by a nobleman, it is a precise study of a subject that fascinated von Kleist: That people are sometimes seemingly punished for their very innocence.
