Up next: Dr. Erlis Wickersham lectures on E.T.A. Hoffmann

On Wednesday, November 6, 2019 at 1:30pm in the Winsor Room, Dr. Erlis Wickersham returns to Radnor Memorial Library to present a lecture on the short stories of E.T.A. Hoffmann. Wickersham will emphasize why the author chose the fantasy form and discuss the origins of the dark psychological themes of his works.

Ernst Theodor Wilhelm Hoffmann (January 24, 1776-June 25, 1822), better known by his pen name E.T.A. Hoffmann, was a Romantic author of fantasy and horror, a jurist, composer, draftsman and caricaturist. He was one of the key authors of the Romantic Movement and his most familiar story, Nutcracker and Mouse King (1816), was the basis for Tchaikovsky’s ballet, The Nutcracker (1892).
