Storm, Theodor: The Rider on the White Horse. v1. 22 Mar 2012

Theodor Storm was one of the most important authors of 19th-century German Literary realism. He wrote a number of stories, poems and novellas. The novella "The Rider on the White Horse" is one of his most well-known works.

Quote:
In this masterpiece, Storm exhibits a man’s will in conflict, on one side, with unintelligent conservatism among his fellowmen and, on the other, with the forces of nature. The figure of the dike-master emerges from the double struggle with a fine impressiveness; and the tragedy which finally engulfs him and his family is profoundly moving. At the same time we are given a vivid picture of the landscape of the low-lying coast of the North Sea, with the ever-present menace of the flood tide; and the sternness of the action is tempered with glimpses of humor and a picture of warm affection.
This 1917 translation by Margarete Münsterberg was taken from "The Harvard Classics Shelf of Fiction - German Vol. XV" (Project Gutenberg EBook #34506)

(BTW, the German original is also available at MR.)
