It is an illuminating introduction to one of Europe's finest novelists. "It is an excellent idea to guide readers through the novels by way of focusing on the landscapes. James Bade brings an enormous amount of material into the discussion and is always detailed and precise. The book reads very well and enriches the Fontane literature." - Professor Christian Grawe, University of Melbourne. "Eminently readable and full of excellent insights." - Professor John Alexander, Arizona State University. "The book brings out the symbolic meaning and arrangements of locations and landscapes very clearly - I really hope that it will be read by students who are discovering Fontane." - Professor Dirk Göttsche, University of Nottingham.
