The Sandman

The Sandman (1816)

E. T. A. Hoffmann

Gripping tale of a student driven to the point of madness by his obsession with what, for him, is the childhood fantasy of the Sandman incarnate. The story takes a fascinating turn as the young man returns to his studies and falls in love with a beautiful but oddly silent girl. Unusual and creepy.
