Description
Held captive by Russian soldiers, the Marquise is rescued before they can rape her, but a few months later, she finds herself pregnant, in this novelette by Heinrich von Kleist (1777–1811). Insisting upon her innocence, although failing to convince her prudish family of her honor, the Marquise places an advertisement asking the perpetrator to identify himself so that she can marry him; the answer to the puzzle will surprise them all. A noted playwright in his own era, Kleist is today better known for his surprisingly modern short stories, which unsparingly—and often ironically—depict the brutality of human nature. The title piece is accompanied here by the tales "The Earthquake in Chile" and "The Foundling."
