The Tragic Demise of a Faithful Court Official

The Tragic Demise of a Faithful Court Official

By Fritz von Herzmanovsky-Orlando
Translated by David A, Veeder 

Herzmanovsky-Orlando's 1928 novel The Tragic Demise of a Faithful Court Official tells of the romantic entanglements, inexorable decline, and subsequent tragicomic death of the rigid and proper Biedermeier bureaucrat Jaromir Edler von Eynhuf. In his unwavering efforts to gain the attention of his beloved Emperor Franz I and to further his career, Eynhuf loses sight of all propriety and embarks on an irreversible path of obsession leading into the netherworld of the diva Hoellteufel and to his eventual ruination.
