Item description for The Bachelors by Adalbert Stifter & David Bryer...

Victor leaves the home of his foster mother to take his job in another town but stops on a remote island to visit his uncle who he has never met. Surrounded by an atmosphere of death and decay, Victor and his uncle symbolise opposite attitudes to life and their existential effects: stillness and movement, light and dark, openness and withdrawal.

Publishers Description

After gaining his first job in another town, Victor must leave the home of his foster mother and venture into the world. Amidst his travels Victor stops on a remote island to visit his estranged uncle, whom he has never met. Surrounded by an atmosphere of death and decay, Victor and his uncle come to symbolize opposite attitudes toward life in this remarkable piece of Romantic fiction. Ultimately Victor balances the differences between himself and the old man who has never known love, and chooses his a new path that is filled with hope.
