Readers of Miss Lagerlof will observe that in this, her latest book, _The Girl from the Marsh Croft, _ the Swedish author has abandoned her former world of Romanticism and has entered the field of Naturalism and Realism. This writer's romantic style is most marked, perhaps, in her first successful work, _Gosta Berling._ How _The Story of Gosta Berling_ grew, and the years required to perfect it, is told in the author's unique literary autobiography, _The Story of a Story, _ which is embodied in the present volume. In _The Girl from the Marsh Croft, _ Miss Lagerlof has courageously chosen a girl who had gone astray as the heroine of her love story, making her innate honesty and goodness the redemptive qualities which win for her the love of an honest man and the respect and esteem of a

When I see a stream like this in the wilderness, he thought, "I am reminded of my own life. As persistent as this stream have I been in forcing my way past all that has obstructed my path. Father has been my rock ahead, and mother tried to hold me back and bury me between moss-tufts, but I stole past both of them and got out in the world. Hay-ho, hi, hi! I think mother is still sitting at home and weeping for me. But what do I care! She might have known that I should amount to something some day, instead of trying to oppose me!"

West German cinema of the 1960s is frequently associated with the emergence of a new generation of filmmakers, collectively known by the 1970s as the "New German Cinema." Yet for domestic and international audiences at the time, German cinema primarily meant popular genres such as exotic adventure films, Gothic crime thrillers, westerns, and sex films, which were dismissed by German filmmakers and critics of the 1970s as "Daddy's Cinema." International Adventuresprovides the first comprehensive account of these genres, and charts the history of the West German film industry and its main protagonists from the immediate post-war years to its boom period in the 1950s and 1960s. By analyzing film genres in the context of industrial practices, literary traditions, biographical trajectories, and wider cultural and social developments, this book uncovers a forgotten period of German filmmaking that merits reassessment. International Adventuresfirmly locates its case studies within the wider dynamic of European cinema. In its study of West German cinema's links and co-operations with other countries including Britain, France, and Italy, the book addresses what is perhaps the most striking phenomenon of 1960s popular film genres: the dispersal and disappearance of markers of national identity in increasingly international narratives and modes of production. Tim Bergfelderis Head of Film Studies at the University of Southampton. He has published widely on German and European cinema, and is co-editor ofThe German Cinema Book(2002) andThe Titanic in Myth and Memory.
