Heinrich Theodor Fontane was a German writer who can be attributed to realism. He lived in Neuruppin from 30 December 1819 and died in Berlin on 20 September 1898. The federal state of Brandenburg has therefore proclaimed the Fontane Year for 2018. Under the motto Fontane 200, various events will take place throughout the year, which will take a look at the life of the famous author and also take a close look at his working methods.
After his training as a pharmacist, Fontane worked in the profession from 1840-1849, before he decided to start writing and work as a journalist for various newspapers. In 1892, the author fell ill with brain anaemia. However, he recovered from it and subsequently wrote his probably most famous work: Effi Briest. Many students will know the author precisely because of this book, which is considered the high point and turning point of the poetic realism of German literature.
