Front Cover - The Four Seasons


Sintram and His Companions, Undine, The Two Captains

& Aslauga’s Knight (#1-4)


By Friedrich de la Motte Fouqué

Translated by Fanny Elizabeth Bunnett

Adapted by Rachel Louise Lawrence


These four tales were intended by the Author to be appropriate to the Four Seasons: the stern, grave “Sintram,” to winter; the tearful, smiling, fresh “Undine,” to spring; the torrid deserts of “The Two Captains,” to summer; and the sunset gold of “Aslauga’s Knight,” to autumn. Find all four tales in this omnibus volume, “The Four Seasons.”


Winter: “Sintram and His Companions”

From boyhood, Sintram must battle between the violent customs fostered by his father and the pious lifestyle adopted by his mother


Spring: “Undine, The Water Sprite”

An elemental being marries a human, the Knight Huldbrand, in order to gain a soul.


Summer: “The Two Captains”

The friendship of German Captain, Sir Heimbert of Waldhausen, and Spanish Captain, Don Frederigo Mendez, is tested by love and war.


Autumn: “Aslauga's Knight”

Ghosts and witches, magic and combat, abound in this knightly tale of chivalrous love and friendship.
