In his masterpiece, the story High Forest, Adalbert Stifter describes the love of two sisters at the time of the Thirty Years’ War. At their father’s behest, Johanna and Clarissa seek refuge in the seclusion of the deep forests because the times are uncertain and summer lightning flickers on the horizon. Yet the shivers of war shake even the twin dreams of youth and first love, and an inexorable destiny plays out in the High Forest.
