Una antología formada por ocho relatos poco conocidos del duo alsaciano, Émile Erckmann y Alexandre Chatrian.
Cuentos de las orillas del Rin es uno de los libros menos conocidos de Émile Erckmann y Alexandre Chatrian. Su propuesta es un viaje en el tiempo, al mundo rural de las dos márgenes del gran río del norte de Europa, a las ciudades que durante generaciones amalgamaron lo alemán y lo francés, a regiones donde el vino empieza a no ser blanco y l. a. cerveza se elabora con nuevas recetas.
Si bien el dúo Erckmann-Chatrian cosechó en su época más fortuna con historias macabras o directamente fantásticas, los ocho relatos que forman este volumen no dejan de poseer un elemento misterioso y siniestro, así como cierto matiz ambiguamente sobrenatural.
«Me sentiría ingrato si no dijera que algunos de sus relatos me han deleitado y alarmado durante años.»

And approximately "dancers" possessed by way of the eagerness to be obvious, for whom lifestyles is in basic terms a perpetual exhibit emptied of each intimacy and each joy.
