About the Author

E. T. A. Hoffman wore many hats, among them are those of a playwright, composer, music critic, and more. He wrote this novella, originally titled The Nutcracker and the Mouse King, in 1816, and it is among his most notable works. Hoffman's influence played a crucial role in the Romantic literary movement in the nineteenth century, and his works have been heavily adapted and analyzed by the likes of notables such as Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, Robert Schumann, and Sigmund Freud. Hoffman passed away at the age of forty-six in 1822.
