The Town beside the Sea
Theodor Storm felt a lifelong connection to his hometown Husum. The cityscape exerted a peculiar charm on the poet. He turned houses that had belonged to his mother’s ancestors into the settings of novellas. As well as houses that he lived in himself.
“It is just a small ordinary town, my birthplace; it lies on a flat treeless coastal plain and its houses are old and grey. Yet I’ve always thought of it as a pleasent place.”
In St. Jürgen, 1868
