"This is the saddest story," the narrator notes of his friend Edward Ashburham's life.

Der Wunderbrunnen : Roman by Henry James( Book )

3 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in German and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Durante la última de sus estancias de fin de semana en la gran mansión Newmarch, en la campiña inglesa, el narrador de esta historia tiene ocasión de observar asombrosas transformaciones en algunos de los huéspedes: una mujer fea se ha vuelto inexplicablemente bella, un joven ha envejecido de forma exagerada, un imbécil exhibe una inteligencia deslumbrante..., en definitiva, unos mejoran mientras otros empeoran. El protagonista espía y analiza estos fenómenos, tratando de encontrar la clave del enigma en una supuesta serie de misteriosos intercambios de fuerza vital. La fontana sagrada es una de las últimas obras que escribió Henry James, y sin duda se trata de una de las novelas más insólitas y originales de la literatura moderna. Fue escrita no mucho después de Otra vuelta de tuerca, de la cual es una especie de complemento o pieza gemela. Ambas tienen en común el mismo telón de fondo de una gran mansión aislada del mundo exterior, los mismos parajes de una belleza triste y extraña, acontecimientos parejamente furtivos y turbadores dentro de una atmósfera de luminosidad y brillo, y un narrador en primera persona que se enfrenta a prodigios no comprobables científicamente
