Carl Werner, an Imaginative Story
With Other Tales of Imagination
William Gilmore Simms
William Gilmore Simms's "Carl Werner" is set in the deepest parts of the German forest, based on an ancient legend. The narrator and his friend discuss ghost stories, which are birthed out of the solitude of country life (set against the counterpart of the city's unbelief and "warring strifes") that fosters belief in superstition.
