Effi Briest is steered into marriage with a man twenty years her senior, and taken to live in a remote Baltic seaport. Isolated and bored, she drifts into an affair, which is quickly ended. Years later the past catches up with Effi, with profound consequences. Fontane's masterpiece, the novel is an acute portrait of Prussian society.
