Berlin: Fischer (1895).
The first edition of this cult classic (The Garden of Knowledge"), published when the author was only 19 years old. Leopold von Andrian zu Werburg (1875–1951) was an Austrian noblemen and the largely autobiographical novel tells the story of a young noblemen struggling with his homosexuality. Andrian's novel crystalizes the crisis of identity experienced by Austrian artists and intellectuals at the fin de siècle and was admired by Hugo von Hoffmanstahl and Stefan George.
