Born in Königsberg, UsefulNotes/{{Prussia}} (today Kaliningrad, UsefulNotes/{{Russia}}), he became a lawyer, following the family tradition, though without much enthusiasm, as he was drawn to music, literature and the arts. He entered a career as a civil servant in Prussian UsefulNotes/{{Poland}}, held a position in Warsaw and had a young wife, when, in the course of NapoleonicWars, French troops captured the city in 1806 and forced the Prussian administration to flee.

* UnbuiltTrope: ''Tomcat Murr'' seems almost [[PostModernism postmodern]] to present-time readers due to its extensive irony, unusual form of two-novels in one (of which one has AnachronicOrder as well NoEnding), and [[WorldOfHam over-the-top characterization]].

* BunnyEarsLawyer: His character [[AuthorAvatar Johannes Kreisler]], a genius musician and composer but also [[CrazyAwesome legitimately insane]] and downright antisocial. ** Hoffmann qualifies as well. His writing style was highly innovative, but authors like Creator/JohannWolfgangVonGoethe couldn't wrap his head around his works. By his superiors, Hoffmann's character was described as "irresponsible and dangerous", likely as a payback since Hoffmann was a sharp critic of established social conventions.

* MagicRealism: Many of his stories combine fantastic elements with realism.
