Phantasiestücke in Callots Manier[1] (Eng: Fantasy Pieces in the Manner of Callot or Fantasy Pieces in Callot's Manner) (1814) is an anthology of previously published fantastic tales by E. T. A. Hoffmann, including The Devil's Elixirs and The Golden Pot. The inspiration, as the title implies, comes from the work of Jacques Callot of which he says:

"The irony which mocks man's miserable actions by placing man and beast in opposition to each other only dwells in a deep spirit, and thus Callot's grotesque figures, which are created from man and beast, reveal to the penetrating observer all the secret implications that lie hidden under the veil of the comical."
