No doubt it was founded on the universal idea in folk-lore of the nixies or water-spirits, one of whom, in Norwegian legend, was seen weeping bitterly because of the want of a soul. He protects Undine and threatens anyone who might harm her. The story reminds many readers of The Little Mermaid, in that Undine losses some of her powers as a water-spirit when she marries, only to regain them later in the book. Undine was popular in the 19th century.
