A Harvest of German Verse

Excerpt from A Harvest of German Verse: Selected and Translated A new anthology of German lyric verse in English should be a matter of rejoicing to those who look to literature for revelation of national feeling and character. For of all forms of literature, lyric poetry has revealed German national character most directly and fully. Surely, there have been great manifestations of the German spirit in the epic and the drama. Faithfulness unto death, persistence in love and hatred, unflinching courage, and grim heroism have seldom been brought out in figures as grand and impressive as the colossal figures of the Nibelungenlied. And nowhere is there to be found a finer embodiment of German enlightenment than Nathan der Weise, of German earnestness and depth than Wallenstein, of German idealism than Iphigenie, or of the German striving for completeness of personality than Faust. And yet it must be said that neither the German epic nor the German drama, as a whole, have been as truly typical of German character as the bulk of German lyrics has been. The German temper is essentially lyric. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
