Description

A Fine, bright, Superior copy of this later printing, in Fine example of the SCARCE dust jacket (some modest soiling), housed in the EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE ORIGINAL PUBLISHER'S SLIPCASE (some staple repairs to the slipcase). One of the most significant German Poets of his era whose radical political views led to many of his works being banned by German authorities, Heine spent the last 25 years of his life as an expatriate in Paris. In 1848, Heine fell ill, perhaps from multiple sclerosis or syphilis, and was rendered blind, paralyzed, and in constant pain. Thus afflicted, he returned to poetry, writing some of the bleakest and most heartbreaking verses ever rendered in the German language. These poems were collected in the volumes Romanzero in 1851, and Gedichte 1853 und 1854 (Poems: 1853 and 1854), and they are now considered by critics to be his greatest achievements. Having 232 numbered pages, this publication of Romancero is, as was the first edition, divided into three sections, namely Erstes Buch: Historien ("First Book: Histories"), Zweites Buch: Lamentationen ("Second Book: Lamentations"), Drittes Buch: Hebräische Melodien ("Third Book: Hebrew Melodies"). All of Poet, Journalist, Essayist, and Literary Critic, Heine is best known outside of Germany for his early lyric poetry, some of which was set to music in the form of Lieder by composers such as Robert Schumann and Franz Schubert. A REMARKABLE COPY IN THE ORIGINAL DUST JACKET AND PUBLISHER'S SLIPCASE.
