*****

I have read this book in class and it is one of the best I have had the pleassure to read so far.
It is a political and social utopie.
A satire about the political developments in germany from 1813 till 1844.
Heine here mentions a utopie of a free and united Europe.
Sadly the expert it porley chosen it is one of the less interestin Caputs of the 27.

I can only recommend anyone who is interested in literatur and history to read this book.
