Unterwegs gelesen. Unterbrechungen. Diese bitter-bösen Strophen: laut gesprochen sollen sie! Gut gelesen von Risse
Auch sehr sehenswert die Aufzeichnung der SWR Sendung vom 18.1.2006 „Der Fall Heine“

Heinrich Heine einer der bedeutensten Dichter Deutschlands und dies stellt ohne zweifel eines seiner besten Werke dar. Kritisch, originell und zeitlos, kein Wunder das es bei der "Obrigkeit" immer wieder Angst und Schrecken hervorgerufen hat. ( )

Da reist ich Deutschland hinüber.

Book description
Written four years before the 1848 Revolution, Heine's Deutschland can be enjoyed as a funny read. In this "verse travelogue" Heine comments on the homeland he sees again after years of exile. Bull's-eyeing a number of targets--bourgeois lethargy, rampant Prussianism, phoney medievalism, German idealist philosophy--Europe's wittiest poet delightfully introduces the reader to "Germany's current ferment"--and to the idea that the value system of the German middle class helped to maintain social injustice and political oppression.
