Nothing goes as planned as additional characters come in and wear the vicar’s suits and no one can tell who the real vicar is.

An Analysis Of Heinrich Heine's Dramatic Works: "Almansor" And "William Ratcliff", Marianne Anderson

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

The mass of words written about the German poet and prose writer Heinrich Heine (1?97-1856) is intimidating. He is considered to be one of the most controversial and paradoxical authors of the Western literature, an enigmatic figure among German writers, and the only German writer between Goethe and Thomas Mann to achieve during his lifetime a reputation beyond the bounds of German-speaking countries. He has been termed "the pioneer of radical political literature, an eccentric poet." His works became a milestone of German thought.
