Write The First Customer Review

This is a biography of the poet whose reputation moves between two extremes and is proclaimed by many to be Germany's greatest female poet, yet is little known outside Germany. The author attempts to place her in the current of the German Post-Romantic era and analyses her works in their literary context. He shows how the popular view of the writer hopelessly confuses her life and works in a tangle of myth and legend and also includes some special translations of excerpts from the poems.
