Abstract

Monatshefte, Vol. 109, No. 3, 2017 much about other intellectuals of the time, frequent mentions of later episodes in Schlegel’s life (but without specific page/chapter references), and other digressions, necessary as they may be (for example the Schlegels’ relationship with Schiller and Goethe). Then again, the reader will appreciate the inclusion of poems and excerpts from Schlegel’s own writings, frequently incorporating Paulin’s own interpretations (e.g., 149–150). And he does not neglect to explain other aspects of life in early nineteenth-century Europe, such as summarizing the status of Jewish intellectuals, like Moses Mendelssohn, or the general circumstances of the Jewish population in Berlin (110–115). Brief biographies of 110 contemporaries, from Ernst Moritz Arndt to Johann Georg Zimmer, complete the biography. In a volume like this, an index is indispensable. While it is extensive, one wishes it were even more detailed. Not all entries are subdivided into biographical and works references; for contemporaries like Ludwig Tieck, one will find the 120 page references unfortunate. In general, this biography is most useful for a cover-to-cover reading experience. Readers with specific interests might want to consult the free online version.
