The 1997 London Heine Conference brought together leading scholars and critics from Austria, Britain and Germany. The essays collected in this volume offer a broad canvas of Heine's themes and techniques, his debts and his influence, the ancient and modern connections of his work, its epic and lyrical forms, materials and comparisons drawn from English, German, Russian, Jewish and Islamic sources, and the musical settings of his poems. Complementing recent scholarship, much of which has explored Heine's theoretical and other prose works, these essays give substantial attention once more to his poetry, and demonstrate what an inexhaustible topic it is. The contributors are: Joseph A Kruse, David Constantine, Ritchie Robertson, Hartmut Steinecke, Nigel Reeves, Roger Paulin, Hubert Lemgauer, Edward Timms, Alexander Stillmark, Tony Phelan, Hans Höller, Peter Branscombe and T J Reed.
