Preface discovery of contradictions. Sharp, in particular, wound up his book with a rapt appreciation, ending in a flourish of rhetorical trumpets, and concluded the matter. But it needs something more than a list of antitheses to understand this restless genius, a confusing figure who has been paired with such names as Catullus, A ristophanes, Burns, Rabelais, Cervantes, Voltaire, Swift, Villon in fact to every writer who is known as a master of either simplicity or irony. It needs a close and interpretive reading of his Book of Songs ;it needs a general knowledge of the politically experimental and altogether chaotic times of which he was so fiery a product; and it needs, first and last, the constant reminder that Heine was a sensitive Jew, born in a savagely anti-semitic country that taught him, even as a child, that Jew and pariah were synonymous terms.
