CHRISTIAN LIEDTKE is the head archivist of the manuscript collection at the Heinrich-Heine-Institut, Düsseldorf, Germany, and current Max Kade Distinguished Visiting Professor at the University of Cincinnati, Ohio (USA). He has worked extensively on Heinrich Heine and German “Vormärz” literature, among his most recent publications are “Heinrich Heine. Ein ABC” (Hamburg 2015) and “Heinrich Heine: Katechismus” (Hamburg 2017). His lecture (in German) will present Heine’s lifelong discussion of Goethe’s works and personality with its literary, philosophical and political aspects. Sometimes poetic, sometimes polemical or comical, but always unique in style and substance, it illustrates Heine’s view of a modern German literature.
