BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH 



Yottth. — Paul Heyse, one of the greatest of modem 
story-tellers, was born in Berlin on March 15, 1830. His 
father and grandfather were distinguished grammarians 
and teachers, while his mother was the daughter of a 
well-to-do Jewish family. At an early âge Heyse entered 
the Friedrich'Wilheltn Gymnasiutn in his native city, 
from which he graduated in 1847 with a good record, 
except in mathematics. As a school boy he had written 
some lyric poetry showing the influence of Heine, Eichen- 
dorff and Geibel, and had finished a tragedy called Don 
Juan de Padilla, 

At the University. — He then entered the University 
of Berlin and devoted himself mostly to classical philo- 
logy under Lachmann and Boeckh. But Kugler's lectures 
and personality attracted him to the history of art, and 
it was largely for this purpose that he entered the Univer- 
sity of Bonn in the spring of 1849. He even thought of 
writing his doctoral dissertation upon a related subject. 
In this beautiful old Rhine town he spent his flrst semes- 
ter rather in. becoming acquainted with men and things 
than in attending many lectures or studying many books. 
During the autumn vacation of his fîrst year at Bonn he 
made a ten days' foot-tour in Switzerland. What a vivid 



vi BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH 

impression it made upon him is seen in his autobiography. 
When he returned to Bonn, he took up his collège work 
more earnestly. Not being interested in KinkePs lectures 
on the history of painting or in Brandis's courses in 
aesthetics, he turned to the study of romance philology 
under the gifted Diez, who was then lecturing on Dante. 
He came under the influence also of the acute thinker 
Jacob Bernays, who directed him to a more careful study 
of Shakespeare, Gœthe and Spinoza. After two years' 
further study at Berlin, he secured his doctorate in May, 
1852, with a thesis entitled, Uber den Refrain in den 
Liedem der Troubadours, 

During his university days his literary activity in- 
créased a good deal. Besides some short epics and some 
Màrchen^ which he published^to help defray his collège 
expenses, he wrote a tragedy called Francesca von 
Riminiy at which the prudes made big eyes, a volume 
of translations of Spanish lyrics (in partnership with 
Geibel), and several short stories of which Marion is 
the best. 

A year in Italy. — In the summer of 1852 he was 
delighted at securing a stipend of five hundred thaler 
to go to Italy and copy the unpublished Provençal 
manuscripts. Fortunately his friend, Otto Ribbeck, later 
the distinguished classical scholar, had been commis- 
sioned by the Berlin Academy to colla te the Italian 
manuscripts for a new édition of Vergil. After brief but 
interesting visits at Milan, Genoa, Pisa, and Florence, 
the two friends arrived at Rome in October, 1852. Hère 
Heyse, rather against bis desires, lived in tbe bouse of 



BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH vii 

an eccentric and scholarly uncle. When Heyse went 
about his work of copying the unpublished Provençal 
manuscripts in the Vatican library, he was surprised to 
find that, while he might examine the manuscripts and 
make a few cursory notes, a library rule forbade his 
copying thera. This was a serions matter. The rilse he 
tried of having his Mahn*s édition of the troubadours 
interleaved with blank paper, so that he could copy thèse 
unpublished poems while pretending to make cursory 
notes in his book, failed and he was forbidden the privi- 
lèges of the library. He was permitted however to make 
copies of unprinted manuscripts in other Italian libraries. 
Besides enjoying thoroughly the Roman treasures of art 
and antiquities he was intensely interested in the Italian 
people. He mingled with them and studied the varions 
types with the eye of an artist. 

Early in the spring of 1853 he was seriously ill, but 
after partial recovery he and Ribbeck journeyed south 
to Naples and Sorrento, where the sunny Italian spring 
restored the young poet's health. It was hère on the 
famous island of Capri that he spent two weeks with 
Joseph Viktor von Schefïel, who was then working on his 
Trompeter von Sàkkingen. They read and worked and 
walked together, and became fast friends. It was hère 
that Heyse wrote his famous story of VArrabhiata^ 
whose characters he sketched from life as it moved 
before him. 

After another month in Rome he left with Ribbeck 
early in June, 1853, for a five weeks' stay in Florence, 
wbere manuscripts were tç bç examined ii) the librsuries, 



viii BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH 

Thèse were delightful days for Heyse, full of work ajid 
sightseeing and writing. Then came short visits àt 
Modena, Reggio, Parma, Mantua, with a week's stop at 
Verona, whence they went to Venice. In the library 
of St. Mark's Heyse found some very interesting old 
troubadour songs. Late in August they traveled rapidly 
through Tyrol to Germany, where Heyse met his parents 
and the family of his betrothed, Margarete Kugler, in the 
Palatinate. 

The Call to Munich. — When Heyse returned to Ber- 
lin in the autumn of 1853, he again took up his romance 
philology, looking toward an académie career, but he 
hoped to be able later to earn his bread entirely by his 
pen. In the foUowing March a letter came inviting hini 
to the court of the young art-loving king, Maximilian II 
of Bavaria, who offered him one thousand gulden a year 
to join the King*s Round Table of poets and artists. 
Geibel, who had been two years in Munich and had 
much influence with the king, had inspired this invita- 
tion. Heyse's short visit of inspection was satisfactory 
to him, and after being presented to Maximilian, the 
poet accepted the gênerons offer, returned to Berlin and 
was married on May 15, 1854, to Margarete Kugler. 
The young couple arrived in Munich a couple of weeks 
later, and Heyse laid before his new liège lord a copy of 
his VArrabbiata as a sample of what he could do. 

King Haximilian's Symposia. — Attendance at the 
king's symposia was about the only duty required of 
the members of this Round Table, except that each was 
of course expected to continue to produce. Thèse sym- 



BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH ix 

posia were more or less informai meetings, conforming 
however to the external requirements of court usage, in 
which the members read such of their own or of others' 
productions, as the king desired to bring up. A quite 
informai gênerai discussion followed, in which not ooly 
literature but also politics, science, music, architecture, 
etc., were talked over. Béer, wine, sandwiches and cigars 
were served. Thèse meetings were called every week or 
so by the king. During the first half ofthe year 1855 
no less than forty-three symposia were held. This wa& 
the Round Table of the so-called "Munich School" of 
poets, including Geibel, Bodenstedt, Heyse, Dingelstedt, 
Lingg, Grosse and Greif. In gênerai they stood for that 
careful considération of form that marks Geibel's lyrics. 
They show no great virility. Heyse was by far the most 
versatile of them ail. 

The poet was also a member of two literary clubs in 
his early Munich days, the first, called Die Ecke^ a sort 
of neighborhood meeting, which the ladies also attended, 
and the second, called Das Krokodil (from one of Lingg*s 
poems), a more unrestrained gathering, open only to men 
and meeting in one of the better béer gardens. Thèse 
clubs brought the poets and their acquain tances together 
for a free discussion of literary and other questions, and 
in spite of the hot-headed Geibel finally resulted in a 
better feeling between the local literary lights and their 
foreign brethren. Scheffel visited the Krokodil in the 
winter of 1857. 

Heyse and Ludwig II. — Heyse continued to enjoy 
the confidence and favor of King Maximilian II till the 



X BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH 

latter's death on March lo, 1862, when Ludwig II came 
to the throne. This eighteen year old youth continued 
the pensions to some of his father's literary favorites in- 
cluding Geibel and Heyse. But when in 1866 the royal 
patron became vexed at some of GeibePs verses in honor 
of William of Prussia on the occasion of the latter's visit 
to Liibeck, Geibel's birthplace, Ludwig II had the poet's 
pension eut off. Heyse at once gave up his, to the great 
offense of the king. Later they became reconciled, but 
Ludwig had meantime become interested in the great 
composer-poet Richard Wagner and " the art work of the 
future." The court influence of the "Munich school of 
poets" was dead. Most of the poets themselves had left 
Munich. 

Later Life. — But the Bavarian capital has remained 
Paul Heyse's home. Hère his children were born and 
died. Hère he wrote most of the works that hâve made 
him famous. His home at No. 22 Luisenstrasse is of the 
good old-fashioned style — low, broad house amidst trees 
and shrubs and flower gardens and a sunny lawn. Hère 
this remarkably well preserved man works and lives — 
alone, for ail of the friends of his youth and manhood 
hâve passed away. His pen is still productive, his last 
novel. Die Geburt der Venus^ appearing in 1909. His 
eightieth birthday, March 15, 191 o, was celebrated by 
his admirers throughout the literary world. Long may he 
live! 

Heyse's Works. — Paul Heyse's literary works are 
divided into lyrics, taies in verse, short stories in prose, 
npyçls, dr^Q^s and some translations. His yer^ç iç fio- 



BXOGRAPMICAL SKETCH xi 

ishedy brîllîant, full of color and harmony, but it never 
reaches the lyric heights of such great singers as Goethe, 
Heine, or Eichendorff. But none can deny its beauty. 

Novels. — Of Heyse's novels, Kinder der Weît (1873), 
Im Paradiese (1875), Roman der SHftsdame (1886), 
Merlin (1892), Uber Allen Gipfeln (1895), and Die 
Geburt der Venus (1909), the first is the best. Perhaps, 
as Richard M. Meyer says, the short story writer has 
stood in the way of the novelist: that is, the quickly 
moving narrative, accustomed to stop when the climax 
is reached fails to interest the reader so keenly in the 
descending action. But in spite of ail adverse criticism, 
deserved and undeserved, Heyse's novels are among the 
best that Germany has produced. 

Novellen in Versen. — He wrote some fifteen "novels 
in verse," as he calls them, the first, Margherita SpoleHna^ 
appearing in ^849, while Heyse was still a student in 
his teens, the last, Das Feenkind^ belonging to the year 
1868. The most ambitions and the longest \% Thekla^ 
Ein Gedicht in neun Gesàngen. The character of thèse 
little epics is very uneven but ail of them show unusual 
mastery of language and metrical form. As to content, 
some of them hâve no very strong moral foundation. 
Perhaps Die Briider (1852), though short, is the best. 
Urica (1851) is a pessimistic taie of love between black 
and white. 

Dramas. — Of his quite numerous dramas Die Sabine- 
rinnen (1857) won the prize offered by Maximilian II, 
but was never agréât success; his Hadrian (1865) stands 
in the same category as Goethe's Tasso and Iphigenie but 



xii BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH 

at a very respectful distance, having beauty of form but 
very little action ; his most popular play is Hans Lange 
(i866), while his Co/âerg (iS6S) makes a hit on patriotic 
occasions; his Wahrheiti (1^92) is poor enough. The 
fact is, Heyse is a story teller, not a dramatist. Still in 
the last few years his plays hâve received more favorable 
criticism. 

Novellen. — But it is in the short story, die Novelle^ 
in contradistinction to the novel, der Rotnan^ that Paul 
Heyse stands prééminent. Beginning with Marion (1852), 
and the beautiful VArrabbiata (1853), which latter made 
him famous at twenty-three, continuing with Das Màd- 
chen von Treppi (1855) and Anfang und Ende (1857), 
scarcely a year has passed without at least one or two 
successful stories from his facile pen, till now the number 
runs above one hundred. But he has ne ver surpassed. 
VArrabbiata^ in which he at once struclc the key-note of 
a successful story: suprême interest, a situation not a 
development, rapid action, beautiful, transparent lan- 
guage, only a few characters but ail so well drawn that 
they fairly live and breathe before our eyes. Harmony 
aiïd beauty are the characteristics — little of the rugged, 
angular strength of Kleist's Michael Kohlhaas. Heyse 
himself demanded of the Novelle y^eine starke Silhouettes^ 
(a strong outline), and he put his theory into practice. 
Among so many stories it is no wonder that keen-eyed 
critics — whose works, by the way, will be no longer 
thought of, when VArrabbiata is still read and loved — 
hâve discovered that Heyse's greatest fault is that "The 
poet forgets that the external appearance should be only 



BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH xiii 

the key and symbol of the whole personality: he shows 
us actions, behind which we seek in vain warm life, psy- 
chology, connection in the higher sensé." (Richard M. 
Meyer. Die deutsche Litteratur des neunzehnten Jahrhun- 
derts. Berlin içoo.) But in spite of a few inferior stories, 
in spite of one or two faults to be discovered perhaps in 
several of them, still a score of them are admitted to be 
models of their kind, and Paul Heyse has contributed 
more than his fair share to the literature of the Nine- 
teenth Centxuy.

NOTES 

[The numbers in heavy-faced type refer to pages of the text ; the others to Unes.] 

!• lo. ^ait^t • « • 9[ttgeit : accusatives absolute; often translated 
by with and objective case in Ënglish. lo. Notice that auf takes 
the accusative (bie $aitb) on account of gefttlt^t* The dative very 
seldom occurs in this idiom. 13. Italie: dépendent subjunctive to 
express uncertainty. 14. tl)r: dative, indirect object. 18. Begin 
the translation with the toâl^retlb clause. 

2* 1,2. i^r SBefett treiBen: (lit. conduct their being), trans. dwglL 
9, 14. Note the différence between f^orett {disturb) and ^erftdtett 
(dfstroy), 

^* S- âtt $Slt|lten : note the f orm of the plural, regularly used in 
this expression. What is the usual form? 12. ed: stands for Me 
ST^ac^t ]^a6en, understood from above. 

é. 22, 24, 25. gel^t — ergaitgen — gel^t: there is practically no 
différence in meaning between the simple verb (gel^en) and the com- 
pound (ergefien), when used, as hère, with the dative. 

5* I. note ])eiratett, to take a wife or husband: er l^eiratet ba^ 
t^râulein (he marries the young woman) ; bcrl^eiratcn, to marry off: bec 
SJatcr toitt bic îoc^tcr bcrl^ciraten {the father wants to marry off his 
daughters) ; fi(§ ber^eirateit mit, to wed: bcr Çauptntûitn bcri^ctratet fic^ 
mit ber reicl^en (Srbtn (the captain weds the rich heiress). 9. l^âtte: 
potential subjunctive in hypothetical dépendent clause. 10. btef( 
3f||rc ^nft: trans. this art of y ours. 12, 13. tttt^eU: direct object. 
1 5. ^ritten UUb $afen su \a^tn : it is difHcult to render this médio- 
cre pun into English. %Mitn iagen, or more usually, ©rillen fangen, 
means ta hâve the blues. Of course ^afen jagen is used in the literal 
sensé. Perhaps it would do to translate the passage tê eatch rabbits 
and the blues. 18, 19. iei mit tlOtandpfet^etl : (lit. to présuppose 
with me), trans. as to présuppose I hâve.

tAen you hâve hardly reached ihe years, which ... 8. IBtttttt means 
a betrothed woman before her marriage, not a bride, 20. gebtO^t 
toitb : brol^en in the active voice takes the dative. The passive is 
thus impersonal. The subject e§ is often omitted. 

7* 4. ift geforgt: (compare note 69 20) another impersonal con- 
struction in the passive. This verb does not however take the da- 
tive. The subject e^ is omitted, because according to the rules of 
Word order (inversion) it would hâve to foUow ift. In such cases c? 
is omitted. 4. 9)^orgen mit bem friil^fteit : trans. to-morrow morning 
bright and early, il. ttlte toeilanb ®anl, bet ^ti^XL beiS ^d: see 
Bible: I Samuel 9. 11. toetlanb (Eng. whilom): an archaic word, 
which gives the expression a quaint and Biblical and therefore hère 
also somewhat humorous Sound. 12. Sftiigeit: the subjunctive of a 
possible wish.

Word order are not always observed. In fact the placing of the 
finite verb at the very end of the dépendent clause introduced by 
tocnn, bafe, etc., is of comparatively récent origin. Luther*s Bible 
(completed 1 534) has hundreds of exceptions, if one wishes to view 
them as such. 15. WMât^ : Eduard Môrike (1804-187 5), novelist,

the most original of the so-called Swabian School. His beautiful 
short story, Sloaûtt auf bet Sîeife nac^ $rag (1856), made his réputa-

refer to both Eugénie and Valentine. This change from the more 
formai <&te to the more familiar ^f)X expresses the greater intimacy 
felt by the three, especially the Doctor and Valentine, at the exer-
