Rahel Levin Vamhagen, hija de un comerciante de piedras preciosas, ejerció una notable influencia en el romanticismo alemán. Sin ser rica, ni cultivada, ni hermosa, fue dotada, sin embargo, de inteligencia y de la capacidad de vivir su vida intensamente y como si se tratara de una obra de arte.

Rahel Varnhagen: Ein Rätsel, ein Monstrum und ein Paradox

"Was mich interessierte, war lediglich, Rahels Lebensgeschichte so nachzuerzählen, wie sie selbst sie hätte erzählen können. Warm sie selbst sich, im Unterschied zu dem, was andere über sie sagten, für ausserordentlich hielt, hat sie in nahezu jeder Epoche ihres Lebens in sich gleichbleibenden Wendungen und Bildern, die alle das umschreiben sollten, was sie unter Schicksal verstand, zum Ausdruck gebracht."

Philip Jenks

the wild part, among so much - which hey it's way different than the other arendts - is the dream sequence with its outright rejection of interpreting dreams in "Night and Day" and then right into the most splendid dream interpretation sequence. most innovative of Arendt's? why have mosts?
Was given 3 days to read this book AND write an essay by my grad school professors. Was not thrilled. Surprisingly enough, I finished the book in a day and actually went over the page limit on my essay. Arendt uses Varnhagen's life as a Zionist criticism of Jewish assimilation into German society. She ended up recanting this pov later in life, but the book still stands as a wonderful work--the beginnings of my Arendt obsession.
