Preußens Luise

2.88  ·  Rating Details ·  8 Ratings  ·  2 Reviews
Königin Luise von Preußen ist längst Legende: In Bildern, Büsten und zahllosen Büchern wurde sie verewigt. Günter de Bruyn führt auf das Unterhaltsamste vor, wie die preußische Königin Luise für das Deutsche Reich von 1871 zu einer Art Ursprungsmythos wurde. Er beschreibt die Herkunft dieser Legende und die Kraft, die sie über zwei Jahrhunderte für Preußens Kultur hatte.
Paperback, 142 pages
Published September 2002 by Berliner Taschenbuch Verlag (first published 2001)

As I was reading this as an adjunct to Clausewitz and the State I happened to come across an old diary - the sort in which you scribble down irregular appointments that you'd otherwise forget - from the time when the late Princess Diana died, and I had noted down some of the news reports of the size of the crowds and of people claiming to have had visions of the Princess.

All of which led me back to Luise. Crown Princess and later Queen Luise of Prussia (1776 - 1810) even within her own lifetime

... also wirklich. Eins der langweiligsten Bücher und wohl die langweiligste Biographie, die ich je gelesen habe. Der Autor schafft es nicht auf den Punkt zu kommen und zu sagen wovon genau die Faszination dieser Frau ausging. Es wird auch nicht deutlich inwiefern sie wichtig für das politische oder gesellschaftliche Leben war - da fragt man sich "Wofür dann dieses Buch?"
