message 1: by Ivis (new) - added it

Ivis I just got it and can't wait to read it. I was knocked out by The Sorrows of Young Werther (against all expectation) and now am curious about the Romantics. Everything I learned about them was 50+ years ago and has long been forgotten!

Catherine Siemann I really enjoyed it, and he works in the poets along with the scientists, which certainly helped me contextualize things . . .
