Eine Liebeserklärung an Heidelberg und europäische Geschichte.
Dieser Ausschnitt aus Victor Hugos Rheinreise hat den typischen wunderschönen und sympathischen Stil den man aus seinen anderen Werken kennt. Das Buch ist wie die Abschweifungen und Exkursionen in die Vergangenheit in seinen Romanen, nur dass sie einen hier nicht aus einer Handlung raus reißen sondern als eigenständiges Werk dastehen. Eindrücke, Entdeckungen und Anektdoten bilden diesen besonderen Reisebericht von 1840. Wer den Autor

Catálogo de enclaves míticos y de gran peso histórico que Hugo va presentando y desarrollando, contrastando la grandeza del pasado con la decadencia del presente. Con estos viajes se inspiraría el maestro para escribir el dra ...more
