First in this, paperback, edition. From the cover: “Holderlin was born in 1770, as were also Wordsworth, Hegel and Beethoven. That generation grew up believing the world — ‘the very world, which is the world/ Of all of us’ — could be changed for the better, and that love, reason and justice could be instituted in it, here and now. They were disappointed. But disappointment does not annul hope.
