Johann Christian Friedrich Holderlin : Hyperion

E. M. Forster to Edward Joseph Dent, 6 March 1915: 'I have not read Platen yet [...] German's a labour. I liked Holderlin's Hyperion -- I wish someone would translate it. Have you read The White Peacock by D. H. Lawrence? If not, do not, because you cannot, but read one chapter in it called A poem of friendship, which is most beautiful. The whole book is the queerest product of subconsciousness that I have yet struck -- he has not a glimmering from first to last of what he's up to.'

Century: 1900-1945     Reader/Listener/Group: Edward Morgan Forster      Print: Book
