"It was a dream."

Es war ein Traum. February 17th will be the 150th anniversary of the death of Heinrich Heine, a poet and journalist of many dimensions, the one reason to learn German if you need only one, a man totally resistant to the boundaries of a single school, nation-state or ideology, a prophet of personal independence and political liberalism, but most of all, a musician's poet.
