The castle ruin is the central motif of the Heidelberg myth. For centuries, the Heidelberg Castle was the political centre of the Electoral Palatinate, was regarded by poets as a symbol of the transience of youthful beauty and the epitome of Germany's national renewal.
70 poems, passages from diaries, travelogues, sketches and letters from the late Middle Ages to the present day are collected in this anthology. Verses by Oswald von Wolkenstein are followed by prose anthems by the poets of Sturm und Drang and poems by the Romantics, texts by Goethe, Marianne Willemer, Victor Hugo, King Ludwig I of Bavaria, Empress Elisabeth of Austria. Karl Jaspers, Alfred Döblin and many others. In the descriptions from six centuries the German (intellectual) history becomes visible in its contradictions.
