Johann Jakob Wilhelm Heinse Bibliography

Ardinghello und die gluckseeligen Inseln 1787
A work of fantasy typifying the Sturm und Drang movement. Heinse “leads his central characters, after a bloodstained succession of wild experiences of more than ‘Gothic’ intensity, to an island where there is total freedom in personal relations, all rules and conventions have finally been flung to the winds, where man in an anarchist-communist society can at last stretch himself to his full stature as a sublime creative artist”.
