Bio: Heinrich Heine was one of the most significant German poets of the 19th century. He was also a journalist, essayist, and literary critic.

Quote of the day

Sound is naught but broken air, And every speech that is spoken, Loud or privily, foul or fair, In its substance is but air; For as flame is but lighted smoke, So sound is air that is broken.
