Written four years before the 1848 Revolution, Heine's Deutschland is a brilliantly funny read. In this 'verse travelogue' Heine comments on the homeland he sees again after years of exile. Europe's wittiest poet bull's-eyes his targets - bourgeois lethargy, rampant Prussianism, phoney medievalism, German idealist philosophy - and the idea that the value system of the German middle class has helped to maintain social injustice and political oppression.

T J Reed's translation is the only English version to shape up to Heine's outrageous rhymes and rhythms. This reissue following the reunification of Germany in 1990 adds facing German text and updates the introduction and endnotes in the perspective of a Germany once more reconstituted.
