Stefan Vogel, a tender guy becoming up within the former East Germany, longs for romance, glory and freedom - yearnings that categorical themselves in a lifelong delusion of going to the United States. The hopeless son of an formidable mom and a type yet unfortunate diplomat, Stefan lurches among his budding, covert pursuits - ladies and Romantic poetry - to discover himself embroiled in dissident politics, which oddly turns out to supply both.
In time, via a chain of blackly comedian and more and more risky manoeuvres, he contrives to make his fable come actual, discovering himself not just within the kingdom of his goals, but in addition married to the girl he idolises. the USA turns out every little thing he anticipated and in the meantime his secrets and techniques are thoroughly locked away in the back of the Berlin Wall.
A new lifetime of unbounded bliss turns out to were granted to him. after which that existence starts to crumble. ..

Die arabische Welt im UmbruchDie arabische Welt ist im Umbruch. Nach Jahrhunderten der Unterdrückung wagen die arabischen Völker die Selbstbefreiung, fordern Demokratie und soziale Gerechtigkeit.

I do not at all despise prose criticism in general or my own prose criticism in particular; but I wish my life's work to be, as far as possible, poetry. Prose I shall be obliged to do- for money; and I should in any case do it more or less- for pleasure. But there is a vast difference bdween seeming to the public a poet who also writes criticism and a critic who also writes poetry. I consider myself, and I wish to be considered, the former: if I bring out a volume of poems now soon, before I have made much of a name as a prose-writer, there will be some chance of my getting my wish: let the quality of the poetry quite alone, let the book be received as it may chance- that is no matter; I shall be able to show something for myself as poet.
