Heinrich

but I swear to you ...

it is quite impossible for me

to live any longer.

My soul is so injured

that I, I'd almost say ...

whenever I stick my nose

out of the window

the daylight is hurtful to me

that shines upon it.

Some people might think this morbid and eccentric.

By having been in constant contact

with beauty and decorum since my earliest youth,

in my thoughts and writings,

I have become so sensitive

that the slightest attacks

a person's feelings are subject to

during the course of things

are hurting me doubly and triply.

[letter to Marie von Kleist, 10 Nov. 1811]

Mummy, let me in!

Kleist

In the midst of this triumphal song

my soul starts singing at this moment of death,

I think of you once more

and want to unbosom myself to you,

as much as possible.

Everything else on earth,

the whole and the lonely,

I've totally overcome within my heart.

Yes, it is true:

I've cheated on you,

or rather,

I've cheated on myself,

but as I've told you a thousand times

that I won't survive this,

I'm giving you now,

by taking leave of you,

the proof of it.

I've exchanged you with another woman friend,

but if this is of any comfort to you,

not with one who wants to live with me,

but who, sensing that I won't be true to her either,

like I wasn't true to you,

wants to die with me.

I can't tell you more,

my relationship to the lady doesn't permit it.

Only know that much:

that my soul, by being touched by hers,

has wholly ripened to death,

that I've measured all the splendour

of the human soul within hers,

and I die because on earth,

there remains nothing for me to learn or acquire.

Farewell.

[letter to Marie von Kleist, 19 Nov. 1811]

in pairs - and not a word!

good morning, Frl. von Kleist

good morning, Frl. von Kleist

I cannot die,

feeling as content and gay as I feel now,

without having reconciled with the whole world,

and therefore, before all others, my dear Ulrike,

without having reconciled with you too.

Really, what you've done for me

was beyond the forces of a sister,

but within the forces of a human being,

in order to save me.

The truth is:

on earth, no one could help me.

And now farewell.

May ...

Heaven ...

grant you ...

a death ...

with only ...

half of the joy ...

and ...

inner serenity ...

resembling mine.

Stimmings

near Potsdam,

on the morning

morning

of my death.

Your

Heinrich.
