"Like a jewelry chest, the covers of this book open on a gem of German prose, brought to its full radiance by Richard Sieburth's splendid translation, accompanied by the German original as usually befits only poetry, and set among extensive notes and additional texts which allow the reader to appreciate its historical importance as well as its present powerful effect. I'd like to call Lenz a score, a score to go mad over..."
