Excerpt from L'arrabbiata
A lively imagination, a wonderful mastery of poet ical forms, and a rare command of the language are the characteristics of Heyse's style; an appreciation and love of all that is beautiful, graceful, and noble in humanity and nature are the distincti... ve features of his view of life, as laid down in his various poetical works.
Heyse, it is true, has written lyric poems which are full of deepest feeling and expression; he has composed numerous dramatic works, which have been favorably received by the German public; his larger romances (im Paradiese, Kinder der Welt) are remarkable produc tions of their kind; but neither as a dramatic author nor as a lyric poet has he won that fame and reputa tion which he has enjoyed for almost half a century. Heyse's best works those in which no German poet ever equalled or surpassed him, are his short novels, over seventy in number, some in verse, others in prose. In these little masterpieces, which as a rule are of a peculiar construction and have a highly poetical idea as a basis, the nobility of the form rivals the warmth of inner life and the fascinating art of the author's diction. No matter what subject he chooses, what side of human nature or con¿ict in human life he describes, we can not help feeling a deeper interest in his char acters and problems, as our hearts take a part in them.
