Reading German : Hölderlin's "Hyperion"

+ Attending

We will read Holderlin's novel "Hyperion" aloud in German and translate.  German students of all levels are welcome to join us !

Wikipedia has this to say about "Hyperion" :

Hyperion is a novel by Friedrich Hölderlin first published in 1797 (Volume 1) and 1799 (Volume 2). The full title is Hyperion oder Der Eremit in Griechenland (Hyperion or The Hermit in Greece).

The work is composed of letters from Hyperion to his friends Bellarmin, along with a few letters between Hyperion and his love Diotima. It is set in Greece and deals with invisible forces, conflicts, beauty, and hope. The novel deals with young Greeks fighting to gain Greek independence. In a footnote, Hölderlin specifically ties events in the novel dealing with the Russians "bringing a fleet into the Archipelago" in 1770, likely tying the novel's events to the Orlov Revolt.
