Summary
The year is 1794 and Fritz, passionate, idealistic and brilliant, is seeking his father’s permission to announce his engagement to his heart’s desire: twelve-year-old Sophie. His astounded family and friends are amused and disturbed by his betrothal. What can he be thinking? Tracing the dramatic early years of the young German who was to become the great romantic poet and philosopher Novalis, ‘The Blue Flower’ is a masterpiece of invention, evoking the past with a reality that we can almost feel
Summary
Novalis, living in 18th-century Germany in a rambunctious family, decides to marry Sophie, a child of 12, because she seems to him like a blue flower, the one thing he wants to see in his life
