Aesthetica in nuce1:
A Rhapsody in Cabbalistic Prose (1762)
J. G. HAMANN

Judges V, 30

A prey ofdivers colours in needlework, meet for the necks ofthem that take the spoil.


Elihu in the Book ofJob, XXXII, 19–22

Behold, my belly is as wine which hath no vent; it is ready to burst like new bottles.

I will speak, that I may be refreshed: I will open my lips and answer.

Let me not, I pray you, accept any man's person, neither let me give flattering titles unto man.

For I know not to give flattering titles; in so doing my maker would soon take me away.2

J. G. Hamann's own notes are printed at the foot of the page, indicated by superscript letters in the text.

'Aesthetics in a Nutshell'; the title is probably modelled on that ofChristoph Otto von Sch önaich's (1725–1809)Complete Aesthetics in a Nutshell (Die ganze Ästhetik in einer Nuß, 1754), a satirical work against Klopstock.

This, and the previous quotation from Judges, are given by Hamann in the original Hebrew.
