Rahel Levin Varnhagen: The Life and Work of a German Jewish Intellectual

By Heidi Thomann Tewarson | Go to book overview

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

I would like to acknowledge and thank Rabbi Shimon Brand (Oberlin College) and Jeffrey L. Sammons (Leavensworth Professor of German, Yale University) for their helpful suggestions and comments on various aspects of the manuscript. Sections of chapters 2 and 4 appeared in my essay "GermanJewish Identity in the Correspondence between Rahel Levin Varnhagen and Her Brother, Ludwig Robert: Hopes and Realities of Emancipation 1780 1830," Leo Baeck Institute Yearbook ( 1994). I would also like to express my special appreciation to my editor, Dr. Douglas Clayton, for his prompt and judicious advice and steady support. His knowledge of German and German literature and publishing were as helpful as they are rare in today's American publishing world. I am also grateful to Dr. Sarah Disbrow for her care in editing the manuscript.

My very special thanks go to Jack Glazier, whose loving support, intellectual companionship, and practical editorial help have benefited this project in so many ways.
