Originally published in 1929, this book was written to provide an account of the German circle in Copenhagen during the mid-eighteenth century, revealing 'the very real debt which Danish literature and thought owed to the German writers who were in Copenhagen between the years 1740 and 1770'. A bibliography is included and detailed notes are incorporated throughout. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in European literature, literary criticism and comparative literature.
