Text Appearing Before Image:
Exposition. And there are Klingers early experi-ments in colored marble—the Salome, the Cassan-dra, and the Bathing Girl. But the one part ofindoor Leipsic that lives most vividly in my memoryis the room where the pallid spirit of Beethovendreams forever on a throne of blue and bronze andivory. Out of doors the most attractive part of town tome is Naundorfchen. There is something of Veniceand Amsterdam and old Hamburg in the way itnestles down to the curving, canal-like river, withits charming, nondescript houses on piles. Backfrom the tiny cottages on the tiny river, with theirglamourous windows, whence old men fish the live-long day, and with their blooming, unordered gar-dens full of romping children, the roofs swing tieron tier in a hundred gracious curves, with a lilt andan Old-World grace that recall the roofs of Nurem-berg. A ramshackle skiff floating below Naundorf-chen—that is the place to rid ones feet of the lastgrain of modern, metropolitan dust—that is the place 258
Text Appearing After Image:
ox THE PLEISSE IN THE NArXDuRFCHEX QUARTER LEIPSIC to ruminate the strange history of Doctor Faustus,or to discover in some black-letter book a lyric such asthis by the dusty poet Golmeyer: Leipzic die fiirnehm Handels Statt,ein Windisch Volk erbawet hat,welchs man Soraben hat genandtdas weit und breit worden bekandt.Es war zwar Liptz ihr erster Nam,den sie vom Lindenbusch bekam,so in der Gegend gstanden ist,wie man hiervon gschrieben list. (Leipsic, the stately town of trade,Was by a Wendish people made,A people that were Sorbs yclept,Whose fame about the land hath crept.Liptz was indeed its earliest name.Which from a wood of lindens cameThat stood in the vicinity,As all the scribes of old agree.) 261
