The Weimar Études
The Weimar Études
By Henry Pachter
Columbia University Press, 1982, 360 pp

A pleasing mixture of autobiography and historical musings, in the form of several memoirs and essays, all on the theme of Weimar and exile. Pachter was a left-wing intellectual-homeless, versatile, interestingly unscholarly. The essays, here posthumously assembled, mirror his interests in philosophy, literature and all things German.
