Summary:
"Walter Benjamin's sonnets written to mourn his friend Fritz Heinle constitute an important though little-known part of the German-Jewish philosopher's literary achievements and a unique contribution to the history of the German sonnet. Benjamin would add to their number over a decade, having begun his project soon after the outbreak of World War I and the suicide of his friend."
