Heinrich Heine, 1. Ignoro, quid id sibi velit, Tristissimus cur sim, Antiqui aevi fabellam Cur saepe volverim. Sedet in summo montis Virgo pulcherrima, Auro nitet gemma frontis, Se pectit auricoma. Aureolo pectine pectit, Carmen canens procul, Mirandum id habet modum Nec non virilem simul. In cymba navitam mille Angores feri tenent, Non videt scopulos ille, Ocli non si sursum vident.
Opinor undas devorare Nautam cum navicula, Effecit solo canendo Lurleia id dea.

Hello, I like your post. Lorelei was wise and the sailors and knights and princes were foolish, following after the lusts of their eyes. If they were wise they would of asked her the meaning of her song.
Story mentions the beauty that was in her eyes and in the Bible the eyes are the windows to the soul. Her beauty was inner beauty radiating from within. The fishermen are peter or the hardened church who are offended by the message of the cross. They want peace but the Lord came with a sword.
The meaning of the name Lorelei
This is long after the blog was written but I just read it for the first time. First, let me address Lorelei. That is why I said is it any wonder no one names their child Lorelei. I enjoyed reading all of the comments regarding Lorelei.
The Parable of the Lorelei
Joshua, we learned the poem in song when I was in high school German. One of my fav legends. D her beloved left her bcz of his evil greedy mother and her father did not accept her anymore. She decided to be drowned in a river, but god of Rhine stopped her. He cursed her songs and made her forget abt beloved man. He told that once she sheds a tear-she will die. After some time her knight found his Lorelei, she recognized him and started cry.
The poem itself is doggerel; the bad rhymes, the repetitions, the hackneyed images. BUT it is by Heine, a respectable literary figure, well known for his sense of irony.
Mythology of Lorelei - myfairyland
This poem has a sting in the tale which is never noticed by the Germans when they sing it, because the tune gets the stress wrong. The last two lines are very bitter: We have to look further. Heine was Jewish, though fairly assimilated. The Lorelei is the beautiful blonde German.
Her invitation is false. Own less, live more, and create space for the things you love. Get new posts delivered right to your inbox:.
