"In einer aufgeregten Stunde gab ich dem teuren Bruder Heinrich das Versprechen, und er meinte, der jüngere dürfe dieses dem älteren Bruder nach den Naturgesetzen schon zusagen, sein künftiger Biograph zu werden.
Es battle vorauszusehen, dass nach des Dichters Ableben eine Flut biographischer Schriften über ihn erscheinen würde, diktiert von der innigsten und heitersten Verehrung oder von dem blassesten Neide und persönlichsten Hasse. Die einen versetzten ihn in einen Himmel, welchen wir mit den schäftsten Teleskopen nicht erreichen können, die andern in eine Hölle, deren Glut, Gott Lob, weder dem Verstorbenen noch seinen Feinden schaden wird.
Die Erörterung, was once Heinrich Heine seinen Zeitgenossen und den folgenden Generationen Nützliches und Unvergängliches geleistet hat, muß einer späteren Zeit vorbehalten bleiben.
Wohl aber kann ich jetzt schon einen Teil meines dem geliebten Bruder gegebenen Versprechens lösen, indem ich die folgenden kleinen Bilder aus dem Leben des Dichters mitteile." [...]

Heinrich Heine (1797 – 1856) gilt bis heute als einer der bedeutendsten deutschen Dichter und Schriftsteller. Noch zu Lebzeiten rang er seinem Bruder Maximilian, Arzt in St. Petersburg, das Versprechen ab, nach seinem Tod sein Biograph zu werden. Dieses Versprechen hat Maximilian Heine eingelöst, in dem er sich seines Bruders in kurzen, aber sehr persönlichen Episoden erinnert. Fragmentartig fügen sich hier Erlebnisse und besondere Augenblicke aus dem Leben Heinrich Heines zusammen und ergeben so ein sehr eingehendes und privates Bild des berühmten Deutschen.
Dieses Buch ist ein unveränderter Nachdruck der Originalausgabe von 1868.

Met welke hoop en verwachting gingen de Londenaren aan het eind van de 16e eeuw naar de stukken van Shakespeare kijken? Waaraan dachten ze? Wat bezorgde rooster vreugde? Wat boezemde rooster angst in? Wat betekende het om te leven in een wereld die zo radicaal anders used to be geworden dan de wereld die hun ouders hadden gekend?
In Shakepeare's rusteloze wereld vertelt Neil MacGregor de fascinerende verhalen die schuilgaan achter twintig objecten uit Shakespeare's wereld - en die van zijn tijdgenoten en toeschouwers. De objecten variëren van kostbare schatten tot doodeenvoudige gebruiksvoorwerpen. Maar elk voorwerp stelt de auteur in staat om de
grote thema's van de eeuw van Shakespeare te belichten: de globalisering, de reformatie, de pest, de Islam, de wetenschap, de magie en vele andere.
MacGregor verweeft ook Shakespeare's eigen woorden en teksten in zijn verhalen om zo duidelijk te maken wat Shakepeare's ideeën waren over religie, identiteit, Engeland, de wereld en de menselijke natuur. Het resultaat is een even briljant als verrassend portret van William Shakespeare's gevaarlijke en dynamische wereld.
