En sus senos repletos me amamanto de vida; por ella soy ahora lo que soy y puedo levantar, alegre, la mirada. Bien lejos estoy de toda codicia. Lo que anhelo es ver la Flor Azul. Su imagen no me abandona; no puedo pensar ni hablar de otra cosa.

In this edition there is a bibliography. A book is an adventure a journey in thought and feeling, and a bibliography a menu promising strange new feasts. Novalis died, like all good Romantics, of TB view spoiler [ the song due to an excess of optimism has it the wrong way round, though in the end Jimmie Rodgers got thoroughly whipped by that old TB too hide spoiler ], and so this book remains unfinished.
Possibly the best possible ending, it is hard to imagine the promise of possibilities, the endless suggestiveness so as I stood reading about migrating birds, the influence of the clouds upon our moods view spoiler [ I like the clouds in the paintings of the Dutch old Masters, van Ruisdael is always good for this, look at their clouds and think how painterly!
How artificial! The afterword suggests that among others Richard Wagner, old Father Freud and Thomas Mann were all influenced by Novalis, which is hardly surprising ,the book is like a poppy or a dandelion, a great mass of seeds awaiting the softest breathe of wind to burst forth into the fertile soil of any imagination.
In the story he lies in bed his mind turning over a story he was told by a traveller, eventually in wanders into a dream and taken to a high place sees the blue flower, at breakfast his story prompts his father to tell the story of a significant dream he had as a young man. After that he departs with his mother on a journey to Augsburg where his maternal Grandfather lives, on the way various people tell various stories. In other words reading this book is rather like when troubled by storms and soulful woe going to the temple, curling up on the floor and dreaming, in the morning you try to explain the dream you had to the priest, but the priest can only advise that you visit the Oracle at Delphi.
Except this of course you can re-dream as often as you want.
