I was fortunate to have been able to work at the Deutsches Literaturarchiv in Marbach am Neckar, which houses Ernst Bertram’s Nachlaß, or literary estate, in the summer of 2005. This collection houses many treasures relating to Bertram’s eventful life and career that would repay careful study. My thanks go to the director of the archive, Dr. Ulrich Raulff, who hosted my stay and invited me to give a lecture on the project, as well as to the Humboldt Foundation, which provided funds to support it.
