A Wandering Scholar, I

 - Munich, 1919
 The daily life of the young student Paul Joseph Goebbels -

" Munich he studies under the Swiss art historian, Professor Heinrich Woelfflin; he studies music under Professor Hermann Ludwig Baron von der Pfordten and catholic theology under Professor Joseph Schnitzer. But his real intellectual nourishment is from what he takes in at the galleries and museums - The paintings of Arnold Bocklin, of Carl Spitzweg, and of Anselm Feuerbach. He read voraciously, devouring Sophocles' drama Antigone, August Strindberg's The Red Room, Thomas Mann Death in Venice, and assorted works by Hendrik Ibesen and Leo Tolstoy."

Taken from DAVID IRVING "Goebbels - Mastermind of the Third Reich"

Title of the post "A Wandering Scholar, I" is taken from a poem of Dr Goebbels.
