I don't think I've even heard of Benjamin. Legolas Send a noteboard - 25/01/2011 09:41:55 PM
You should read Benjamin and Nietzsche and Mann.

And Mann... I'm discouraged even to think of starting Der Zauberberg.
They make me want to learn German. So if you already know it, you should profit.

It's more a matter of "speaking a closely related language" than of "knowing it". :P
