Up to the time of that terrible event which, with fearful violence, tore him in full maturity from his family and his work, there were but few striking incidents in his life, and even these seem chiefly noteworthy from motives of affectionate regard and reverence. There are still no small number of people who have a higher and more exclusive right to his life, than the nation. To his country belongs what he achieved and created, such art treasures as he left behind in perpetual legacy; his life, on the contrary, is hers only in so far as it is revealed in these. Such are the considerations that have guided me in my work. I have striven to explain the masters mental development as it is seen in his works, and also to show his great significance in the world of art and letters. The external course of his life will be mentioned only as it affected that mental development, and as it renders his art work more intelligible. For this subordinate part of my task I have chiefly relied upon Wasielewski scareful Life and Letters of Schumann.
