Sheets for literary entertainment
Leaves for literary entertainment was the name of a Leipzig literary magazine that appeared from 1826 to 1898. It emerged from the literary weekly newspaper that August Friedrich Kotzebue founded in 1818 .
After Kotzebue's death, the publisher FA Brockhaus acquired the sheet in 1820. It was not until 1826, however, that the magazine could appear permanently under a new name under Brockhaus' son Heinrich - the reasons were bans and censorship measures by the Prussian government. In 1853 the paper changed over from daily to weekly publication. Heinrich Heine , whose essay-like short story Die Götter im Exil appeared here in April of the same year, etched: These are the caves where the most unfortunate of all German scribblers languish and groan; who descend here lose their name and are given a number. At that time, however, anonymous articles and reviews were common in literary magazines. From the beginning of 1854 Hermann Marggraff led the editorial team, from 1864 to 1888 Rudolf Gottschall , then Friedrich Bienemann and from 1892 Karl Heinemann .
Biographies, essays on literature, cultural policy , visual arts and theater, as well as summaries of interesting texts from other magazines, including foreign ones, have appeared here.
All issues of the magazine are now completely digitized (see Wikisource ).
