He is appreciated and loved for his wisdom and kindness and as unfailing healer of the sick and ailing. One day, however, he declares himself a God.

Mar 16, Araceli. Tutto ruota attorno alla Natura, meraviglioso l’inno della scena terza holdelrin prima stesura. Una Natura spinoziana quella Holderlin in questo dramma.
