The Blue Flower : It is late eighteenth-century Germany and the passionate, idealistic and brilliant Fritz needs his father's permission to announce his engagement to twelve-year-old Sophie, his "heart's heart," his "true Philosophy." It is a betrothal, which amuses, astounds and disturbs his family and friends. How can it be so? Tracing the dramatic early years of the young man who was to become the great romantic poet and philosopher Novalis, The Blue Flower is a masterpiece of invention, evoking the past with a reality that we can almost feel.
