I understood my German class today. We were discussing Freud on the uncanny and ETA Hoffmann's Der Sandmann, both of which were significantly difficult texts, which is probably why the discussion was so simple. I read The Sandman in English and then started it in German, and translated the first part of the Freud, then read it in English. Der Sandmann is a psychologically acute portrayal of psychotic thinking.

I will hope for more difficult texts leading to simple classes.
