39 The speech is printed in VJHfZ, l958, No. 2. Already in 1935, in a speech referring to the writers, Professor Walter Frank had asked the question

'whether, in times when a Caesar rises and falls, when empires tumble and raise themselves up, when nations clash to decide their existence and non-existence, power and glory, those who rhyme only for private pleasure are properly worthy of life' (Zukunft und Nation, Publications of the Reich Institute for the History of the New Germany, Hamburg, 1935).
