The poem ”Mittsommernacht” by Ingeborg Arlt describes a Summer-landscape and at the same time a landscape of the soul. Everything, shadow, night, darkness, morning becomes a metaphor. The precision of her observation of nature, similar to that of Wilhelm Lehmann, does not prevent her from using exact terms in a metaphorical way. Summernight and night of love are becoming one. The cosmic phenomenon of the solstice is also considered as a personal one: the change in life.
The artful design of the book follows the idea of collect and preserve the feeling and atmosphere of the events. Form and colour are adequately used to the content. From the deep blue of the night the book develops into a shining and promising orange - like the sun. The spontaenous handwriting corresponds to the “free style” use of the brush and the expressive and abstract forms.
