Achim von Arnim's stay in Königsberg (1806/07) during the Napoleonic wars was shaped by his contacts to the Prussian reformers around Stein, his crucial love for Auguste Schwinck, and his edition of the »Einsiedlerzeitung« in Heidelberg in 1808. After his return he spent five years in Berlin where he attempted to integrate himself into Berlin society, wrote his most important works (Wintergarten, Gräfin Dolores, Halle und Jerusalem, The Novellas of 1812, Päpstin Johanna, the plays in Die Schaubühne), founded the Christlich-Teutsche Tischgesellschaft, and edited the »Preussische Correspondent« (1813/14). 1810 marks the founding of the Berlin University. Arnim attempted to shape the political, literary, scientific and artistic endeavours during the years of occupation, reforms, and wars against Napoleon. In 1811, he married Bettina Brentano, in 1814 he moved to his country estate Wiepersdorf where he devoted his life to his estate and writing. The lectures of the first meeting of the Internationale Arnim-Gesellschaft at Wiepersdorf palace 1997 discuss these years at the zenith of Arnim's career and analyse his concepts, intentions, successes and disappointments. J. Barth (Wuppertal) compiled the Arnim-Bibliography of the years 1925-1995 which is the continuation of the 1925 Arnim-Bibliography by Otto Mallon.
