Here is an excellent English translation of nineteenth-century poet, Heinrich Heine’s, eponymous poem about the Lorelei. Heine adapted Clemens Brentano’s theme about the bewitching young woman into this famous poem. Beloved and memorized by schoolchildren the world over, Heine’s poem served as the gateway for the legend’s dissemination into popular culture.
