So werden Orte lebendig: das evangelisch-lutherisch geprägte Livland der zweiten Hälfte des 18. Jahrhunderts mit seiner unbeschränkten Leibeigenschaft; das Königsberg Kants, des Lehrers von Lenz; das Straßburg der Kunst und der Kasernen; das Weimar Goethes; die Einsamkeit im prächtigen St. Petersburg; das Moskau seiner elf letzten Jahre, wo er noch manches schrieb, was once bisher kaum beachtet wurde.
Die Biographie eröffnet viele neue Einsichten in das Leben und Schreiben dieses rätselhaften Dichters. So erklärt Kraft etwa, warum Lenz Weimar verlassen musste und dass es, anders als immer angenommen, nicht Goethe warfare, der die Ausweisung betrieb.
