Erlkönig: Ballad by Johann Wilhelm von Goethe; Music by Franz Schubert (1815) Wer reitet so spät durch Nacht und Wind? Who rides so late through night and wind? Es ist der Vater mit seinem Kind; It is the father with his child. Er hat den Knaben wohl in dem Arm, He holds the youngster tight in his arm, Er faßt ihn sicher, er hält ihn warm. Grasps him securely, keeps him warm. “Mein Sohn, was birgst du so bang dein Gesicht?” “Son, what makes you afraid to look?” „Siehst, Vater, du den Erlkönig nicht? “Don’t you see, Father, the Erlking there? Den Erlenkönig mit Kron und Schweif?“ The King of the forest with his crown and train?” „Mein Sohn, es ist ein Nebelstreif.“ “Son, it's only a streak of mist.” „Du liebes Kind, komm, geh mit mir! “Darling child, come away with me! Gar schöne Spiele spiel ich mit dir; I will play some lovely games with you; Manch bunte Blumen sind an dem Strand, Many bright flowers grow by sure; Meine Mutter hat manch gülden Gewand.“ My mother has many golden robes.”

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
