Like The Soul of The Poet

 “The swan, like the soul of the poet, By the dull world is ill understood.”

Heinrich Heine

About Marty Luster

I'm Marty Luster, a retired attorney and politician. In 2010 my wife, mother-in-law, dog and I relocated from Central NY to Gloucester. I hope my photographs and poetry(?) reflect my love for this place and her people. My picture-poem posts can be seen at and selected black and white images can be found at

  1. Hello Marty,
    I haven’t thought about Heine for a long time.
    In the 1970s our family lived for three and a half years in Paris on a street named Rue Henri Heine.
    The French must have thought highly of him to give him his own street.
    Why is he so important?

  2. Marty Luster says:

    Heine lived the last 25years of his life in Paris. His political radicalism was in tune with the French culture of the day.
