Speeches of Prince Bismarck, Part 2

Read by Alister

A collection of Bismarck’s speeches translated by art historian Edmund von Mach and published in 1914 as part of THE GERMAN CLASSICS—an extensive twenty-volume collection of translated German literature which, per George Viereck in a 1915 article published in THE FATHERLAND, included 487 works from ninety-two personages.

“Bismarck did not write out his speeches” according to v. Mach and “published accounts are copied from official stenographic reports.” The names here attributed to them are drawn from the content and phrasing of the speeches themselves.

In this part are the speeches Salus Publica – Bismarck’s Only Lode-Star (1881), Practical Christianity (1881), We Germans Fear God, and Nought Else (1888), Mount the Guards at the Warthe and the Vistula! (1894) and Long Live the Emperor and the Empire! (1895).
