The book begins by outlining the core concepts for using speedlights as a primary light source. One of the major advantages of a speedlight portrait system is that it allows you create the light you want virtually anywhere. But the evil fortune that seemed to run like a fatal thread through Lessing's life whenever he found himself near the fulfilment of an ardent desire again asserted itself. Its luminous distinctions, its suggestive utterances, point the way to exact truth, even where they do not define it. Have they no outward charm?

Like Luther, he led the vanguard of reform in every department of human learning into which he penetrated. He is widely considered by theatre historians to be the first dramaturg. Sime's work on Lessing, and the almost simultaneous appearance of Miss Helen Zimmern's shorter but probably more popular biographical study, will, without doubt, tend to spread amongst English-speaking people a knowledge of a writer who is held in peculiar reverence by his own countrymen; and there is little, if anything, of what he wrote that does not appeal in some way or other to the sympathies of Englishmen. Today his own works appear as prototypes of the later developed bourgeois German drama.

The 'Dramaturgy' must be regarded rather as a collection of [Greek: epea pteroenta], than a systematic book. Lessing outlined the concept of the religious "Proof of Power": How can miracles continue to be used as a base for Christianity when we have no proof of miracles? Shortly before Lessing's birth there had awakened a sense of this national degradation, and some princes and nobles formed themselves into a society to suppress the fashionable Gallicisms and reinstate the people's language. Gotthold Ephraim Lessing was born on the twenty-second of January,at Camentz, a small town in Saxony, of which his father was head pastor.

At Meissen he distinguished himself in classical studies, and attempted some original German verses. Lessing's Hamburgische Dramaturgie ran critiques of plays that were performed in the Hamburg Theatre, but after dealing with dissatisfied actors and actresses, Lessing redirected his writings to more of an analysis on the proper uses of drama.

His tenure there was energetic, if interrupted by many journeys. Up to the present, his name has been familiar to Englishmen only as the author of the 'Laokoon,' 'Nathan the Wise,' and, possibly also, of 'Minna von Barnhelm.
