thanks-eucken and lucken are both german writers so can't see why one is preferable?
1.Mann
2.Mommsen Theodor
Question Author
thanks had both those but see my second entry
I think I would go with Eucken, a Nobel prize winner.Lucken is rather obscure in comparison.
Question Author
thanks

all done yesterday ... but still don't see how tea/grass relates to German Nobel Literature laureates? Sorry if i'm being thick here!
Question Author
thanks again-glad that's all clear!

Google Grass and Nobel Laureate.
pomona - (Gunter) Grass is the 5th German Nobel Laureate.
Yep already saw that Gunter was one too ... was looking for some other connection.... Oh dear never mind. Thanks hankir & Maisie
