  2. 2. German writers Many German writers and musicians began to believe in the idea of a united Germany, rather than separate states. They wrote stories and music which were widely read and listened to across Germany.
  3. 3. Famous examples Beethoven was a famous composer, well known for his emotional music that inspired many Germans. The Brothers Grimm also told stories which suggested Germans playing a heroic role.
  4. 4. Arguments for Music and books were popular across the Bund, so they encouraged many people to think about a Greater Germany. This helped inspire a belief in German greatness amongst many people.
