description of work

in its literary works uses Heinrich Luhmann again and again motives from German, in particular westcompany-read-CH-Saxonian history. In king Vogler as in the farmer riders appear the Protagonisten in each case as successors of the Saxonia prince Widukind . On the other hand Luhmann takes gladly historical materials (e.g. Escape by Prussia: Napoleon's escape after the defeat in Russia) up, which it mixes gladly with regional purchases from Westphalia (e.g. Finch in the tree: Stories around the baron von Vincke as a westfälischer upper president).

Besides Luhmann codesigned as Bildungsbürokrat in the third realm readers for the school teaching and classical German cultural property with National Socialist texts mixed.

After the Nazi period and the Second World War he dedicated himself in kleinformatigen literary texts and in descriptions of landscape to persons and places of his westfälischen homeland.

Beside the works stated down Heinrich Luhmann wrote the song texts to different homeland songs (you dear country, you became green to world; Of the red hair mountains; Westphalia country).
