41 As was often the case with Mendelssohn, who was among the most self-critical composers in music history, this work underwent serious revision. It was overtly a tribute to Goethe's poetry. In its final form it became one of Mendelssohn's favorite works, and it remains one of Mendelssohn's finest achievements. As Heinz Klaus Metzger has argued, Mendelssohn transformed Goethe's Druids and pagans into Jews who refuse to convert (as did some of Mendelssohn's extended family). T h e final scene of the pagans defending their faith against Christian soldiers while musing on the extent to which Christians perverted the meaning of their religious ideas—although taken straight from Goethe—can be understood, in terms of its emotional lure for Mendelssohn, by its obvious analogy to the historical and contemporary plight of Jewry, particularly in the context of the new anti-Semitism of the 1830s and 1840s.
