Steinkamp addresses the main issues concerning the dating of the work -- many commentators have deemed Clara to be a sketch for Schelling's The Ages of the World or an outline for the third, missing book of that work -- and provides a short biography of Schelling with particular emphasis on events claimed to play a role in the conception of Clara, such as the deaths of both Caroline and her daughter, Auguste. She depicts the striking correspondence between passages in Clara and the content of Schelling's touching letters mourning Caroline, written to Pauline, the daughter of Caroline's best friend and the woman who would become his second wife.
