No, that was Gérard de Nerval - and he died with a talking raven in attendance!
OK. I'd rather be him. Though not sure about Goethe's aversion to dogs being a measure of sanity. "Why should a lobster be any more ridiculous than a dog? ...or a cat, or a gazelle, or a lion, or any other animal that one chooses to take for a walk? I have a liking for lobsters. They are peaceful, serious creatures. They know the secrets of the sea, they don't bark, and they don't gnaw upon one's monadic privacy like dogs do. And Goethe had an aversion to dogs, and he wasn't mad."
