Author: Friedrich Holderlin

Johann Christian Friedrich Hölderlin (20 March 1770—6 June 1843) was a major German lyric poet. His work bridges the Classical and Romantic schools. Having spent most of his life tormented by mental illness, he suffered great loneliness, and often spent his time playing the piano, drawing, reading, writing, and enjoyed traveling when he had the chance. Although he received little recognition during his lifetime, he has come to be considered one of Europe's greatest poets. His visionary work—at once local and cosmic—has influenced such figures as Rilke, Heidegger, Celan, and Cixous.
