Christian Morgenstern


German lyric poet who wrote seriouis poetry as well as nonsense literature. He also wrote many lyrics that were ironical and satirical, all the while leading an eccentric life.

His serious poetry, influenced by Nietzche and Rudolf Steiner centers on mythological, cosmological themes, and philosophical themes. He is perhaps best known, however, for the nonsense poetry, the most famous of which is "Die Galgenlieder" (The Gallows Song), written in 1895.

In 1893, he was diagnosed as having tuberculosis, which ultimately caused his death on 3/31/1914, Merano, Italy.
