German classical philologist working mostly in the field of Greek philology, a translator and a university professor. He is regarded as one of the most important twentieth-century German classical philologists as well as one of the most effective communicators of ancient Greek literature. Schadewaldt's published works cover all genres of ancient Greek poetry: epic, lyric, and drama as well as philosophy and historiography. His work on Homer marks a high point. In addition to countless separate publications, his analyses in all these areas are collected in his six-volume Tübingen Lectures, delivered between 1950 and 1972. Wolfgang Schadewaldt died on 10 November 1974 in Tübingen, aged 74.
