About Friedrich Hölderlin

Friedrich Hölderlin was a famous german lyric poet, commonly associated with the artistic movement known as Romanticism. The poetry of Hölderlin, widely recognized today as one of the highest points of German literature, was little known or understood during his lifetime, and slipped into obscurity shortly after his death; his illness and reclusion made him fade from his contemporaries' consciousness – and, even though selections of his work were published by his friends during his lifetime, it was largely ignored for the rest of the 19th century. We are sharing here a list of his great best poems translated from german to english.

In the great poems of his maturity, Hölderlin would generally adopt a large-scale, expansive and unrhymed style. Hölderlin was a poet-thinker who wrote, fragmentarily, on poetic theory and philosophical matters.
