Paul Heyse
Birth: Mar. 15, 1830
Death: Apr. 2, 1914

Author. He received the 1910 Nobel Prize for Literature. Regarded as a master of the short novel, his style was elegant and conservative, and he seldom depicted the dark side of life. The novella "The Fury" (1855), a love story set in Italy, and the novel "Children of the World" (1882) are probably his best works. Paul Johann Ludwig von Heyse was born in Berlin. After classical studies in Italy he settled in Munich, where he spearheaded a school of writers who defended traditional artistic values. He later bitterly opposed Naturalism and other new literary trends. Hugely prolific, Heyse penned 120 novellas, six novels, several volumes of poetry, and translations into German of Italian poets; he also wrote 50 plays, none of them successful. His reputation faded in the early 1900's and his winning the Nobel Prize, at age 80, was widely disputed.  (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
