Poet. One of the founders of modern German literature. At first he attended a military academy, and became an army surgeon where he began to write "Storm and Stress" verse and plays. The revolutionary appeal of his first play "The Robbers," made it an instant success. He later settled in Dresden, where his works included the poem "Ode to Joy," later set to music by Beethoven in his Ninth Symphony. He became professor of history. His works include trilogy "Wallenstein," the greatest historical drama "Maria Stuart" and "Wilhelm Tell." (bio by: Jelena)
