Poet. Born in Saxon Vogtland, Germany, he was educated in law at the University of Jena and setup practice in Dresden in 1834. Always having an interest for literary poem and the art of the stage, he was appointed director of the Court Theatre at Oldenburg in 1844. He published two epics early in his career, "Lied vom Ritter Wahn" (1831) and a version of the Wandering Jew "Ahasver" (1838). He owed his theatrical appointment for presentation of his poem verse plays, with the first being "Heinrich der Finkler" (1836). In 1842, he started a successful sting of theatrical poem plays which included "Kaiser Otto III", "Die Bräute von Florenz" and "Wendelin und Helene". Mosen's best known single poems were "Die letzten Zehn vom vierten Regiment", "Andreas Hofer", "Der Nußbaum", "Der Nußbaum" and "Der Trompeter an der Katzbach". In 1846, he was stricken with paralysis of rheumatic illness and was bed-ridden until his death at age 64 in Oldenburg, Germany.
