Christian Furchtegott Gellert QuotesShowing all quotes
|Birth:||4th July, 1715|
|Death:||13th December, 1769|
Christian Furchtegott Gellert was born in Hainichen, Saxony, Germany. He was a German poet, one of the forerunners of the golden age of German literature that was ushered in by Lessing. In 1751 he was appointed extraordinary professor of philosophy, a post which he held until his death at Leipzig. He thus became one of the most popular German authors, and some of his poems enjoyed a celebrity out of proportion to their literary value. This is more particularly true of his Fabeln und Erzählungen and of his Geistliche Oden und Lieder.
