Über den Autor

Paul Johann Ludwig von Heyse (15 March 1830 – 2 April 1914) was a distinguished German writer and translator, a member of the two-century-old Tuesday Club of Berlin, and the recipient of the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1910 'as a tribute to the consummate artistry, permeated with idealism, which he has demonstrated during his long productive career as a lyric poet, dramatist, novelist and writer of world-renowned short stories.' Best known for his work 'The Children of the World' ('Die Kinder der Welt', 1873), Heyse's literary style is characterized by his elegant prose, mastery of form, and a keen sensitivity towards the psychological nuances of his characters. Spanning a prolific career, Heyse also penned the well-regarded novellas 'L'Arrabbiata' (1855) and 'The Dead Lake' (1851), which showcased his narrative deftness and cemented his reputation as a key figure in 19th-century literature. Heyse's literary accomplishments and curated collection of folk-poetry 'Italienisches Liederbuch' further contributed to his standing in the literary community. His works typically engaged with themes of love, tragedy, and the complexities of human emotion, making him a beloved author of his time and a significant contributor to the Western literary canon.
