Dimension2: Contemporary German-Language Literature

LEHMANN, Wilhelm
Wilhelm Lehmann was born in 1882 in Venzuela but grew up near Hamburg. He concluded his studies of modern languages, natural science, and philosophy with a dissertation on the history of language. With the exception of his participation in the First World War, he remained a teacher, working in many places including Wickersdorf before the First World War, until he retired in 1947. After that he lived as a free-lance writer until his death in 1968. Although he started writing prose, he is perhaps best known for his nature poetry, which was influenced by Oskar Loercke and which, in turn, influenced poets such as Karl Krolow.
