Good German Poetry Autors?
Anyone could recommend me a list of german poetry autors and their most famous works? Please I always thought that german poetry is cool cuz they have very specific words and the compound words
Well, that's quite easy to find on the internet, but not easy to answer because we do not know what kind of poetry or which epoch you like.
If you want to get to know the German Romanticism I'd recommend you to read some of Schiller, Eichendorff, Clemens Brentano, Heinrich Heine, Schlegel, ETA Hoffmann
And you can find pretty much everything here
I love Christian Morgenstern (example https://www.mumag.de/gedichte/mor_c24.html) and Hilde Domin (example https://www.deutschelyrik.de/nur-eine-rose-als-stuetze.html) .
I like poems of Erich Kästner
Especially "Kennst du das Land, wo die Kanonen blühn?" https://www.deutschelyrik.de/kennst-du-das-land-wo-die-kanonen-bluehn.html
Goethe is one of my go to poets for German. He's fairly popular (as far as German poets can be popular)
I really like this https://www.welt-der-rosen.de/rosged/silesius.htm
This page is a nice overview http://www.asu.cas.cz/~bezdek/moje_stranky/die%20schoensten%20deutschen%20gedichte.htm
Here can you read twenty famous poems and hear some of them https://www.lyrikmond.de/gedichte-thema-4-99.php
This is a goldmine with a very comprehensive list of authors https://www.mumag.de/gedichte/
There the texts of many Lieder by Schubert (based on some of the best poets of his time) with French and English translation http://www.harmoniamundi.com/doc/2908750.61.pdf
Hope you find something you like :)
I'm not familiar with the contemporary scene, but four that spring immediately to mind are Goethe, Heine, Schiller and Hesse
Yes! One of my German goals is to someday read Goethe in German. Thank you. :)
Thanks Raffo. Your request for recommendations has triggered an interesting response, with lots of useful suggestions that we can all enjoy.
To add a modern author to the growing list, Jan Wagner is probably worth mentioning.
For the sillier side of things, I'd mention Heinz Erhardt.
I also like Theodor Fontane.
