Friedrich Ruckert

a.k.a. Freimund Raimar *

Author Code: GFRR

Born: May 16, 1788 - Schweinfurt, Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, Germany

Died: Jan. 31, 1866 - Neuses, Near Coburg, Germany

Educated at the Schweinfurt Gymnasium and the universities of Wurzburg and Heidelberg, Ruckert joined the editorial staff of Morgenblatt in Stuttgart soon after leaving school. He published his first book of poetry, German Poems, in 1814. In 1820, he moved to Coburg and in 1826 was named professor of Oriental Languages at the University of Erlangen. Ruckert was an exceptional linguist and had mastered thirty languages. In 1841, he took a similar position at the University of Berlin, which he held until his retirement in 1849. He continued to publish until shortly before his death. His poetical translations, especially of Oriental poetry, are among his best and most respected work. His works include The Wreath of the Times (1817), Eastern Roses (1822), Collected Poems (1834-38), Oriental Myths and Poems (1837), Brahmin Stories (1839), Saul and David (1843), Herodes the Great (1844), Hamasa, or the Oldest Arabian Folk Songs (1846) and A Dozen Fight Songs for Schleswig-Holstein (1864).
