Clemens Brentano

a.k.a. Clemens Maria Wenzeslaus von Brentano

Author Code: GCVB

Born: Sep. 9, 1778 - Koblenz, Germany

Died: Jul. 28, 1842 - Aschaffenberg, Germany

Educated at the University of Halle and the University of Jena, Brentano became friends with many of Germany's literary notables, including Goethe, Tieck and Schlegel. He gave up his studies to travel throughout Germany. He met Achim von Arnim in Heidelberg and they collaborated on Des Knaben Wunderhorn (1805-08), a collection of German folk songs which would inspire subsequent lyric poets in Germany. Von Arnim would later marry Brentano's sister Bettina, who would go on to become Goethe's famous correspondent. In 1801, he published Godwi, his first novel and later that year produced Ponce de Leon a suspense drama which won acclaim. His wife, the poet Sophis Mereau, died in 1806, and Brentano then spent some time traveling in Germany, where he met the brothers Grimm, and in Austria where he wrote a drama before returning to Berlin. In 1817, he published his most famous piece, Die Geschichte vom braven Kaspar und dem sconen Annerl (The Story of Brave Caspar and Beautiful Annie). It was in this year that he underwent a religious conversion to Catholicism. He then spent the next seven years acting as a recorder for the stigmatized nun Katherine Emmerich. After her death in 1824, he traveled in Germany again until settling in Munich in 1833. He continued to write until his death. His works include Die Lustigen Musikanten (1803), Die Grundung Prags (1815), Victoria und ihre Geschwister (1817), The Dolorous Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ (1833), Gockel, Hinkel and Gackeleia (1838), Fairy Tales of the Rhine (1846 Posthumous) and Romanzen vom Rozenkrantz (1852 Posthumous).
