Heyse, Paul Johann Ludwig von


Heyse, Paul Johann Ludwig von

▪ German writer
born March 15, 1830, Berlin, Prussia [Germany]
died April 2, 1914, Munich, Ger.
 German writer and prominent member of the traditionalist Munich school who received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1910.

      Heyse studied classical and Romance languages and traveled for a year in Italy, supported by a research grant. After completing his studies he became an independent scholar and was called to Munich by Maximilian II of Bavaria. There, with the poet Emanuel Geibel (Geibel, Emanuel), he became the head of the Munich circle of writers, who sought to preserve traditional artistic values from the encroachments of political radicalism, materialism, and realism. He became a master of the carefully wrought short story, a chief example of which is L'Arrabbiata (1855). He also published novels (Kinder der Welt, 1873; Children of the World) and many unsuccessful plays. Among his best works are his translations of the works of Giacomo Leopardi and other Italian poets. His poems provided the lyrics for many lieder by the composer Hugo Wolf (Wolf, Hugo). Heyse, who was given to idealization and who refused to portray the dark side of life, became an embittered opponent of the growing school of Naturalism, and his popularity had greatly decreased by the time he received the Nobel Prize.
