Schumann and Literature

Schumann and Literature

(p.38) Chapter Three Schumann and Literature

Eric Frederick Jensen

Oxford University Press

This chapter describes Robert Schumann's love for literature. Schumann's first efforts as a writer came in the form of poetry. He included examples in the two anthologies he assembled, Blätter und Blümchenaus der goldenen Aue and Allerley. He continued to write poetry sporadically during his life and his most notable works include the ballad “The Bell of Ivan Veliky,”. However, he wrote proses and dramas as well. What he read often influenced his musical direction, as evident in his first songs which were inspired by his fondness for the poetry of Justinus Kerner.

Keywords:   Robert Schumann, Blätter und Blümchenaus der goldenenAue, Allerley, The Bell of Ivan Veliky, JustinusKerner
