Detlev von Liliencron (1844 - 1909)
Baron Detlev von Liliencron born Friedrich Adolf Axel Detlev Liliencron (June 3, 1844 Kiel - July 22, 1909) was a German lyric poet and novelist from Kiel. Liliencron was one of the most eminent of German lyric poets of his time; his Adjutantenritte, with its fresh original style, broke with the well-worn literary conventions then prevalent which had been handed down from the middle of the century. Rainer Maria Rilke, among others, was heavily influenced by Liliencron's poems. Liliencron's work is, however, somewhat uneven, since he lacked the sustained power which makes a prose writer successful.
