Heinrich Wilhelm von Gerstenberg was a German poet and critic.Gerstenberg was born in Tondern, Schleswig After attending school in Husum and at the Christianeum Hamburg, and studying law at the University of Jena, he entered the Danish military service and took part in the Russian campaign of 1762 He spent the next twelve years in Copenhagen, where he was intimate with Friedrich Gottlieb Klopstock From 1775 to 1783 he represented Denmark s interests as Danish Resident at L beck, and in 1786 received a judicial appointment at Altona, where he died in November 1823.In the course of his long life Gerstenberg passed through many phases of his nation s literature He began as an imitator of the Anacreontic school T ndeleyen, 1759 then wrote, in imitation of Gleim, Kriegslieder eines d nischen Grenadiers 1762 with his Gedicht eines Skalden 1766 he joined the group of bards led by Klopstock He translated Beaumont and Fletcher s Maid s Tragedy 1767 , and helped to usher in the Sturm und Drang period with a gruesome but powerful tragedy, Ugolino 1768 But he did perhaps even better service to the new literary movement with his Briefe ber Merkw rdigkeiten der Litteratur 1766 1770 , in which the critical principles of the Sturm und Drang, and especially its enthusiasm for Shakespeare, were first definitely formulated In later life Gerstenberg lost touch with literature, and occupied himself mainly with Kant s philosophy.His Vermischte Schriften appeared in 3 vols 1815 The Briefe ber Merkw rdigkeiten der Litteratur were republished with an introduction by Alexander von Weilen 1888.
