"Hyperion" is a novel of remarkable emotional force, poetic
sublimity, and enduring influence. This sole novel by the iconic
German lyric poet explores the pivotal phases of a poet's life
journey, the struggle for freedom, the divinity of nature and love,
and the meaning of solitude. Friedrich HAlderlin's gestures toward
a higher spiritual unity left their mark on the founding texts of
the nineteenth century.
Friedrich HAlderlin (17701843) has achieved recognition as one
of the greatest German poets of lyrical verse. His work had a
profound influence on German Romanticism.
