Founded in 1576, the University of Helmstedt was a brilliant center
of late German humanism, a period that has been largely neglected
in academic research. For the first time, this volume presents the
lyrical works of Heinrich Meibom the Elder (1555-1625), who held
the Helmstedt professorship of poetry for over 40 years. If offers
a representative selection of his work, including texts in all the
formats of neo-Latin poetry that he employed (including parodies of
Horace, Virgilian centos, occasional poems, and spiritual poetry).
An appendix including poetic self-references and biographical
documentation provides insights into the author s working world."
