Karl Blind

Blind, Karl (blĭnt) [key], 1826–1907, German revolutionary and German-English writer. Arrested for his part in the German uprisings of 1848–49, he was later freed and from 1852 lived in England. There he became a distinguished writer on politics, history, literature, and especially German folklore and ethnology. He was the stepfather of the poet Mathilde Blind, 1841–96, who as Claude Lake published four books of poetry and in her own name became a leader in the struggle for women's rights.
